There are many aspects to look into when trying to train a pet and the following are some of the area to consider and how to go about doing so.
Before deciding on what equipment to use to train the dog, the owner must first identify the purpose of the training and the end goal desired. There are a lot of issues that contribute to a training session and having a clear goal in mind will help both the dog and the owner to work together to achieve the goal.
Teaching a dog to respond to certain commands in a very specific way requires communicating with the animal on a level that can easily be understood. The dog’s response to the commands will indicate the understanding of the command given and if the desired outcome is evident then the command is considered understood. Therefore, the owner should ideally take the time of identify a few simple commands and put them into practice in a simple and nonthreatening way.
Once a dog has successfully learned all the basic commands, there may be an interest on the part of the owner to venture further into some advanced commands for the dog. These more advanced commands may be an extension of the present basic ones or something totally new. However, in most cases they are just an extension of commands already well versed for both dog and owner.
Although it seems very cruel to expect an animal to, “hold it”, where humans can just look for a toilet, it will help to the animal to introduce some sort of regimen. This will help to ease the burden to having a stressed out pet and owner.
Research has proven, in many areas of a dog responsive behaviour, that rewarding the dog is far more productive than punishing it. This is very conclusive and most dog owners now choose rewards over punishments based on the same evident results.
In order to be able to enjoy a good and unstrained connection between dog and owner, there has to be some training sessions conducted. There are several reasons as to why dog training is important and actually an essential part of having a dog as a pet.
