Dog Training Do’s and Don’ts

Don’t let your dog meet unfamiliar dogs nose to nose on a walk.  You can not assume that all dogs will like your dog.

When training, some dogs may appear nervous and uncomfortable.  This can be due to letting go of old habits and coping with the new requirements being asked of them.  Don’t misinterpret their behavior.

Most new dogs whether they are puppies or a new rescue are given way too much freedom in the beginning of the relationship. Dogs need to settle in.  In the case of a dog that is not housebroken their freedom must be restricted.

When dogs are nervous they may tremble and do a lot of lip licking.  Keep your face out of a dogs face if they appear nervous or fearful.

Utilize a crate for your young dog or rescue.  Dogs are den animals and will begin to feel a since of security in a crate.  You can not complain that your dog chewed up your favorite shoes if you left them free to roam.

If your have an anxious insecure dog don’t coddle them.  Rules, Structure and Guidance.

Dog training tips

Don’t stay home with your new puppy or rescue for an extended period of time.  Get them used to being left from time to time. You’ll be happy you did when it is time to go back to work.

Don’t over use the word NO, your dog may think it is an extension of their name. Give unwanted behaviors specific names such as quiet, off, no biting, etc.

The best training tool for your dog you probably already own.  It’s a leash!  Having access to your dog will greatly improve your training success.

Puppies can be a lot of work!  They do best with structure, routine and a schedule.  Pay attention to their eating and potty habits.  You will begin to notice their routine soon.

Rescuing a dog is a good thing.  Be mindful if the dog you are bringing home is not a puppy.  Many friendly dogs have no experience with the high energy of children and may react.
