 A voice against abusive training and high expectation from your dog… 

Dog training is an art and science both. It is important to understand your dog before you can effectively formulate the training program for him. Most owners have been noticed to expect what their fur kids can actually perform. It is to be remembered that training a do is actually teaching him something against his natural or instinctive behavior. Hence it is a time consuming process, and not a magic. Expecting beyond reality is a foolish act. The eight best things to be kept in the forefront of your mind while training a dog are as follows:

  • Listening to your pup
  • Show generosity with affection towards him
  • Understanding correctly: what he likes
  • Making him understand how he can make you happy
  • Consistency is the best policy
  • You will get back what you reinforce. Reinforce what you want
  • Reward him for correct action; don't bribe him or doing it correctly
  • Training should be a fun session

Training your dog to teach him human behavior takes time. Without a realistic expectation you are surely going to end up with zero result and uselessly investing time, energy and money. Along side it is more than important that you should have a realistic idea about how much time it may take to develop the behaviors that you actually desire. This requires repetitions and effective training program professionally formulated based on scientific understanding of their performance ability. Training a dog primarily involves steps to helping him to respond in the right way in varied situations and environmental set up. Training, secondly, is helping your dog to focus on what he is supposed to pay attention on without ignoring the detracting elements.

How efficiently your dog learns and can perform depend solely on how effectively your straining programs are formulated and what steps you follow to teach your dog the tricks you want him to learn. Put and end to abusive training methods. Hitting and yelling is only going to bring in more wrinkle in your life. These are NO solutions.

Do not expect to resolve all behavioral issues with simple obedience training
Simple obedience training will fail to resolve certain behavioral issues, for instance, over aggression, separation anxiety, etc. while certain obnoxious behaviors like jumping, chewing etc. can be effective addressed in a short spell of time. It is, hence, suggested to understand obedience training sessions are just the beginning, and not the end. Too much expectation from simple obedience training is a fruitless mission.
Please remember… dogs are not robots; they have brains that are not as strong as us, humans. No matter how much endeavor you put in training your dog, he will never become a 100% perfect.
