Owner-Dog mutual trust
Having a happy and properly socialized pet requires teaching and guidance from the pet's owner. Whether you have a puppy or adopt a dog, a relationship of trust should start as early as possible.
Dog training involves so many tasks. Teaching a dog the basics like: Sit, stay, look, come, drop it, take repetition and rewards. More than anything it takes patience on the part of the dog owner to be positive and persistent. Changing an unwanted behavior takes a lot of time, and you need to change it at a slow and steady pace. If you become angry and impatient with your dog, the chance to correctly modify the behavior will be more difficult.
Housebreaking is one of the first aspects involved in dog training. With a 95% success rate Poochie-Bells are recommended by professional trainers. No more whining, barking or waiting by the door, your pooch can be trained to ring the bells when they need to go outside. The bells are strategically placed on a heavy duty designer durable grosgrain ribbon to accommodate small and large breeds. Poochie Bells are portable, there are no batteries or wires so dog owners can remain consistent with housebreaking wherever you and your pooch happen to be.
Some dog breeds are more difficult to train than others. There are breed specific behaviors that need to be adapted to their environment. Herding and excessive barking are natural instincts that dog trainers and owners need to modify for a dog to adapt in their environment and home.
Create an area where your dog will feel comfortable. Whether you decide on a durable plastic or an all wire mesh crate; put a crate mat or dog bed inside the crate for warmth and comfort. Most importantly the crate needs to be the appropriate size for your dog. A large crate can be partitioned as a puppy grows into a dog. Crating your dog is not recommended for extended periods of time day in day out.
Excessive barking is an unwanted behavior that requires attention. Dogs usually bark in a standing or sitting position. Command your dog to lie down and the barking should subside. Dogs don't tend to bark when they are lying down. The command "ENOUGH" spoken in a firm tone also informs the dog to stop barking.
Speak your dog's language. Whether it is through hand gestures or verbal commands, a dog is eager to please their owner. Being praised and rewarded when they behave appropriately is part of the consistency of dog training.
