Obedience classes can be beneficial for dogs that seem to be especially hard to train. Obedience class instructors know how to solve a variety of issues, like constant barking and general disobedience.

It takes small steps to crate train your puppy; they must become accustomed to it. When they seem comfortable in it with the door open, try shutting the gate and feed them treats through the wires. At first, only close the gate for a short time, then gradually extend the time as your dog becomes more comfortable. If your puppy gets upset, then you may need to slow down and have more patience with them.

If you pour too much information and training into your puppy, it will actually be counterproductive. Keep your training sessions short and sweet, this will help your puppy be more focused. You want to end the session on a positive note; if you push too hard, he will end up dreading your training sessions.

Take your dog on a long walk before you go to work or are leaving your place for a while. If your dog is exhausted, he won’t experience as much anxiety when you leave.

Most often, dogs bite someone out of self-protective instincts due to fear. The dog will feel fear if it is startled, trapped or feels threatened. Never use force to train your dog. This makes your dog more likely to bite. Once your dog trusts you, it will want to do everything in its power to make you happy and will think of you as its leader.

There are different tricks you can try when you are crate training your dog. To get a hesitant dog enthusiastic about getting in a crate, put a tempting treat like a fresh chew toy inside and close it up while your dog is outside. Your dog will want to get into the crate in order to eat the treat. Once they go in the crate, praise them so that they know they did well.

Consistency is important during your dog training. Make a list of the commands that you are teaching your dog, and be sure that everyone in your household knows them. Make sure the whole household is being consistent with training cues. If everyone is on the same page, the dog will better understand what is expected of him.

Training depends on consistency. You need to be the one in charge at all times. If you cannot wait for your order to be obeyed, do not ask anything of your pet.

Dog training is a great investment. Bad behavior on your dog’s part is stressful for you as well as your dog. If your dog knows you’re angry but doesn’t understand what he did wrong, he’ll get upset and be more likely to repeat bad behavior. And his human owners will have to spend money on replacing damaged possessions while worrying about what their dog might destroy next. This just makes both humans and dogs unhappy; soon everyone, including the dog, wonders why the family adopted him in the first place. By using the advice in this article, your dog can become a well-behaved, well-loved member of your family that everyone can enjoy!
