How to train a dog in a proper way

Dog training in proper way

A well-trained dog is a happy dog as he knows his position in his human family. Puppies can be taught simple commands starting at seven to eight weeks of age. Positive reinforcement, such as a small piece of a tasty treat or lavish praise, should be given immediately when the puppy obeys the command. When you start training your dog, perform the commands for 10 to 15 minutes at a time. – You should also start with shorter time periods he has to stay in each command.

Puppies can be taught simple commands starting at seven to eight weeks of age. Trying to do more than that will not benefit you or the dog because his attention span can’t handle it.
Positive reinforcement, such as a small piece of a tasty treat or lavish praise, should be given immediately when the puppy obeys the command. Keep a bag of small, tasty treats handy, such as tiny cubes of cheese or very small pieces of cooked chicken, to immediately reward your pup for any steps towards learning the new command or cue.
– Once the puppy is consistently obeying your command, the treats can be given intermittently then gradually phased out, replaced with consistent praise.
– If you fail to reward immediately, the puppy will become confused as to what you expect from her or him.

The commands used need to be short, one or at the most two words. Always praise your puppy for any attempt in the right direction, and absolutely never yell or hit your puppy.
Each of these principles can be used for all the commands you use for training. The key to the reward system is to reward immediately, be consistent, and use simple command words. The best time to conduct a training session is when the puppy is relaxed and alert.
When you start training your dog, perform the commands for 10 to 15 minutes at a time. During this time period, spread out which commands you teach. You can do this up to three times a day with different commands.
– You should also start with shorter time periods he has to stay in each command. When you are first teaching him to sit, for example, try to make him sit for three seconds before rewarding him. As he learns, move the time up, increasing until he can stay for 30 seconds or longer.

Rottweilers are naturally loyal dogs and aim to please their owners. A well-trained dog is a happy dog as he knows his position in his human family. Investing a little time each day to training your Rottweiler puppy will help him adjust well to the family and make him a great canine citizen for years to come. You can also purchased a training book here.

You’re probably like most people. He’s grayed, his gait is slower and it takes more stretches to get up from the bed or floor.

Friendliness toward dogs and friendliness toward humans are two completely different things. Some dogs may try or attack to dominate other dogs even if they’re love-bugs with people; others would rather play than fight; and some will turn tail and run. Breed isn’t the only factor; dogs who lived with their littermates and mother until at least 6 to 8 weeks of age, and who spent lots of time playing with other dogs during puppyhood, are more likely to have good canine social skills.

When they die, it was exciting to share ideas with you in our last blog about what people are doing to honor their dog. From that, you got the permission you needed to do what you WANT to do, not what others tell you that you SHOULD or SHOULD N’T do. You do what you want to do to honor this precious love in your life.

Where did the time go?

Close your eyes for a minute and see these things. Hear these things.

The permission of today is to take “that day” and to begin to fill it with all of those things that you will want to remember. Those things that you know in your heart you will always want to have, from the recording of their special bark or meow to a photo of them in that spot they always lie in the garden.

It’s one of the “when’s” that we sign up for when we get a pet. The day that we know we are on the final walk, whether it’s age or illness related.

What are they?

Celebrate the days they lived and you shared together.

We were going to talk more about rituals in this piece. It’s important to have the rememberance rituals down before that final day as these are the events and activities that might just shape what you will do after death.

The Basic Dog Obedience Training

The Basic Dog Obedience Training

Dog training obedienceKeep in mind that puppies have short attention spans, and it is unreasonable to expect to have your puppy’s full attention for a long period of time. Keep your sessions short at first to minimize distractions and maintain your dog’s attention, gradually increasing the amount of time spent on training each day.

Dog Command: Sit

The sit is one of the easiest skills to teach. A puppy who sits on command is easier to manage until he learns more self-control. For example, when you teach your dog to sit when the doorbell rings, he is less likely to jump up on visitors when the door opens.

Trying to control a dog who hasn’t learned obedience commands is exhausting and often nearly impossible. But teaching him five simple commands will make a world of difference and provide a great opportunity for bonding.

How to Teach Sit

Once your dog can walk on a loose leash, begin to pair the behavior with the heel command. This means “stay close to my left leg whether we are stopped or walking.” Take a few steps with your dog in the heel position, treat, and praise. Practice, practice, and more practice are required to teach your dog this command.

Never call a dog to come for discipline. If so, you will teach him to associate the command with a negative consequence. If your dog is behaving badly, always go to him rather than calling him to you.

How to Teach Down.

Loose-leash walking takes a dedicated owner who allows her dog to make mistakes and has the patience to teach him the proper behavior.


The down command is a good management tool that helps keep dogs out of trouble and out from underfoot. This behavior is often difficult for many dogs to learn because it’s a submissive posture. A shy or fearful dog might have more trouble learning or performing a down, so go slowly while teaching this skill. Use a happy voice, lots of praise, and good treats while training.

Dog command To teach the sit:

Get on your puppy’s level, either on the floor or in a chair next to him.
Hold a treat close to his nose and let his head follow the treat as you move your hand up.
As his head moves up, his butt will lower.
When his butt hits the floor, release the treat to his mouth. Immediately praise him for his brilliance.
Repeat multiple times every day. Pair the behavior with the word “sit.”.

How to Teach Stay.

How to Teach Come.

To teach loose-leash walking:.

Don’t hold the treat so high that your dog tries to jump up for it. Instead, hold it in your closed hand just high enough that he stretches his neck. Every time his rump hits the floor, tell him “Good sit!” This is a great game for children in the house to play with your dog.

If your dog lunges toward your hand, say “Nope” and take your hand away before he can get to the treat. If he tries to sit up, break away and start again. Never push him into a down.

Repetitions are important, but your dog will tire of multiple reps. Rather, play the sit game with your dog in short bursts multiple times every day. Reinforce the sit in other situations, like mealtimes. Have him sit before you put his food bowl on the floor or before you open the door to take him on a walk. If he breaks the sit, remind him of his job with a quiet “Oops, try again” before you open the door. If this command is reinforced every time you ask your dog to sit away from the door, he will be less likely to bolt and run when the door opens. In this respect, the sit command can be a lifesaver.

Your dog has already begun to learn the come command on leash and to understand that the leash connects the two of you. It’s time to begin to train him to walk politely and calmly by your side.

How to Teach Walk Nicely On Leash.

Dog sit trainingClever dog that he is, your dog will try everything to get to the treat. He’s showing effort and should not be punished for thinking. Encourage every little bit of progress until he understands the command. After a successful attempt, always release your dog from the down and run off to play with him.

Don’t get in the bad habit of yelling “Come come come” multiple times if your dog does not respond. Remember the one-word, one-command rule: Once your dog understands the command, if he does not come the first time you ask, go to him and gently guide him to where you want him to be. If you stand in the yard or at the door and holler repeatedly, he either doesn’t understand the command yet or you are expecting too much too soon.

The come command is another useful tool for managing annoying puppy behaviors. This command helps keep a dog out of trouble or gives him a job to do. If he escapes the fenced yard or bolts out an open door, the come command can also save his life. This foundation skill is one that the two of you will use and refine for the rest of his life.

To teach the down:.
Hold a very tasty treat in your closed hand and place it at your dog’s muzzle.
When he notices the scent of the treat, move your hand toward the floor. He should follow the hand that hides the treat.
While the dog’s head follows your hand, move your hand along the floor in front of him. His body will follow his head, and once he stretches out into a down, open your hand to let him eat the treat.
Repeat multiple times daily and pair the behavior with the word “down.”.

Attach his leash to his buckle collar and say “Let’s go” using your happy voice. Put treats in your left side pocket or a bait bag.
Encourage his forward motion by patting your left leg. When he is close to your side, pop a treat in his mouth.
Every few steps stop to praise him for being in the correct place.
When he forges ahead or lags behind, stop to let him wander to the end of his leash.
The slight leash tension will cause him to turn around. As soon as you feel the slack in the line, say your verbal praise marker: “Yes!” Praise and treat when he bounces back to you.
When he pulls, practice the “be a tree” principle, stopping all motion. His unwanted behavior will self-correct. Wait him out if he doesn’t come back to your side.

The goal with stay is to teach your dog that his job is to remain right where he is until given further instructions.

Walk Nicely on Leash.
A dog who doesn’t lunge or pull at the end of his lead shows your neighbors and friends that you have trained him to be a good member of the community. Additionally, a dog who walks attentively next to his owner is less likely to become fearful in new situations.

To teach the come:.
Clip a light line to your dog’s collar and let him drag it around.
After he is accustomed to the line, pick up the end and hold it as you follow him around the yard. As he gets used to this, he’ll begin to understand that the two of you are attached.
With your marker word in mind–” yes”– and a few treats, walk backward, encouraging him to follow along. When he twirls around and comes toward you, say “Yes!” and treat. Tell him that he’s the cleverest dog in the world.
Begin to pair the behavior with the word “come.” Every time he responds correctly, praise and reward him. Make the come command a game that your puppy wants to play.

To teach the stay:.
Put a leash on your dog and have him sit comfortably next to you.
Wave a flat palm toward his muzzle and say “Stay.”.
Step in front of your dog, wait a few seconds, and then step back beside him.
Reward him for not breaking his stay.
If he moves, calmly say “Oops” or “Uh uh” and put him back where he was initially. Again, give the stay command along with the hand signal.
Practice this multiple times every day in different locations.
After rewarding him with praise and a treat for success, teach him a release word, or the word you will say when it’s time for him to be released from the stay. A good release word is “okay.”.

The stay command is one of the hardest for puppies and young dogs to master. Asking a dog, who only wants to sit on his owner’s feet or lean against her while she is in the kitchen, to stay put in another area is almost asking too much! Like the other basic commands, however, the stay is a lifesaver. A dog who is taught to stay won’t chase a duck in a pen or charge a cow in a field. The dog who understands stay can also go on to more advanced obedience or rally competitions.

Early socialization for puppies


I’m extremely frank about the estimation of early socialization for puppies. The instruction they get ahead of schedule in life can not be supplanted by pills, treatment, stun collars, dutifulness classes, or having their teeth ground down so that when they chomp somebody, at any rate the individual will likely not require lines. There’s not a viable alternative for simply understanding that little person out there and acquainting him with whatever number distinctive individuals, places, things, sounds, sights, floor materials, creatures and situations as would be prudent wonderfully so he figures out how to acknowledge or like every one of those things. In doing as such, you will build up a great pooch who has few, if any “issues” as a grown-up.

In this way, how about we take a gander at these three cases…

Consider the possibility that you didn’t understand the significance of early socialization, and you’ve effectively embraced a pooch more than 4 months old.

Consider the possibility that you know how imperative socialization is, yet you end up in a position to embrace a salvage, or a juvenile canine from a sanctuary.

Imagine a scenario where you didn’t know that it was so basic to mingle (or possibly somebody let you know that it would be “more secure” not to open the pup to outside “germs” until he completed his last puppy shots at 16 weeks of age) and you incidentally did not open your puppy to anything other than rather your own home and family amid the time he was eight to sixteen weeks old.

All things considered, your puppy could be at danger for creating “issues” or “social sensitivities.” This is essentially a trepidation of the obscure. Pups in the wild see practically all that they would see as a grown-up when they are 16 weeks old. As a method for self safeguarding, if the puppy sees something further down the road that it DIDN’T see as a pup, it accept it is hazardous, regardless of the possibility that it’s something innocuous, similar to a turtle. In the event that it never saw a turtle as a pup and examined it to figure out whether it was protected or hazardous, the regular nature is to expect it will execute him.

Presently some tamed canines are all the more “accommodating” as grown-ups and can take new things without accepting the new thing is hazardous. They wouldn’t make due in the wild, yet they are less demanding to live with. Most mutts, in any case, do best on the off chance that they have appropriate socialization as puppies to help them discover that new things and new circumstances will probably be protected than risky.

When you don’t have the foggiest idea about the canine’s history or in the event that you know they didn’t get mingled (or more terrible, on the off chance that they were mishandled at a youthful age) you or the puppy won’t understand that there are potential fears hiding later on. Sitting at home, cuddling on the sofa with you, there’s no requirement for the puppy to get crazy. The pup was acquainted with you, your home, and your lounge chair amid his basic socialization period. From every angle, he appears like an ordinary immature canine. Yet, what happens the first occasion when he sees something irregular, or “not of this world.”

Assume you were dozing serenely in your bed, when you were stirred abruptly by a cluster of green-confronted outsiders grabbing all of you over? You’d likely screech. You’d presumably battle them and attempt to escape.

On the off chance that you had a weapon convenient, you’d presumably attempt to murder them (in self-protection, obviously.) This is most likely how your un-mingled puppy feels when he is drawn nearer and petted by somebody who looks “outsider” to him. This could be a non-white individual; somebody wearing an entertaining cap; somebody with an unpredictable walk; or even somebody of the inverse sex of the individual who raised him. Believe it or not; your puppy may detest and/or be unnerved of your future kid or sweetheart, basically on the grounds that he wasn’t acquainted with any individuals from the inverse sex, as a puppy.

This isn’t on the grounds that the puppy is terrible, moronic or awful. It is simply because he is damaged of novel boosts –the things that are “green outsiders” to him (stuff he’s not been acclimated with amid the basic socialization time frame.) He was persuaded that an enclosure in a pet shop or a home with a patio was the degree of the universe, and now he’s going to get constrained into a world where practically everything is outsider.

This original copy is to help you manage mutts that have social sensitivities or could create them.

We should backpedal to the primary case. You have yourself a puppy more than 4 months old and you’re not certain if that canine got legitimate socialization amid the basic time frames. This is a bet. The pooch you have could end up being genuinely ordinary, contingent upon how much and what sort of socialization he got. You simply don’t have the foggiest idea. In this way, you ought to approach every single new circumstance circumspectly.

When this pooch meets something surprisingly, similar to a feline, or somebody wearing a kimono, or a crying youngster, you ought not quickly approach the possibly unnerving thing. Hang back and sustain your pooch a ton of treats in the nearness of the new thing. You don’t know whether he will be alarmed into a crazy fit, or simply say, “Goodness, a jokester… . extravagant that.” So, take no chances and attempt to make a wonderful relationship with this new “outsider” being. Try not to drive him to permit himself to be held (grabbed) or touched by an alarming new individual, until he has had adequate chance to understand that:

the new individual or thing is not going to hurt him, and you will secure him

loads of treats mystically show up at whatever point this new thing is around

he won’t be constrained into anything, and he’s allowed to move away on the off chance that he turns out to be excessively alarmed

the treats vanish in the meantime the new individual vanishes

It’s your employment not to give any new individuals a chance to alarm the canine. Accept an open door to instruct. Clarify that the reason your pooch supposes this individual is a mutant with two heads is on the grounds that some insensible individual fizzled so mingle him as a puppy. Permitting contact with the alarmed canine will just strengthen the apprehension. It is ideal in the event that you have the new individual overlook the canine until the puppy feels sufficiently great to be in the same region as the startling individual. Try not to give the new individual a chance to approach the pooch or reach for him. The DOG ought to go to them, in the event that he decides to. Simply tell the new individual “I don’t know whether my puppy will be anxious, so please stay still and keep your hand still and let him come to you.” You might need to include “on the off chance that he moves away, kindly don’t attempt to tail him or hold him.”

Be exceptionally cautious. A puppy’s common response to amazing apprehension is to escape, or on the off chance that he can’t escape, he will assault and battle for his life. Try not to put your canine or others in risk.

We should take a gander at case number two. You know it’s a bet, however you’re gazing at a truly adorable pooch in the haven, which will be executed on Thursday if nobody receives him, and you’re truly prepared to laugh in the face of any potential risk and sign appropriation papers.

Are Labrador Retrievers easy to train?


Labrador Retrievers are the most well known breed in the United States, so it’s nothing unexpected that I’ve had several them in my acquiescence classes.

I like seeing Labrador Retrievers in my classes since they are normally simple to prepare. This isn’t on the grounds that they are profoundly savvy. I would say, most Labs are respectably savvy instead of very so. Yet, this is really an advantage, on the grounds that exceptionally savvy mutts regularly utilize their knowledge to make sense of approaches to AVOID doing what they would prefer not to do, so they’re frequently additionally difficult to prepare. So whether a puppy is anything but difficult to prepare depends more on his ability to please than on his knowledge – and most Labrador Retrievers are extremely ready to satisfy.


The most widely recognized issue when preparing Labrador Retrievers is over-eagerness. Numerous Labs are considerably more enthusiastic than their proprietors suspected they would be. Youthful Labrador Retrievers, specifically, can be disorderly and uncontrollable and you should concentrate on quieting them down, quieting them down, quieting them down. This can take quite a while, on the grounds that the Labrador Retriever develops gradually. He will act like an energetic young person for a few years.

I had a 17-month-old dark Lab in my classes named Elmo, and Elmo clearly had a lack of ability to concentrate consistently clutter in addition to hyperactivity. It was difficult to keep his consideration concentrated on anything for over 30 seconds. He was always checking with his eyes and ears and sense about something all the more intriguing to do. What’s more, he couldn’t sit still, constantly needed to be in movement. Luckily, Elmo was completely well-meaning, so you really wanted to love him, however preparing a Labrador Retriever like Elmo is positively a test!


Preparing your Labrador Retriever can take some quality on your part, in light of the fact that numerous Labs are assembled like bulls, with thick effective necks. Preparing a Labrador Retriever to stroll on a chain without pulling might be the most difficult activity. Preparing them to quit bouncing on individuals is another you may truly need to take a shot at. Also, on the grounds that Labs are retrievers, they are “loud” pooches. Give them a lot of toys to bear so they won’t be enticed on bite on your family furniture.

To put it plainly, I cherish preparing Labrador Retrievers. You should simply give them adequate chances to vent their vitality and energy (by sufficiently giving activity), then show them satisfactory approaches to stroll on the chain and welcome people….and keep in mind those toys for bearing.
