Little known ways to train your dog

When it comes to you training your dog to be more obedient or to change a bad habit there are plenty of ways of doing this. But all of them are ideal as a way for you being able to communicate much better with your pet. Some people will read books whilst others will prefer to take dog training lessons. But along with these you will find plenty of useful dog training free tips that one can include and use and these can easily be found online.

When you are going to start training your dog it is crucial that you start their lessons as soon as you are able to. Although even if you have a much older dog do not think that there is no way you can actually teach them anything new. Even though the saying says, "you cannot teach old dogs new tricks" this should be taken with a pinch of salt. As long as you train them in the right way even a mature dog will be able to learn the basics.

If you are actually considering using any of the free dog training tips that you see it is important to remember that your dog does not have a very long attention span. So it is important that any training you do with them does not take place for very long. If it does, they will soon become bored and then lose interest in you and what it is you are actually trying to teach them and may well just wander off to find something more interesting.

Also, when training it is a good idea that you try to mix the lessons in with other activities that you will normally do with them and this will help to hold their attention for longer. Also at all times, you should use as much positive reinforcement with your dog during the sessions. But you should only provide them with a reward when they have actually done what it is you have asked them to do.

If you do need to reprimand your dog at any time during the training then make sure that it is short and sharp. Plus you should reprimand them as soon as the problem has occurred and not later on, as they will not understand why they are being reprimanded. Again, this relates to your dog's attention span and they live for the now rather than in the past or the future.

As well as the few dog training tips that we have offered to you above there are plenty of others available that you may want to consider using in your training sessions with them. Below we provide just a few more dog training tips free that you may find very helpful.

When it comes to training your dog it is important that you establish yourself first as the pack leader (remember dogs are pack animals) and you can do this in a number of different ways. The easiest one is to get them laid down on the floor and start rubbing their belly. As soon as the dog rolls over and shows you their belly to rub they have submitted to you and now see you as the alpha dog (pack leader). By establishing yourself in the position of alpha dog (pack leader) you will find that when the training sessions are underway they will actually progress much more smoothly and easily.

When you are spending time training your dog it is important that you remember that it will take time. Plus you will need to have lots of patience and at all times you should be consistent in the way in which you train your dog. If you are able to keep these and the dog training free tips we have provided above in mind, then you will find that the whole process of teaching your dog something new will be a much more pleasurable experience for you both.
