Thinking of having a dog? If so, you must have thought about how to train your dog. Puppy or dog training should begin immediately after taking them home.
You can train your dog yourself, or you can hire a professional dog trainer. Here I will tell you some of the essential training tips that you can use to train your dog.
Give your dog a name
Give your puppy a name; it will help you in training. You can also change the name if you bought an adult dog. Always choose a short name for your dog.
Understand your dog's body language
Note that your dog does not know English, he cannot tell you what he wants and what is wrong with him, but he can show you his body language. Learning your dog body language is the best way to start training.
Make some house rules
When you take your dog home, establish some house rules, such as where your dog can go and what places are prohibited. Is he allowed to jump on chairs and beds or not?
Housetrain your dog
Start house training from an early age; take your dog out for elimination in the morning and at night. You can also paper train or crate train your dog.
Teach basic commands
Teach your dog basic obedience commands like "Come," "Sit," "Stay," and "Heel." You can use treats and praises to train. If your dog follows your orders, reward him with treats.
Always be patient, it is your dog, not a human being. It takes time to train a dog. Don't rush the process, stay positive, and never punish your dog. It will affect your relationship with your dog.
I hope these training tips can help you train your dog.
