A Few Dog Training Techniques


Proper dog training classes are among the basic needs of your dog. You should start dog training and socialization as soon as possible since it is easier to train a puppy than a grown dog. Dog training is a significant project and seems overwhelming, especially if it is your first dog. Taking the process step at a time makes the task more accessible and more enjoyable. The following guidelines will help you get started;

Begin a dog obedience program
Many dogs thrive best with predictable day-to-day routines and set boundaries. Obedience training helps dogs know how to behave, promoting good health and happiness both to the dog and the owner. The different ways of enrolling your dog for an obedience program include:
Signing up for dog training activities.
Sending your dog to a professional trainer.
Hiring the trainer for private lessons.

Training your dog on your own enables you to bond and saves on training costs.
Practical dog training requires good planning. It involves gathering the necessary equipment, learning about dog training, and setting up a schedule. Commitment to the plan is vital for success in the program. Before beginning the obedience program, it is essential to choose the method that best suits you and the dog. The training styles vary, but training experts agree that dogs respond best to positive reinforcement such as treats and praise.


Training by use of games
Learning is more accessible when you are having a good time for humans as well as dogs. Playtime is vital for dogs, just as serious sessions. Playtime gives your dog mental stimulation and good exercise. Games with your dog can also break the monotony in the training process. Some games favor an indoor environment, while others involve outdoor interactions. Some of the games that keep your dog entertained and busy throughout the day include hide-and-seek, tug of war, fetch, and interactive treat games.

It is vital to observe signs of overheating or exhaustion while playing with your dog. You should stop if your dog shows signs of anxiety or frustration and seems tired. When playing with your dog, be aware of your surroundings, especially when other people or dogs are around.


Crate and house training
Housetraining, also known as potty training, is among the first things you need to train your dog on. It would be best to teach your dog where to eliminate it as soon as you take your dog home. It takes patience to train your dog since puppies cannot control their bowels and bladders until they are twelve weeks of age. When house training a dog, do not correct it unless you get it in the act. Keep a routine when training your dog and praise it for good behavior. Do not punish the dog physically for an accident.

Successful house training for your puppy requires consistency. It is vital to get up at the same time in the morning. Feeding should be done each day concurrently and taken out after eating. It is necessary to watch for signs of your dog when it needs a special kind of attention. As the dog learns, it gets easier to interact with it daily.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
