Teach These Dog Commands Crucial In Obedience Training

Hi Everyone!

dog commands practiceAre you a dog owner or in the process of considering becoming one? And want to enjoy fully the experience of owning and caring for your dog? The very basic dog commands are that I would strongly recommend you teach him or her in the first place. For achieving the good conduct of your favorite your puppy or adolescent doggie must learn these to obey. Left you can see dog commands practice.

The Situation

My Friend, please, imagine the situation. You, as a proud new owner, just brought your new puppy home, and family members idolize him or her. Your kids caressed the pooch, and your spouse joins them by smiling widely. Your little favorite gets the first meal, water and indulgence, and everyone is happy.

After a time spent with the mutual familiarizing, you get tired of your pet jumping on you. Your kids noticed the doggie chews on their hands, and they are indignant. Your wife perceives as the puppy start to sniff while revolves around, then peed onto your carpet.

The symptoms can be continued further, but the point is that your puppy shows some elements you call ‘ill-mannered behavior’. My Friend, your forehead begins to wrinkle, thinking; this situation isn’t so rosy. But, think about it.

Yes, the situation is that you got an uneducated animal. However, by teaching your doggie, you can have a well-behaving, great companion. There is a good news: you already have educational practice. Namely, rearing children and puppies require the nearly same methods to achieve a good result.

Basic Dog Commands

Now we are discussing over an element of the puppy training; the first acquired canine commands. Successful dog training is unthinkable by giving confusing commands. There are a few simple reasons for why you need to teach your dog plain and clear instructions.

It will make the whole experience one of the pleasures for you and your family by not allowing your dog to dictate the terms. It will more importantly keep your dog safe from being knocked down on a busy road. It will also prevent any instances of potential mauling, and you will never have a terrified postman!

Here is a list of the basic commands:

• Sit
• Stay
• Stop
• Stand
• No (To discourage wrong behaviour)
• Fetch
• Heel (Used when walking your dog)
• Leave It (To avoid conflict with other dogs)

These are hopefully self explanatory for the most part but there is a training method that goes along with them. First of all it is to only use these words when you are training your dog. Don’t use combinations and add other words on.

Dog Commands Practice

Let’s use an example of teaching your dog to sit. You say the word “Sit” in a firm and commanding voice. Then firmly press down on your dog’s read ends and push back on the chest at the same time, until your doggie is in the desired position.

When this happens give your favorite a small reward and praise it. Continue this until s/he instantly obeys this clear, one-word command. And, here is what not to do and many make this mistake.

They will say things like “Sit boy” or “Sit Girl” or “Sit Down Now” or “Come on, Sit.” Don’t ever do that as it just causes confusion with so many words/sounds. Consequently, your canine can’t absorb and remember when they are just learning the new dog commands.

Further Development

It is the same process then for all the commands. Master one of them and then move on to the next one. Never try to do them all at the one time as this just confuses your pet dog and interrupts their training.

You can of course join a dog club where this is demonstrated, but it really is just as easy to do at home. Remember, canines love the rewards. So, keep to the single word command followed by a small reward and praise, that’s all there is to it on a consistent basis.

Advanced Training Possibility

Once these basic commands have been learned and regularly responded to – and be relentless about that – then it is a great idea to move to the more advanced training. This is called agility training where you can train your dog to do tricks, or go through obstacles.

This is great for stimulating their minds and also a fun thing to do. I always recommend listening to the experts when you wish to learn something. And if you have ever watched episodes of the “The Dog Whisperer” you will see he uses consistent and basic dog commands at all times.

My Recommendations

* Starting the education is most appropriate in early puppy hood. However, older canines can be taught just as much. Experiences show that it could take somewhat longer to beat unhealthy habits.

* Manage the early coaching sessions outside or inside on a leash only. Furthermore, keep those in the identical spot to keep away from distractions. Once you’ve both acquired the instructions properly, then begin to have lessons in other places so your puppy will grasp to pay attention despite distractions.

* Educating your puppy to occupying lying position from certain distance requires advanced command practice. I mean, it may happen that your puppy runs (either away from or towards you). Furthermore, it might occur that s/he runs towards a highway or any additional harmful space. Then you may stop him or her instantly by giving the firm down command.

* Please, take force on yourself and don’t show frustration throughout obedience training. Otherwise, you’ll frighten and confuse your animal making education lessons a bad experience for each of you. If it causes you to become pissed off, leave or step back to an order that s/he is more experienced with and finish your training on a positive way.

* There are many great instructional books and DVDs available online. And it’s an excellent idea to get yourself a small library of those to learn the basics and afterwards build up to the more advanced training techniques. However, do take the steps to learn the basic dog commands first, and then the whole process will be a fun experience for you both.

Many successes,
