Basic Dog Obedience Training
Basic dog obedience training is one of the keys to a well-behaved dog. It also helps guardian and dog to develop a relationship where the dog accepts the guardian as the one in charge. Done correctly, this training will build a dog's desire to serve and please its guardians.
It is possible to train your dog all of the basic obedience commands by yourself. Alternatively, you can look for a class which teaches dog obedience; and enroll yourself and your dog, in the class. Either way, this training is accomplished through repetition, practice, and consistency. To get you started on basic dog obedience training, follow the links below to get free dog training tips.
Basic dog obedience training always involves leash training;
most importantly training your dog to walk nicely on a loose leash. Dogs that pull on a leash are sending a message that they believe that they are in charge. Training your dog to walk correctly on a leash helps your dog to know that you are in charge by making it understand that you control the speed and direction of the walk.
The best way to train your dog is to use positive reinforcement. Positive reinforcement training involves giving the dog an immediate positive consequence when it does what you have asked it to do. The most popular form of positive reinforcement training is called "clicker training." In clicker training, something that the dog likes (usually food) is paired with the sound of a clicker. The clicker is then clikced whenever the dog does what it is supposed to do.
