Teaching YOUR PUP: Obedience Training Basics

For successful training, practice the following basic training steps with your puppy every day. Keep training sessions short. Your pup will see everything as a casino game, so keep him stimulated by changing what he's learning. Do each control for about 5 minutes and get back to it once you can.
Practice the commands in lots of different places - in the living room, garden, hall or kitchen, even out on walks - so that he gets used to responding to you in every types of situations. You should use the click technique to assist with other areas of your puppy's training, such as stimulating him to stand still for grooming and getting him used to traveling by car.
Your pup will learn very quickly and react to love and affection as well as rewards. Obedience training will help build a long lasting bond between your two of you and you will be rewarded with a happy, well-trained dog.

Table manners

Giving directly into your puppy's every need is wii thing. As your pup increases, so will his need to say himself. Puppies often choose mealtimes as a battleground. But providing directly into him is a mistake. You need to make sure he knows that you won't respond to his every demand.
Your puppy must learn that individuals around him, particularly small kids, can be a bit unpredictable. But he needs to accept that their unpredictable behavior is not threatening. You are able to help him do that by imitating a child's behavior. Try stepping quickly towards his dish - then drop in a treat. Gently bump into him, while he's eating, or roll toys nearby - anything to result in a distraction, but drop a treat in the dish to prize him for carrying on to eat calmly. Do this every so often, but not at every food. If your pup freezes mid-mouthful, growls or glares at you, stop and try again another time. If this continues, you need to seek advice from a veterinary behaviorist or authorized dog trainer.

Reading your puppy's body language

Dogs have always communicated with one another by using body gestures. This involves cosmetic expressions, body postures, sounds and scents. Dogs will use their mouth area, eye, ears and tail expressing feelings. By learning how to interpret your puppy's body gestures, you can interpret your puppy's motives.

Symptoms of aggression or submission

If your puppy is feeling brave or aggressive, he'll try to make himself much larger by standing tall, along with his ears and tail sticking upright. He'll also push out his upper body and improve the locks on his neck and back. He might also growl and influx his tail gradually.
Alternatively, a submissive dog will try to make himself appear small and act like a puppy. It is because a grown-up dog will "tell off" a puppy but not strike him. Submission will take the form of the sideways crouch near the ground, his tail held low but wagging away. He might also try to lick the facial skin of the prominent dog or human being. He may even roll on his back again.

Your puppy's tail

The majority of us notice that tail wagging is an indicator of friendliness and pleasure, but the tail can indicate other moods, too.
The standard way a puppy holds his tail varies from breed to breed but in most cases, a tail held greater than 45 levels to the back expresses alertness and interest.
In case your puppy's tail is waved slowly and stiffly, that's an expression of anger. Whether it's clamped low over his hindquarters, it means your dog is afraid. An anxious or nervous dog may droop his tail but wag it stiffly.

Your puppy's eyes

In case your dog's eye are half closed, that's a indication of pleasure or submission, while eye wide open can indicate aggression.
In the wild, dogs stare at one another until one backs down or makes a challenge, so you should never attempt to outstare your puppy, especially if he's nervous.

Your puppy's smile

Submissive dogs and some breeds such as Labradors often open their mouths in a kind of lop-sided "grin", and indeed, it is a sign of friendliness. However when lips are drawn back again tightly to bare one's teeth, that's aggression, make no mistake.

Wanting to play

If your puppy wants to try out, he'll raise a paw or bow down and bark to attract attention. Or he might offer up a toy, or bound up to another dog to get him to join in a chase.

How your pet sees you

Your pup will watch you to learn your body signals more than he'll listen to you, and he'll quickly learn what you feel even without you speaking.
If you want to improve communication with your pup, you can improve upon your own body gestures. For example, crouching down with arms opened up out is a welcome indication while towering over him and staring is a sign of threat.

How your puppy learns

Your puppy will learn very quickly, so it's important that he learns how to behave properly immediately.
Dogs learn by association, so if your puppy will something good, reward him. Then your action is a lot much more likely to be repeated. However the prize must be linked to the action, so he must be rewarded quickly, within a second or two. The prize itself can be a few kibbles of puppy food or praise, or both.
Your puppy needs to be taught what he can and cannot do. Some harmless behaviors can be ignored, but potentially dangerous ones need to be managed immediately by interrupting the behavior with a sharp "no" to get his attention - be sure to reward him when he stops and pays attention to you. Shouting or striking will not help your pup learn.

Understanding barking and whining


Barking is a completely natural aspect of a dog's behavior, nevertheless, you, your family and your neighbours will be happier when you can bring it under control.

It's hardly surprising many people have barking problems with their dogs, since most dogs have no idea whether barking is something good or bad. That's because our a reaction to his barking is complicated to your dog. In his eyes, when he barks, he's sometimes ignored, while at other times he's shouted at to avoid, and then again he might be urged to bark if, for example, which suspicious stranger nearby.
To help your dog know when barking is acceptable, you just need to teach him that he may bark until he's told to stop. "Stop barking" should be considered as a order for obedience rather than telling off.

Start the training by letting your dog bark two or three times, praise him for sounding the alarm, then say "Stop barking" and hold on a treat in front of him. Your dog will minimize immediately only if because of the fact that he can't sniff the treat while barking. After a few seconds of tranquil, give him the prize. Gradually increase the time from when the barking prevents to the offering of the reward.
If you're concerned about excessive barking that you haven't any control over, you should seek advice from your vet about next steps, such as specialist training or therapy.


If you comfort your pup whenever he whines, it may actually make things worse. It'll make your pup think he's being praised for whining, and get him in to the habit of repeating it for your love.
You can help your pup learn to stop whining by not g,oing to him when he whines. By disregarding your puppy, in support of offering him attention and compliment when he prevents whining, he'll learn that whining and whimperig is not the way to earn your approval.
