Eliminate Dog Bites

This is some important information.  If your dog bites another person, they can turn around and sue you for your dog’s actions.

Dogs have walked faithfully beside man throughout recorded history.  In the modern era, when the Internet brings vast swathes of information within everyone’s reach, dog owners have more resources than ever on training their pets to behave according to their wishes.

Here are just a few handy ideas for getting the best out of the dog-training process.

Your dog should learn that nothing in life is free.  Have him work to obtain goodies, no matter how small.  Have your pooch “sit” and wait before meals are placed on the floor, and release with a command.  Have your dog “sit” and wait by the door before walks.  He’ll learn patience, and he’ll be taught to wait for your cue.

If your dog does not respond well to you during training you should not get mad at him or her.  You are the teacher and he or she is the student, so if they are not responding very well to you it could be the fact that you are not such a good teacher.

In order to train a dog well, you need to learn to think like a dog.  Animals are not motivated by the same things humans are, so it is necessary to begin to understand what your dog thinks is significant in life.  When you begin to see how your dog views the world, you will be able to use that knowledge to train your pet properly.

When training an aggressive dog you should begin training them slowly to show them you are the alpha.  If you start out too quickly with alpha behavior on your part, an aggressive dog may think your behavior is a threat, and return an aggressive response. A example of this is taking a dog’s food from him when he thinks he is the alpha and your leader, which could cause the dog to bite you.

Train them early

If you wish to train a new puppy to walk on a leash, the initial step is to put a collar on the young puppy while you are letting loose with him. Having the puppy get comfortable wearing the collar is very important not only so that you can properly use a leash but also that your puppy has the proper identification tags in case he or she takes off.

A good dog training tip is to have your dogs meet at a park if you intend on bringing a new dog into your home. By having the dogs meet at the park, the dogs will be more friendly with each other, and it’ll take dominance out of the equation.

Dog bitesOnly give commands you are prepared to follow through with, or the dog will learn that it is all right to ignore you. If you give the command to sit, the dog must sit immediately or you will enforce the command with a finger pushing down on the lower back. Never give a command and allow the dog to choose whether to obey you or not unless you want to let the dog be the one in charge.

The dog-owner relationship is as old as history itself, and it is not going away any time soon! With information of the kind that has been shown here, dog owners can find the perfect training strategy to make their dog-training experience a successful and happy one.

Dog bites can be a serious issue if you let it get there.  Protect yourself from a possible lawsuit.
