Dog Training - Is Your Dog Under Control?
Urgent Press Release For Dog Owners:
All dogs are going to have to learn some kind of dog training. They need to learn to be obedient to you.
It’s never too early or too late to train a dog. If you have just brought a puppy, then puppy training is great, the younger the better! But whatever the age of your dog, you can teach him to obey your command.
As dog owners we have a responsibility to control our dogs. They must be well behaved around people and other dogs. They should not be loud, excessive barking must be controlled. An uncontrollable dog is only going to lead to problems.
So where do you start? Well, you can start by teaching your dog some basic dog obedience commands. Basic commands such as sit, stay, come and down will go a long way to controlling your dog in most situations. You also need to get him used to a leash and walking calmly by your side.
Reward your dog when he does something right and a short, sharp reprimand with your voice when they do wrong. You should never hit or spank your dog; this can only lead to more problems
If your dog as some dog behavior problems, it could be through boredom or lack of exercise. Be sure to exercise your dog regularly and set time aside to play with him regularly. Have fun with your dog and give him plenty of stimulation. If problems persist then you should probably start seeing a professional dog trainer.
If you’re looking to find a dog trainer. Then try consulting your veterinarian or local humane society for some recommendations. When you find a dog trainer, see if you can go along and observe a class in action. See how the dog trainer treats the dogs; does he/she appear to enjoy working with dogs?
It really is worth the time to train your dog. An obedient dog is a happy dog!
