Many believe that training dogs is difficult. Some also believe that certain canines are just not trainable. Both of these beliefs are incorrect. The truth is that all dogs can be trained, and dog training does not have to be a hard work. Training dogs can be fun. It’s the case that some breeds are more suited to training than others. However, what we do not like, but, is the idea that some breeds aren’t able to be trained – since it isn’t true. What we’re going to look at is the essential things to take care of to train your dog in the right direction.
Measurement of success using parameters
You’ll be judged to have completed the correct dog training in the event that you can transmit the fundamental dog’s skills to your dog in a reasonable amount of time.
Additionally, you’ll be considered to have done the right thing in training your dog when you are able to master the fundamental dog’s skills in a lasting manner. That is that in other words, that you won’t be seen as having achieved a high degree of success in educating your dog if it does not remember the lessons taught in a single day.
So, in an eloquent way, the factors by which the effectiveness of the training of dogs are:
Duration of time spent in teaching the important skills to the dog.
The habits that are taught to the dog.
How long do the techniques are retained by dogs.
Of of course, you should consider slow in passing particular skills onto your dog, or if you find it difficult to impart certain abilities to the dog or if the dog continues to forget the techniques that you have taught him or her this doesn’t mean that you’re not doing your job correctly. Keep in mind that there are 2 aspects that are at work in this case. The first is your expertise, ability and commitment as dog trainer. The second are your pet’s inherent talent to learn – in the context of a culture that some breeds of dogs appear to grasp things more quickly than other breeds.
The early initiation of training is a crucial element to success in training of dogs
Simply stated, there are abilities that you are able to teach to your dog when they are young. That means that the widely accepted belief that puppies younger than six months old should not be trained is totally incorrect. Actually, there are a few skills that are difficult to teach dogs older that six months. It’s worth noting that, unlike us the dogs are (in certain ways) very evolved animals the process of learning life skills starts from the time they’re born. This is the reason puppies who lose their mother when he is just three months old age might be able to live in the wild but it is extremely difficult for a human infant who lost their mother at the same time to be able to survive on his own in the same situation.
The best time to begin training for a dog is when the dog is learning life skills. This will ensure that the abilities you wish to transfer to them can be incorporated alongside the essential life skills for dogs. In this way, the essential behaviours will become an integral part of the dog’s character. They’ll be more into the dog’s brain. That’s not to say that older dogs aren’t trained. However, you’ll find it more difficult (and less enjoyment) working with an older dog.
Then it becomes clear that some of those who are left with perceptions that dogs aren’t capable of training are those who try training their dogs in certain areas way too late in their dog’s life. When dogs do not choose these capabilities, they are termed as boneheads. It’s not the fault of the dog that they’re unable to recognize the abilities and it is the trainer’s fault that they didn’t started training earlier.
Use of reward systems and corrections is a crucial element to success when training dogs.
As we get into the ins and outs about dog behavior training it becomes apparent that a variety of skills and behavior are only transmitted and ingrained into dogs through the correct application of rewards and corrections.
The greatest reward you could give your dog is its affection. And conversely, the biggest correction/punishment you can give to a dog is deprivation of attention.
If you’re trying to make your dog choose a particular behavior, you should practice (or more precisely, demonstrate) the behavior to them or her and then reward them (with the attention of course) for the behavior that is consistent with it while also punishing the dog (with the deprivation of attention) in the event that they fail to act in a manner that is consistent with. Simply looking at your dog’s affections is a means of rewarding the dog with the attention. Doing a pet for them is another type of attention reward. Giving praise to the dog verbally is another method to reward him or her with love. It is true that the dog might not comprehend the meaning behind the words, however they can feel the emotion behind the words. Dogs appear to have this ability.
If your pet enjoyed your focus when doing something well, and you are unable to give them of that attention at the point that the dog starts to do something wrong, the dog immediately notices the reaction and draws the connection between his behavior and the lack of your attention. The dog is likely to rectify the problem to get back your interest. These techniques work best for dogs that you are trying to train is young.
What you mustn’t do, however, is to hit the dog as a form of punishment/correction: the simple reason being that the dog won’t understand that being hit is a form of ‘punishment.’ Instead, the dog who is hit is likely to think that you’re simply being violent towards the dog. If the dog keeps moving around like chasing the street or destroying the neighbors’ property, you’re better off finding ways to control the dog’s movements, instead of hitting him.
The importance of patience is successful training of dogs
You will not be successful with dog training unless you’re and patient. Keep in mind that it can take dogs time to process concepts that appear easy for us to comprehend. There are some who believe that there is the notion that you’ll only succeed with dog obedience if are a ‘tough.’ Contrary to what they say this is among the areas where kindness and the “soft approach’ are more effective than the more arduous Spartan method of training.
Persistence is the most important factor to successful training of dogs
A close relationship to patience (as the key ingredient to success for dog trainers) is perseverance. You’ll never be a successful dog trainer when you quit too quickly for example, when you demonstrate an desired behavior to a dog, only to quit if the dog does not respond immediately. The truth is that you need to show a desired behavior the dog many times while providing the appropriate reinforcements until the dog is able to know what is expected from him or her.
Consistency is an essential element to the success of training dogs
This is a method of training in which, for instance after you have chosen a particular type of reward (reward or punishment) it is important to implement it consistently so that your dog who is in training will understand the meaning behind it. One of the most damaging mistakes you can make in the process of training your dog is to use unclear signals. If the dog is confused, it is extremely difficult to train it.
