Dog training tips




Here are some good tips from Professional veterinarian:

The puppy should be enclosed in a small area (meter by meter will be sufficient). The compound should be placed in the center of the house (eg in the living room) so as not to create social isolation, which can lead to behavioral problems later on.     In the compound, the dog must be accommodated in a resting place (mattress or better), as far as possible from the exit gate of the compound. The dog's water vessel should be placed outside the flying cabin and the food should be sprinkled on the dog's place where the dog is kept, so that he will not relieve himself.

In the rest of the complex three layers of newspapers should be laid.     When the puppy has defecated on the newspapers, throw the first layer of newspapers and the third layer.

The second layer with the spongy smell of urine should be placed close to the compound opening, as the first layer of the new newspaper cluster. The puppy will prefer to take care of the newspaper that smells.     If the puppy has met the needs in the compound a short while ago, or immediately after he has had needs outside, he may be allowed to walk around the house under supervision for about 20 minutes and then take him out again or return him to the area for further emptying.

  • As a trainer, I talk a lot about the critical socialization period in puppies under the age of 4 month. So if you get your puppy over the age of 4 month, or if your puppy did not meet all their socialization needs before the age of 4 months, does that mean that you lost your opportunity to have a well behaved dog? The answer is no. Dogs continue learning throughout their lives, the only difference is the speed in which they're receiving and processing lessons. With the right techniques, you can shape a dog's behavior as well and change the dog's demeanor well into adulthood. Your dog's demeanor doesn't "solidify" until around the age of 2 - 3 year old. This means that you can adopt a dog in the juvenile period and sill be able to improve it's confidence and behavior. It also means that if you only put in training and socialization while your puppy is under 4 months of age, it's very likely that your dogs behavior will change as your dog approaches adolescence. In order to ensure that you maintain wanted behavior as your dog ages you must continue socializing and training. Dogs in the juvenile period should have the opportunity to play with other dogs, meet new people and experience new places. As is in the critical socialization stage, socialization is not simple exposure. Dogs are learning every minute that they are awake. If they have an uncomfortable experience, they may be learning that they probably shouldn't do what ever that was again. I personally hate dog parks. Yes, I want my juvenile dog to play with other dogs, but I want that play to be appropriate and with dogs that I know are tolerant and have good communication. There is no way knowing what you're going to get in a public dog park. I have seen too many dogs that shouldn't be interacting with other dogs at public dog parks. Instead of going to public dog parks consider coming to a Juvenile Jubilee at our facility. At this social we will be concentrating on appropriate dog play, understanding behavior and stress and maintaining the value of each owner. Other alternatives to dog parks are off leash hikes. You can meet other dogs on a hike and allow for some short interaction before moving again. You may also become a member of the Humane Society of Silicon Valley dog park. This park is better because it's for members only and all members must attend a behavior seminar organized by Cecilia Sternzon, CPDT-KA. Even tho the HSSV park is still a fenced dog park, it has much more educated patrons than the local public park. Consider that your dog is learning from every interaction they have with dogs, people and places. Be sure that they are learning from experiences that will shape their demeanor and behavior for the better.
  • Your puppy is fully potty trained and come to you most of the time when he's called. She is sweet and pays attention when you need her to. So you should give them more freedom, right? NO! Your dog is very smart, at this stage they are building confidence and figuring out the rules of the house. They are learning what they can get away with and what is not allowed. At this stage you should spend lots of time with your dog reinforcing wanted behaviors. Working on impulse control and recall. Your dog will soon become a teenager and all rules and lessons will fly out the window. During adolescence you will have to teach everything your have taught your dog over again. The more you work with your dog before that time period, the easier adolescence will be. Just because your dog is easy now, doesn't mean they'll stay that way. Put in extra time to reinforce your foundation. You will be very happy you did as your dog transitions to adulthood.
