Quick Teaching Tips for Dogs

Wednesday, December 4, 2013
posted by Jim Murphy

DOG TRAINEDTeaching a new dog can be a challenging experience. Here are a few tips that may help.

  • Try to find out what your dog is good at. If he likes to jump or fetch, try to incorporate that into his training.
  • Teach your dog basic obedience first. Don’t try anything too complicated. Keep it as simple as possible.
  • Find a good, healthy treat that your dog enjoys.
  • Make the training sessions fairly short. Five to ten minutes should be fine. You can do a lot of repetitions is a short amount of time.
  • Don’t work on only one trick. Mix it up and do four to eight tricks at once.
  • Keep the training fun. Don’t make it a chore. May sure that both you and your dog enjoy it.

Remember, your pets count!
