To ensure success, you must ensure that the crate you are using is appropriate for the size and breed of your pet. Keep in mind that your puppy will eventually grow into a bigger dog. Get a crate that is the right size for your dog when it gets older. The crate should be big enough for the dog to turn and lie down comfortably without feeling cramped. Be prepared to reward the dog as soon as it completes a positive behavior. You want them to know they did the right thing. This is the best way to ensure that the dog understands the difference between right and wrong.

“Leave it” is a very important command that teaches your dog to drop whatever it is holding. This should be the first command you teach. You can use this command for a number of purposes. For example, it is used to prevent the dog from chewing on something or even to guide them out of harm’s way. Don’t overdo your training sessions, keep them brief and interesting for best results. Devoting strict amounts of time to any particular aspect of training will have your dog feeling distracted and bored. Ten minutes is about the length of time a dog can handle.

Every day, try to allow your pet to have an hour or so of exercise. This is on top of regular training lessons and restroom breaks. This exercise will ensure that your dog is focused when it is training time. A dog who has received plenty of exercise is happier and more responsive. All dog owners need to realize that training a dog can now be a very simple task. It should be understood that the dog owner will also go through a sort of training. It is not up to just the trainer to transform a dog’s behavior; training must follow the pet home. Any dog can take on the challenge of learning the things that their owner is trying to teach them and thrive.
