Before beginning with the training process of your dog, take the following tips in your mind.
Keep Training Short:
If you keep your training short for your puppy, he will take that training as a piece of cake. Your each command must not be more than 5 minutes.
Practice Commands At different locations:
You should not confine yourself training to certain place. It would be better if you train your dog in kitchen, living room, garden, house yard and at different parks. Besides, take your puppy along with yourself in cars to give him driving exposure.
Someone has rightly said that when you fulfill all demands of your puppy, he turns out to be greedy. It would be better if you teach him the manners of life. Besides, you must learn your puppy how to behave with people and children. When you think that your puppy is not ready for training, stop it and continue it on next day. Dogs are very sensitive in terms of behavior. They have to be treated very carefully and passionately.
Reading your puppy’s body language:
Dogs used to communicate with each through their body language. Dogs express their emotions through their mouth, face, eyes, tails and ears. However, it is of paramount importance that you understand what your dog wants and how you read his intentions.
Signs of aggression or submission
If your dog intends to show aggression, his ears will be straight. He would try to stand on his front legs apart from serious facial expressions. On the contrary, a submissive dog more or less acts like a puppy. He sits down before people and rolls his tail.
Your puppy’s tail
It is grossly known to everyone that when a puppy is wagging his tail, he may wish to be friendly with people. But, when your puppy is in aggression, he would stiff his tail straight and would not move it around.
How your dog sees you
Your dog will be focusing on your body language rather on your words. He would speedily learn what you are doing instead of what you are saying.
Understanding barking and whining
Barking is a natural habit of dogs. But it can be controlled if you train your puppy. Most of the dogs bark because they think their masters like it. Try to instill in the mind of your puppy that useless barking is not good. Train him through your hands that when to bark and why to bark. Similarly, when you ask puppy stop whining, he will take it as a compliment and get him engaged in more whining. To stop him, avoid going towards him. He would learn that you dislike it and he would naturally change his behavior.
