To a loving person, a dog offers unconditional affection and fellowship. When compared to an untrained dog, a well-trained dog increases the enjoyment and happiness tenfold. According to studies, a well-trained dog is a happier and more content animal than an untrained dog. I’ve been training dogs for more than 25 years, and my goal has always been to have a happy pet that I can handle in any situation, even when it comes into contact with children or other animals. I was able to do this without causing any cruelty to the dogs or breaking their spirits. If you use the right training methods, you’ll be surprised by how easily your dog learns to obey your commands. The following are some excellent dog training methods for teaching your dog some basic obedience skills: this post
The Instruction to Sit –
This is the most common and simple command to teach your dog, and it should definitely be the first. For most preparation, using a treat as a reward for good behaviour works well. To keep your dog steady, you’ll need to tie a leash to his collar. Show your dog a treat in your hand and place it over his head, causing him to look up, then command him to sit. Occasionally, just putting the treat over his head will cause your dog to sit. If your dog refuses to sit, put your other hand on his back and gently press down while saying “Down.” When he sits, instantly reward him with the treat and compliment him by saying “Good Boy” in a happy voice and enthusiastically petting him to show him you are pleased with his response to your “Sit” order. It’s important to reward him right away after he answers correctly, so he understands why he’s being rewarded.
The Order to Lie Down –
You will move on to the “Lay Down” command until your dog has mastered the “Wait” command. This is often done with the aid of a treat. To begin, ask your dog to “Sit.” Do not reward him for sitting by offering him a treat. You should have a treat in your hand and keep it in front of him, really low to the floor, and say “Lay Down” when he is sitting. If possible, put your other hand on your dog’s shoulders and gently push down until he falls asleep, or gently pull on his leash downward. If your dog has laid down, instantly reward him with a treat and say “Good Boy” in a cheerful tone while vigorously petting him to show him you are pleased with his response to your “Lay Down” order. The sound of your voice is crucial in conveying your satisfaction with your pet’s response to your command.
