Pet Dog Training Courses – Which Are The Finest?

When I got my Border Collie mix Sam from the local Humane Society, he had very few problems, which is a godsend for a rescued dog. In fact, when I inquired about Sam through a phone call, the people at the Humane Society said he was basically the perfect dog. They informed me that the only problem he had was jumping up on people. I thought, “that will be easy to solve”.

Dogs live very much in the ‘now’, they react to the ‘now’, yes, they carry past experiences and baggage similar to us, however, their REactions are in the ‘now’. That’s why does my dog bark at other dogs you can’t expect them to know that, she’s a really good pack leader sometimes but, has bad days and isn’t so good on other days… they just don’t understand this concept of inconsistency, they will simply give you the reaction you deserve or warrant in any given moment. Like us, they do carry triggers created in the past, but, and it’s a big BUT, unlike us, their reactions can very much be controlled by the way their pack leader reacts in the ‘now’.

Step number one. Rule out pain or health problem.You can do this by taking a closer look at your dog. Examine his body for any abrasion or splinter. Check his vital signs. See if he is not limping when he’s walking. Do you know that thyroid problem as well as diabetes has similar symptoms with dog depression? If he’s not suffering from any of these, he might be really suffering from depression.

Control: Take control of the household and let your dog know that you are the alpha leader. As an owner, you will learn about how to Stop dog from barking to assert your dominance and make him follow you. Once you will be able to do this, you will easily succeed at good dog obedience training.

You can also try a high jet of water from a high powered water gun or hose connection. Remember to always give the clear, loud verbal command as described above, then if they continue give them the last verbal command and wet them.

Over time, you will progress to getting him to DO things, in order to drive you to give him treats. A dog can be trained without ever having to be touched! Simply wait for a behaviour to be offered, perhaps a play-bow or a Sit, or eventually a bump of your treat-filled hand with his nose. Then say “YES!” enthusiastically the instant it happens (or use a clicker to mark it) and toss a great treat…or a piece of his dinner. You can then pair a command to the action, and start to ask the dog to perform it in order to get the treat. I’ve had rescue reactive dogs I couldn’t walk up and touch, who would Sit, Gimme Five, or otherwise interact with me in order to solicit a treat. This is *two way communication*, and it’s important. Even coming up close to ask for food can be a triumph for a fearful dog.

Other opportunities available for going to a training class is that your instructor can correct problems that he can see you make. Without an instructor around, it will may take longer to realize you are even making a mistake.

For example, if you are changing puppy over from dry food to wet food, swap one spoonful on day one, two spoonfuls on day two and so on till they are completely swapped over to their new diet. I know it is a painfully slow process – but it’s so much better for puppy. Besides, puppy diarrhoea is no fun at all – you really do not want to go down that road!

The scene in a dog obedience school is just like life. In life there is a lot of noise, so much things going on, etc. In these classrooms there is a lot of noise to show them that they must learn no matter what the scenario is. It really teaches them to concentrate fully, and since they have been taught all aspects of obedience in this type of situation then they will definitely become well trained.
