Dog training mistakes.

Dogs are very essential pets to human beings. Most families own dogs be it its a puppy or a mature dog. Different people prefer different types of dogs,some trained others untrained. Dog training is a tedious job and it requires an expert to do it. Training a dog from a young stage is advantageous because it will be used.

A common error that dog owners do is failing to teach their dog on what is right and what is wrong,if a dog does not learn this from a tender age,it grows up being undisciplined. For instance when feeding your dog you should teach it to remain sat and relaxed and wait for food to be served instead of jumping around. Owners tend to overlook the mistakes done by dogs just because they are puppies and this comes to cost them later. Training a young puppy is easier than a mature old dog because when they are young they learn quicker and it is easy to control them. It is of benefit when you play games with your dog for example a happy congratulatory game when it does something good since this has the effect of improving your dog’s confidence and it will always want to behave well.

Dogs are not like humans their IQ is way much lower than of a human being and this thus means that it does not process instructions as fast as man. Also,most people have been a culprit of wrong timing of what they do to the dog. For example congratulating a dog right after it has misbehaved may reinforce that habit and it becomes so difficult for it to change.

Most dog owners train their dogs but instead of being calm and happy they end up acting rogue and very rebellious and this is comes about when you are not consistent with training your dog. Consistency is key to a well behaved and calm dog,if you are unstable in your training times,the dog will not register that and it is hard for it to change. Good health for every dog is key to ensuring that it will remain calm and behave well and as such you should take it to the veterinary on several occasions for check ups so that in case it is sick it is treated. It is important that you take your dog for say some long walks so that it can stretch its muscles in case it was feeling numb.

It is paramount that you give your dog good top grade food and enough water so that it can be healthy at all times.
