Training and Playing with you Furry Friend?

Our Portable Woven Linen Tug Toy is your answer!

Dogs are a gift to mankind as they are one of the most loyal and adorable creatures. Whether it be a cute little Pomeranian or a beautiful Golden Labrador, the wagging tails and puppy dog eyes can make even the hardest of hearts melt.  One of the best things about having dogs as pets is the fact that they don’t ask for much more than love and affection.

However, dogs are very different from humans and it is important to socialize and train dogs to make them adapt to our part of the world. And how exactly you can go about this has been explained further.

The Importance of Training Dogs

 The importance of training dogs cannot be stressed enough as dogs may be friendly creatures but they also need to know what behavior is right and wrong. It is a good idea to train your puppies right from an early age, say about 3-17 weeks when they can learn things faster and can socialize better with other animals.

 Ideally, one should train their dog via positive reinforcement. This means that you encourage rightful behavior in your dog by rewarding the actions that you think are right and seem fit. For instance, if you do not want your dog to jump at guests as they enter, then you need to ignore them when they start jumping on them and if they sit and greet the guest then reward them with a treat. This will help the dog understand that this is the right kind of behavior for them.

 It is important to note that you must not shout or hit the dog to show them what is right. This may make the dog think that this behavior is right as you are giving them some form of attention for it. It is best to just ignore the dog so that they know that what they are doing is wrong.

 Positive reinforcement training not only makes the dog well-equipped as pets but it also strengthens the bond between the owner and the dog. It encourages a more positive bonding between the two, built on love and trust, rather than on fear and force. This will ensure a healthy relationship between you and your dog and make them better pets.

The Features of Training a Dog

 There are lots of factors to consider while training your dog. You need to know the dog’s breed, what you want from the dog specifically and what are the dog’s own habits and limitations. Most people tend to not understand factors like age, breed, sensitivity, environment, and temperament. But these are all very important to know before you begin their training.

 There are two kinds of training: one is called positive reinforcement that has already been explained above. And the other type is alpha dog training.

 Positive reinforcement makes use of techniques like treats, toys, games, clickers, verbal cues and hand signals to correct bad habits. The idea is to let the dog realize with these positive reinforcements that this is the right thing to do in these circumstances. While this is a good way of training your dog, it is also important that you don’t misuse this step or else the dog may end up doing whatever it likes. If you see the dog chasing the mailman and you tell them, “Good dog, no need to bark”, they will not understand the point as the dog will see this as attention and will probably keep barking at the mailman. Rather you need to show them that is wrong to bark at the mailman by completely ignoring the dog’s behavior. It is important to use this training method properly to create a strong bond with the dog but at the same time to also keep their habits in check.

 This method might take some time but it is highly effective in the long run and has been known to train even the toughest of dog breeds.

 In the other approach, the alpha dog training method, one uses a bit of force and tools to train the dog. Some tools that are used in this method include electronic collars, prong collars and choke chains.

 If you would rather train by hand than using any tools, there are other methods like alpha rolls where you pin the dog to the floor or squeeze their hand lightly. You can also keep doing something to the dog that it doesn’t like so that it understands that this behavior is wrong.

 This approach is a bit physical in nature and may instill fear in the pet. But it depends on how you enforce it. If you are not too violent or physical with the dog and merely train him in the right manner, it could work faster and better than the positive reinforcement. However, the best solution is to use both the methods correctly, in moderation and by mixing the two when required.

 This is especially true, if say, you want to take the dog out for hunting. In such circumstances, it is better to use both a little bit of forceful action as well as positive treats to make the dog behave in the correct manner towards you and other humans as well as other animals. Do not let them chase squirrels and other animals but make them keep their eye on the target and then later treat them when they do the right thing.

 A mixture of these two training methods will help keep in check unruly behavior like stealing food, jumping on people, run after cats and other animals, knocking over animals, people, and things and pulling the leash.
