Good dog training depends on both your dog and yourself.With these tricks, dog training will be a success and a positive experience for both of you:
e relaxed during training and don't make it a competition.
Set yourself and your dog a clear goal for each training session and reward him when he reaches this goal.
Use not only treats as rewards, but also praise, petting and play sessions.
Find a quiet place for the training sessions - especially at the beginning - so that your dog is not exposed to too many distractions.
Allow yourself and your dog to take breaks in between and skip training for a day if one of you is not feeling well.
How frequently is dog training necessary?
The following applies to dog training: To teach your dog something new or reinforce what it has already learnt, you should train it for around 15 minutes a day. Depending on your dog's age and attention span, you should break up this training session with breaks. Puppies in particular have a strong play instinct, so you can quickly overtax them with a session that is too long.
It takes a lot of repetitions for a dog to really internalise a command. You can therefore integrate dog training into everyday life and have your dog sit during a walk, for example. Remember to reward him in these cases too when he has performed the command correctly - be it with words, cuddles or treats.
