A dog is a man’s best friend. This is something that I truly believed in when I first got my pet husky, Alpha, for my 16th birthday.

A well-trained dog will be a great companion for everybody in the family regardless of young kids or older adults.

However, this was not always the case as Alpha wreak havoc in the household in the first 2 months of his arrival.

On this webpage, I would like to share with you a couple of things on dog training tips that will make your pet more valuable to all the members of your household. Here are some things that I would like to share with you about training your dog.

First off, in order for you to successfully train your dog, there are some basics in which you must understand. Obedience commands are essential for laying down a strong groundwork in the communication between you and your dog as it creates a common language that both of you understand. However, most new dog owners that I had seen never really establish this kind of communication and very often, it results in a disobedient pet.

Now, there are various styles of training that you can do with your dog, but I want to stick with the basics so that it does not get too complicated for your understanding.

There are some important basics you need to learn to successfully train your dog before we start. Obedience commands are important for laying a foundation in communicating between you and your dog, it creates a common language that you and your dog understand.

To many new dog owners never really establish this kind of communication, and end up struggling with a disobedient dog as a result. There are many styles of training for your dog, but I want to stick to the basics and not get things too complicated for you.

First off, you need to know that the leash and collar is just one of the tools to help you training your dog. Many dog owners mistakenly think that leash training can replace the leader/follower relationship between the dogs and them. The point to note is that leash training can help increase the bond with the dog but it can never replace the trust that comes from you and how you treat the dog.

A great tip to faster success with your dog involves the use of positive reinforcement training to get your dog up to speed with basic commands. Simple encouragement such as petting or positive cheerful words or even giving your dog treats to eat will help them continue with their good actions.

Like I said before, there are many ways to train your dog and there is no one “fit-all” solutions for any single dog. Each individual dog behaves differently and have differing characteristics. I hope this article will encourage you to do your own research on different topics so that you can train your dog to be the best it can be.
