Having a dog is great and all but at one point or another you’ll have to ask yourself- how am I going to implement dog training? You might think that dog training applies to only teaching tricks and “extras” like sit, stay, or come. However you’ll quickly recognize that many dogs and especially puppies need to be taught the basics, like where to go to the bathroom.
It starts when you notice your puppy chewing a bit to much, or go pee indoors or in places unwanted. It becomes a real issue when we find furniture destroyed, or discover our dog is becoming aggressive towards strangers or loved ones. It doesn’t take very long whether you’re a new or seasoned dog parent to recognize that training is a necessity. Like most things there isn’t just one way to accomplish what you want – training a dog can be done in numerous ways with numerous approaches.
Dog Training: Check Out These Helpful Topics To Get Started
You Should Always Be In Dog Training Mode
Dog training is really largely about the owner and their consistency and behaviour and isn’t just once a day for 30 minutes. It’s a 24 hour, always on watch to react in a way that creates a response we want from our dog. If you do not correct your puppy when it bites you every time, for example, it will be hard to train them not to bite. We need a consistent, thought out approach to how we interact with our dogs to create a consistent response from them.
Positive Dog Training Techniques

Usually when there is a problem it can be corrected by the human understanding what we need to change for our dog to be that well behaved pooch we desire.
