3 Detrimental Dog Training Mistakes You Probably Make

 


Visitors: 201

Dog training is not as easy as some people make it sound. How easy it is to train your dog depends greatly on your dog specifically. . . what breed, their background, and even their disposition. There are, however, some things that you may be doing which are completely sabotaging your dog training.

When you start training your dog, you should begin by laying down a few ground rules. Like building a house, if the house is build on a shaky foundation, the house will not be sturdy at all, and may come crashing down at some point. Most of these mistakes are along these lines.

First, shouting during training is an easy, yet counterproductive thing to do. It is easy to get caught up and frustrated with the training and your dog's progress, quickly leading to yelling. You should realize, however, that yelling actually is detrimental to your training. Your goal is to get your dog to obey to your commands in your calm voice, not your yelling voice.

Second, taking any longer than 15 minutes to train your dog during one session is something not many amateurs know about. You dog has a shorter attention span than you do, and if you try to stretch out the training session for longer than 15 minutes, the dog will just become frustrated and so will you.

Lastly, forgetting to praise and treat your dog every single time they follow a command or acts the way you want them to act. It's easy to forget to give them a treat every time, never fail, but if your dog is expecting a treat and you forget, your dog will lose confidence that they did the correct action and may be set back quite a bit.
