Training Your Dog

How to Make Your Dog Training Work

All you require to make your dog training work is very easy. Infact it is easier than you know. I will be discussing some the essential ingredients you need to add to your training to spice it up.

Make Training fun

To make your dog training work, you need to make your training something fun. You shouldn’t stsrt training your dog when you are in a bad mood or frustrated. You will only transfer your aggression to the dog and might make it grow uncomfortable. Grow to love every moment you spend with your dog in training. Whenever the dog isn’t giving you the result, you don’t need make a fuss out of it. Just continue doing it so he can see it as a thing of fun. This way, you both enjoy the training.

You find this very difficult because it is always late before you have decide in training your dog. The dog is already frustrated, jumping, digging, barking, pooping inside the house, or attempting to bite the neighbour. So you simply use force in training your dog which will surely yield no result.

Dog aren’t kids and will never be like them

They simply don’t comprehend things.  They can jump on you over 1,000 times a day, but each time makes no difference to them.

Kids are capable of thinking, they realize what they’ve done and they find a way to make amends, and can make a intensive effort not to do such again.

Dogs are simply dogs. Either a puppy or a matured dog, they act without thinking and wondering, they just live in the moment.  I have never had a dog come to me and say “I already know they’re going to dump me at the end”

For an optimum result from training, dogs require consistency and secure friendly surroundings. Just imagine your teacher beating you in high school. See how much terror you felt? Same as your dog, he never needs to have a sense of insecurity. An insecure and unfriendly environment hampers results of training your dog.

The dog training needs to be fun, for both you!  You should always be looking forward to spending time with your best pal each day. Don’t wait for problems to show up before feeling the need for training your dog.

Everyday training helps to keep away from the troubles that most dog owners face. My dog doesn’t pee or poop in the residence, he doesn’t jump on me, I started very early with him, I didn’t wait for troubles to crop up before, I started force training him.

You’ll see that if you commit 20 minutes or extra every day to training, a whole lot of your dog’s problems will go away.  Because you’re clearly giving him what he wishes, that is adequate attention, interaction and intellectual stimulation.

Even if you use barbaric and nasty schooling techniques, you’ll see a distinctive change in your dog but it is advisable not to use such techniques.

You shouldn’t use 20 minutes to force your dog to do something, that wouldn’t be fun for the both of you. Neither should you devote 20 minutes of your precious time each day to fight with your dog.

Spend 20 minutes of your time playing games, having fun and rewarding your dog every day. When your dog finds your training amusing and fun, then every other thing fall into place so get your dog’s toy and start having fun, training him.


Train Your Dog To Potty Inside


People often find it hard to take their dog out or perhaps too busy for hours that they simply need their dogs to poop indoor.

There comes the need for your dog to be able to poop inside, however this may seem like an impossible thing to achieve but I am telling and assuring you that IT COULD BE ACCOMPLISHED.

However, to be realistic, I will let you know it is a bit difficult, in all regards, than training your dog to poop outside.

Over the years, I have train dogs to potty indoors in bathtubs, Does it sound impossible? This is true and you can train your dog to potty inside too.

A number of people wants to take their dogs with them on a cruise ship.

As you may possibly believe, a ship isn’t always set up to have grass for dogs to poop and pee. But the physically disabled companion can’t do without his/her service dog so they have to be allowed to journey together!

We used grass carpeting in the shower or bathtub before the existence of doggy poop patches the shower/bath which made it very easy to clean up.

Initially, we used a large piece of grass carpeting, and slowly as the dog have become used to going potty within the bathtub; we cut it down to a tiny piece that could easily be tossed into any shower.

Though this might sound easy but in the truth is that it wasn’t easy, it is a bit difficult. Like training your dog to poop outside, this took a lot of time and effort, even greater so than ordinary potty training your dog.

When you train your dog to potty inside, you can’t take the puppy outside like when outdoor potty training your dog. When training your dog to potty inside, you need to use the leash to take him to that G spot and wait for him to poop there.

There are some dogs that are capable of holding their bladders for hours so that they wouldn’t pee or poop in the tub or where you want them to potty and there are also dogs that wouldn’t potty for a day simply because they don’t want to poop or pee indoor.

It will take you time, consistency and perseverance to take your dog to the same spot every day without relenting or getting tired.

At every hour, every now and then, you should walk the dog to the bathe,  tell him to go to the potty and wait.

Similar to outside potty training your dog, you shouldn’t permit the dog to run off leash within or he could probably discover a “perfect” spot to answer the call of nature which is exactly what we are striving to avoid. Consider from the dog’s attitude as being confused and just trying to get away so he could relieve himself. Do not allow him to be alone by himself for one moment.

This is all what your dog trainer will do to train your dog to potty inside, why not try it out yourself and be consistent with it, to see how magical it can be.


Training Two Dogs At A Time

Tips for training two Dogs at a time

People often think  that having two dogs is sweet, easy, fun and beneficial.

They get more than one puppy for one reason or another.  Some people love having more than one dog, and others just conclude that all dogs like to be in company of some other dog.

While most dogs always enjoy being in company of others and don’t find it difficult to share space with other dogs, some dog however do not like to share at all.

It has been discovered multiple times that the longer the dog has stayed as a single dog with his family or owner, the more complicated it is to add another dog to the family

Even dogs that experience playing with a couple of dogs in other venues, may also have trouble sharing everything he has in his environment.

Simply put, not all dogs get along so in order to keep them together you need to follow some tips and here are some for you.

When training two dogs at a time, you have to prevent them from fighting

The idea of allowing them to fight it out is a dangerous belief. I think it could cause harm and death to the dogs. Dogs can create unimaginable harm to one another and kill themselves in a very short period of time. You might be lucky that the dogs don’t kill each other, a fight like this can destroy thousands of dollars’ worth of property and that won’t be the end of your misery as the dogs will fight again if given the opportunity.

Listen to each one of them when you are training two dogs at a time

If one is growling or posturing to the opposite and the second dog is imitating those behaviours they are probably threatening each other.

Often times, people are so sure that if their dog growls and lunges it would not lead to biting. Some dog owners that don’t take their dogs behaviour seriously could get bitten in the leg by their own dog. Such will happen if you are unable to understand your dog.

Train your two dogs separately

It is very tough if not unachievable for a dog to truly learn, which means comprehend a new training while he’s competing with some other dog. This is applicable to dogs that are not opponents, too. Even dogs that like each other compete for time and treats.

And, it’s by far equally impossible to divide your time between two dogs in training. When a dog learns, he must be rewarded for showing the correct conduct for him to understand what you need.

Do not train your two dogs collectively until you feel it is reliable to do so because this might jeopardize your efforts. After the individual training is completed and reliable, then you can begin to work on them together.


The reason that I have survived my dogs rivalry is that I work on a strict, yet fun, schedule of obedience. When training two dogs at a time, obedience should be adhered to. My dogs should feel like it is a playful game to listen to me. They should both understand your commands and reactions when they are about to go for a brawl.


Stop Your Dog From Snatching


Many dog owners suffer from dogs that grab a bit of flesh when they rush in to take a treat?

This trouble plagues many a canine owner.

I need to confess, i’ve been to a few houses wherein i have had a blood letting due to the fact the canine came in too rough for a treat!

This is totally unacceptable.

What if an infant was holding an hotdog and wandering around the residence?

Can you consider the horrors and the consequences?

The canine hurts the kid, just due to the fact that he desired the meals, the child incurs a bite and a scar and the dog loses his essence…  I think that is the beginning of deplorable conditions for each the dog and the kid.

If your canine is possessive or you’re frightened of being bitten badly, you can stop your dog from snatching by searching for the help of a veterinary behaviourist.  Nothing is worth carrying the scar of being bitten badly by your canine! But, most effectively you can make that educated selection primarily based on your reviews!

The Trick

If my dog wants to grab the treat in my hand; I cover the treat with my fist and lock the canine teeth out.

Don’t yell!

Don’t smack!

Don’t backhand!

Don’t yank or kick!

Aggression is often met with aggression.

The best way to stop your dog from snatching is to teach your canine that being “snatchy” equals no treat.

Again, most dogs won’t grow to be indignant and bite (if they’re no longer without a doubt possessive) they just become harassed and pissed off.

In any case, while a dog snaps for a treat, possibilities are the human equivalent of the reaction is that the person tosses or screams and lets go of the treat; consequently worthwhile snatchy behaviour.

Dogs analyze very quickly, in the event that if they swoop in with their teeth, they can get what they want.

This is why I cover the treat with my fist.

Impulse management

Impulse management is basically controlling your impulse to do something that is not socially ideal.

Additionally, you need to discover ways to control dog impulse.

They can’t react behaviorally (chasing, barking, different terrible behaviors) whenever they like.

They ought to learn how to listen and manipulate their impulses until they’re given the okay!

1st project on how to stop your dog from snatching

I take advantage of a treat that I realize my canine wishes to have.

As soon as he lunges in the direction of it; I encapsulate it into my fist.

I wait until he gives me the perfect behaviour (sit down, respectful eye contact)after which I mark that behaviour and give the canine a reward.

I say “a reward” because I don’t usually need him to assume that he will get precisely what we are training with!  Occasionally he’ll get some thing higher and on occasion he’ll get extra quantity however now not the identical thing we’re working with at that time.

Once more, I don’t want my dog to assume this is only a game of who’s quicker to the reward.

I need to stop my dog from snatching….

I want to educate my canine that just due to the fact it is in my hand, and he wishes it, doesn’t suggest he can bully me or lunge for it!

Paradoxically, I additionally don’t want to need to yell ‘go away’ at it!

However, I need to control dog impulse from snatching something without requiring a command.

I want his default to be sitting and searching at me for approval or disapproval.

Then, I up the Ante.

Every now and then dogs think that if a treat is raised above the toes a little bit, it becomes theirs.

Attempt it.

Place a treat on your hand and then position your hand on the floor.

Probabilities are as soon as it is underneath about 3 ft, the canine thinks it belongs to him.

If it hits the floor…. Then the probabilities are even better that the canine claims ownership.

But, the last thing I want my canine to analyze is that what hits the floor is his!

After all, haven’t you ever in any way opened a pill bottle and had the contents spill at the floor?

I want my canine to assume twice if something hits the ground.

I want him to wait to be advised he can “take” whatever it is; rather than simply pouncing out on it.


Once my dog understands that he isn’t always to snatch things out of my hand; I pass the food or toy or some thing he favoured to the floor without removing my hand.

At the same time as you are teaching, preserve a surprise treat to keep awful conduct from going on.

From There

Now that your canine has extra control of himself, it is time to take this as far as possible.

I drop a treat and allow it soar.

Once more, most puppies will provide chase and i must block it with my foot.

But, in the event that they have been successful up till now, they may quickly remember what you need and begin displaying you excellent conduct.

One Rule On how to stop Your dog from Snatching

My best rule for this unique part of impulse management is that I hardly ever, allow my dog to devour a treat that drops to the ground.

I want him to understand that he can be rewarded from my hand, but that he’s going to not be rewarded for chasing or lunging on the treat.

This lessens has risk of turning into that sport of who is quicker to the treat.

Due to the fact, I for one drop such things as drugs, chocolate, grapes, raisins and other poisonous stuffs that I don’t want my dog to eat!

His life just may also rely on it a few day!


Train Your Dog To Stay


Training Your dog To stay For Hours as if you Had a “Magic” Pause Button.

People always deceive themselves by teaching their dog the ordinary STAY command.

Just because we want our dogs to listen or be obedient to us, we take our puppies to dog training classes, or we strive to teach our puppies at home to stay, on a restricted basis, at the same time with leash on; however how many people take this command severely?

Regrettably, not many get the wanted result from years of dog training classes. This is perhaps because you don’t recognize how complicated you could make your stay command and how essential it could be in your relationship with your dog.

Advanced Obedience and Training Your Dog to STAY

A lot of you don’t know there are different forms of advanced ways in training your dog to STAY.

Delayed Down STAYS

Many people might find this merciless, callous or wicked, but it is a very good practice and training for your dog.  This is mostly used to train service Dogs for the disabled people.

Service dogs frequently spend hours lying beneath their owner’s table or their office while they are engrossed in their works. Those down STAYS are less structured, as an instance you anticipate that your dog will change positions, bite on a bone and get relaxed whereas many people suppose the dog cannot move from their positions.

In true picture, you don’t need a strict down stay such that your dog can’t move or change positions or can’t do other activities at all.

Down stays are essential for times when you want your dog to lay still while you eat or have a friend at your place maybe for meals or just having fun.

Stay command is very essential. For instance when you see that your dog is facing a barrier or moving towards danger and you are busy, you use the stay command to keep it off or delay it till you are done

However, you might feel less concerned about this kind of control over your dog. Taking me for instance, I have a dog which I have trained to STAY. I am very confident that I can open the store, room, kitchen or even my car doors and my dog won’t run into it. This kind of control is what we all seek for when we spend our time and money at dog obedience centres.

How can I Totally control My Dog

Change your attitude

When training your do to stay, you don’t just let your fly through the doors immediately they are opened. See your doors as very dangerous barriers that your dog should never cross without you. Additionally, your dog chain is not there for beauty or fancy, it is a tool for controlling it too. Use the leash to teach your dog to wait until it is told to do so.

When training your dog to stay in the Car, tighten the chain to the passenger’s seat to restrict your dog movement whenever the door is open. The fastened leash serves as a restrainer from it running outside whenever the car is opened.

If I’m running with a new or rambunctious dog in the car, I close a leash within the passenger or other car door to keep my dog from running out on his own.

When at home, it is very vital not to allow him fly through the doorway… irrespective of how excited he is to move. When the dog tries to jump you use the leash on it preventing it from moving.

A leash offers me ability to  manipulate and prevents the dog from absolutely getting outside by giving any instance.


Train Your Dog Dock Diving

Teaching Your Dog The Chase method For Dock Diving

If by chance, you have ever watched dogs that do dock diving on ESPN for the outstanding Dog competition or other dock diving shows, you will be amazed at how most of the dog are leaping up and aiming to catch their toys in midair.

They make it appear simple, but in reality it isn’t as easy as it appears.

Dog owners should calculate the speed of their dog, running down a forty foot dock and timing the toy perfectly; all whilst throwing the toy in the right manner with respective height and distance so that their dog can catch it within the air.

The Joy derived by the dog from catching the toy in its mouth is typically what drives the dog jump higher.  Only a few puppies can soar over 20 feets if they are trained with this method. Most times they’re just engaging in throw and catch technique which adds nothing to the jump power need with the bosses.

How do you start to train your dog dock diving

The dog must be very confident jumping in water. If he is not absolutely confident, he cannot multitask by means of trusting his feet to carry him to the edge and over the water even as he is and jumping for his toy.

Reflect on your personal terms. Race to the end of a dock all at the same time as you are looking up and trying to catch something while looking down at your feet.  At the start, it might be nearly impossible, until you learn to accept that the  water is beneath you,

Ground Work is Essential

When you train your dog dock diving, you need to first train your dog to jump up and catch a toy.

It is particularly silly to expect our dog to have enough jump power to jump off the ground and  consider his capability to leap, capture and fall, only if he’s confident enough.

To gain self-confidence you should train your dog to catch from the ground.

I do not use a Frisbee for dock diving. I believe that Frisbees are too hard to throw as it should be in high wind; and also you don’t need the Frisbee to glide out of the protection of the pool!

Clearly you ought to avoid hard toy that might hurt your dog when gnawed midair.  Ache or discomfort will surely negatively affect your dog’s potential to jump higher distances.

I start with my dog on a sitting stay about 4-6 feets away, reach back and point toy at my canine’s nose, release and barely toss the toy up inside the air and out right before his nose.

When you train your dog dock diving, be cautious to throw the toy above your shoulders.  Once more, even in case you throw too far over the pool, the dog could be affected.  He may be capable of jumping incredibly high, but this is risky as he might lands hard in the pool which could hurt him badly.
