Whether it is for basic obedience or tricks and manners training, teaching your dog some discipline allows you to understand and better bond with him/her. However, dog training can be tough for beginners. So, Sup’s Peace Makers gives you this list of tips on how to get your dog to listen to you:
- Be patient
Different dogs learn tricks at different paces. Your Boerboel dog in Texas may not learn as fast as a labrador, but they both are teachable and very adorable. Give your dog a couple of weeks to simmer in the lesson.
- Be consistent
Like any trained behavior, be consistent with what you teach. Remember to use the same commands and cues so that your dog doesn’t get confused.
- Adopt realistic expectations
Training your dog takes time. So, wait for several days or weeks to complete his/her training.
- Reward your dog for good behavior through food treats.
