    Why Labrador Dog Training Sometimes Doesn't Work!

     

    Training a dog is neither easy nor is it 100% guaranteed. This is because there are certain breeds of dogs that do not and will not get trained, even if you leave them in the care of the best trainers in the world. So, if you come across a trainer who brags that he can train any dog given to him, donít believe him. Or perhaps he says it because he has never been given a challenging and difficult dog to train or he just doesnít handle difficult cases. But usually there are certain common reasons why this happens. Here are some of them:

    Owners like you donít make time to train their dogs:

     If you as an owner donít think it necessary to carve time out to train your dog, itís never going to happen. Often, owners are just too lazy or socially preoccupied to even stop to think how important this activity of training their pet is. My advice to you, therefore, is to take time off from watching TV, playing video games, surfing the web, talking on the phone, listening to music, reading, playing a sport or just relaxing and include training your dog into your schedule.

    Youíre too busy at work and travel a lot too:

     If your work is so demanding that it causes you to travel a lot, why take on the responsibility of a dog? And if you must have a dog and if you did hand him over to a trainer to train and return to you, even then you need to take time out to find out how heís faring with the trainer. And you also need to ask the trainer how to treat your dog once heís back with you.

    Fix the dog and hand him back:

     If this is your attitude towards your dog, then you donít deserve to own one. Remember that here weíre discussing owning and looking after a dog, not a car or a lifeless gadget. So, put your heart where your money is and show a genuine feeling for the animal.

    You treat your pet like your own baby:

    You can treat your dog like your baby, but itís still wiser to draw the line somewhere and realize that finally they are still dogs. You may have brought home a pedigree, but where are his manners? You might brag to the world that youíve brought home a champ and a pedigree. But dogs will be dogs and if untrained, will resort to pulling, jumping, barking, growling, or attacking people and other dogs. If this is the behavior your dog comes up with, then no one is going to be impressed by his proud lineage. So, think about training him.

    You use old and wrong instructional tools:

    You refuse to see the harm choke chains, pinch collars, Haltis, gentle leaders, or clickers can do to your pet. And then, youíre not willing to use anything different and better either.

    You couldnít handle this big dog:

    As a prospective owner, you want a big and tough dog, but having got one, you now realize that you just canít handle one physically, especially if you are elderly, suffer from arthritis, tendonitis, bad backs, bad shoulders or are handicapped. You need to stick to smaller or medium size breeds that you can always control.

    You ignore the warning signs:

    When your dog shows signs of not learning or aggression, you ignore it thinking itís a passing phase. But bad habits donít go away all by themselves so donít expect your dogís growling, snapping, chasing, aggression toward strangers, attacking other dogs or any other aggressive behavior to go away on its own. You canít expect your kid to do a good job of training your dog: Just because you gift your smart kid with a pet of his choice doesnít mean he can be relied upon to train him well. This is because he doesnít know how to train him, so it ends up being your responsibility, your dedication and your time. And then there are vet bills, lack of training, grooming, cleaning, walking and destructiveness to counter. Can your kid handle that?

    You think you got yourself a defective dog:

    Just because your earlier dogs werenít temperamentally like this one or didnít give you as much trouble, doesnít mean this one is defective. Frankly, you shouldnít keep making comparisons between earlier and present dogs, nor should you change this one just because he displays behavioral aberrations. Itís just that your dog needs training, which you perhaps donít consider important.

    You blame it all on the weather:

    The weather wasnít right for training your dog so you couldnít take him out. Or perhaps it was such beautiful weather that it was just right for a spin with your friends. But the weather is never right for taking your dog out training, right? So, from the above reasons, you do realize that your attitude toward your dog is instrumental in him being well trained or not. Now, his future is in your hands.
