    Positive Reinforcement Rules!

    The first thing to keep in mind when you begin weeding through dog training advice is to keep it positive. Any instruction that advocates intimidating your pet or disciplining him through painful means will probably not be effective. A better approach is positive reinforcement with your pet that will offer rewards for the correct behavior rather than punishment for disobedience. Positive reinforcement can come in the form of praise, treats, or playtime with you, or a combination of the three. As you offer your positive reinforcement, keep in mind that lavishing praise on your pet over and over is unnecessary during training session, and may serve to distract your dog from the task at hand. A good piece of dog training advice is to keep your praise short and sweet, and limit treats to a single biscuit. This will keep your dog motivated and focused during training sessions.

    Bring your Patience

    The most important factor that you can bring to your training sessions with your puppy is patience. Keep in mind that your dog will be anxious to please you, and will catch on to your instruction much more quickly if you offer commands in a firm, friendly tone, and keep your temperament cool and controlled throughout. Set aside about fifteen minutes each day to work with your young dog, and try to keep all distractions at bay during this time. Remember that your training times should be a fun experience for you and your pet, and a chance for the two of you to bond and get to know one another better. The benefits that you will reap from following this dog training advice will be very satisfying and long-lasting indeed. Dogs make a wonderful addition to the family, once they are properly trained. Follow good dog training advice to make this member of your family a welcome addition.
