Dog Obedience is very important for both owner and dog. Obedience helps an owner and puppy to bond. When training your dog it is important to remember that you are not trying to brainwash your dog into complete submission. You are strengthening the bond between you and your puppy while at the same time teaching him acceptable behavior. By helping him to understand, you’re helping yourself to become less worried about leaving him alone with your favorite sweater or the brand new carpet you just had put in.
Dog obedience is very important especially training the puppy to obey at an early age. Puppy’s tend to rip things apart, pull up plants, potty everywhere etc. These things can all be taken care of with training your dog to be obedient.
One of your very first lessons to your dog/puppy should be to teach him communication, this will make other tasks such as sit, stay, and come easier for you to teach. When teaching a puppy commands such as sit, stay, and come, make the commands loud and clear and repeat those commands often. A constant reminder to your dog will make him remember quickly. This will help the obedience process to be very successful.
An aggressive dog will need more constant attention in training techniques. When teaching your dog obedience especially an aggressive dog who wants to chase the mail man or eat the UPS man, you must make it known to the dog that you are king and your dog must follow the kings instructions or there will be no rewarding to your puppy.
When training a dog to be obedient, remember rewarding your puppy/dog is always a big part of teaching your puppy/dog to obey. Puppies are like children in the respect that physical rewards work best. Praise works as well but a treat may catch their attention a little better.
Obedience training will help you build a lasting and loving relationship with your puppy/dog.
