When Training a Pup, Tone is Key

Tuesday, November 8, 2016

cutestpupWhen you’re trying to teach your puppy a simple command or you’re correcting bad behavior, an appropriate tone of voice will convey the message most clearly. Remember that you’re dog is not human and he doesn’t understand English. Give commands in a clear, firm voice with a tone that says that “I am your leader.” Never let sharp, edgy or frustrated tones creep into your voice. That will only confuse your little pup. He’ll know that you’re displeased but he won’t know why. Whenever your puppy responds well or behaves nicely, praise him with warm, encouraging, upbeat tones. He’ll know that you’re happy and he’ll repeat the behavior. It may take awhile but your pup will learn if you stay calm and consistent. When he does behave well, don’t forget to reward him with a dog treat!

Remember, your pets count!

Remember to vote today and to ease the stress  TURN ON THE OLDIES!

Two great stations will melt the tension away:

Edgewater Gold Radio – 50’s through the early 80’s plus great standards!

If you love the 50’s and 60’s, it’s Rehoboth Radio -beachradio 5060

Soon after all of this election anxiety is over, we’ll be launching our first all holiday station/

Look for the debut of  A Delmarva Christmas!
