When you correct your dog verbally, ensure your corrections are direct and short. Don’t rant on to the dog about the thinks that he did wrong. Say no and give them a command to do the right thing. The tone of your voice should let them know you are serious about the command you are making.

Make sure your dog is up and active often. Dogs can easily get bored. A bored dog will try and find something interesting to do, and training is not usually interesting. A dog that is happy, and gets the attention that they crave, will be a better behaved and attentive dog. Get out for some long walks and runs with your dog.

You will have to repeat commands several times before your dog learns it. It’s very likely to take many repetitions of one command in order for your pup to fully understand it. Continue trying the same command and be patient, your dog will get it.

To improve the efficiency of your training routine, make sure your dog eats and poops at around the same time every day. This will help you know when you have to take your dog outside, before he ruins your carpet. This will also teach your dog “hold it” until her next trip outside.

Be patient when training your dog. A patient attitude will make the training process less stressful for the both of you. Keep in mind that they wish to please you; however, they get confused because they can’t understand your language.

When training your dog, use discretion and regard for your dog’s attention span. Remember that a dog has a short attention span and cannot focus on one thing for too long. Aim for less than 10 minutes per session.

Be sure to always grab your dog’s attention the same way. Try to use the dog’s name in the start of the command. This will get his attention, and then you can tell him what to do. Dogs that are properly trained will respond when their name is said.

Use the dog’s name as much as possible to ensure that it pays attention. Use it as often as possible when you have your puppy during the first weeks, the puppy will make the connection. Give your dog a relatively short name, preferably one that isn’t likely to be confused with other words.

Your dog will be easier to train if you are careful to avoid letting him learn bad habits to begin with. It will make your life less stressful if you are teaching the dog good habits rather than trying to change bad ones. To avoid begging at the table, avoid giving the dog food off the table to begin with.

Even if you have a particularly disobedient dog, have no fear. With patience and the correct techniques, you should be able to train your dog. Use the information here to make it easier to train your dog and get maximum results.
