Early dog training.

Dogs may be man’s best friend, but some days will leave you frustrated and feeling like your dog is against you. Fortunately for you, it only takes a little fundamental training to shape up your dog’s behavior in the near future.

It is very easy to train some dogs in groups, but some dogs might have personalities that clash, making training them together impossible. If your dogs fight or goof off instead of paying attention, it may be wise to do a bit of one-on-one training before training them together.

Keep your dog distracted so that they can pass temptations that trigger their bad behavior. If your dog isn’t comfortable being around other dogs, as you walk him, keep him busy as you walk past other dogs. This will create a positive association between the trigger and receiving attention or entertainment from you.

Give your puppy with lots of chewable toys, otherwise he might alleviate his teething pain on your nice furniture. Replace the tasty item you do not want chewed with a designated chew toy. Try a frozen washcloth to alleviate the pain of teething for your puppy.

If your dog has problems with destructive chewing, he may be suffering from anxiety or boredom. Confining him to a safe space like a dog crate and giving him a safe chew toy will allow him to stay busy working on a project while he awaits your return.

Keep dog training techniques positive and upbeat. Remain motivated, even when training gets tough. Reward your dog often when it obeys your training commands. Punishing your dog will not achieve the desired results and does more harm than good.


When you are working on crate training with your dog or puppy small steps is what works best for them to get used to it. Once they have grown accustomed to being in the crate with the gate open, try closing the gate and feeding them small treats through the crate. Start off only putting them inside for 10 seconds, and when they seem okay with that, slowly increase the time they are inside. If the dog becomes overwhelmed, it means that you are moving too quickly for them.

Use your dog’s name when you can, as it will help to get your dog to pay attention. Over time and repetition, the dog will begin to understand their name and that they are being spoken to. The best dog names are ones that are short and are different from other commands.

Wearing a puppy out by overloading it with information and training is counterproductive. Puppies have short attention spans and they cannot focus too much, so have shorter sessions and try to be positive during them every time. If you do too much the puppy will just forget what you have taught him, and remember it in a negative way, it will be harder to help him in the end.

Avoid using those nasty wee-wee pads when potty training your new puppy. The potty pads or the wee-wee pads often leak which can leave enzymes behind that will confuse the puppy as to where they should be going potty. They also will think that things that look like the pads are okay to go to the bathroom on. Instead, it is far preferable to teach your pet that outdoors is the only acceptable place to relieve itself.

Many dog owners are surprised by the ease with which dog training can be integrated into their schedules. They are further amazed when they begin
to see great results in no time at all. If your dog is testing your patience a bit, try using a few of these tips.
