Dog Training

The training time must be sacred if you want to reach an advanced level. 7. Keep a record. Most trainers do not keep a record of training their dogs, with the exception of some who practice clicker training. However, keeping a record helps a lot. When you take a record of each training session, you can know with certainty how to proceed and there are problems.

Memory is fragile, so do not trust it to keep track of your training sessions. Use the old method of pencil and paper, and keep track of each session, noting the percentage of correct answers for your dog, the duration of the session, time, date and some comments that I consider relevant. 8. Keep your enthusiasm. Since training takes time and does not happen overnight, it's easy to lose enthusiasm. There is nothing better to maintain enthusiasm for dog training skills to do videos. Search videos that interest you (there are many on youtube) and watch them from time to time. In addition to helping maintain the enthusiasm, will give you many ideas for training.

Remember that you can only achieve a high-level training if you keep the enthusiasm. 9. Do not overdo the training. While training is an excellent way to improve the relationship have with your dog, and your best friend provide intellectual stimulation and physical, is not the only important thing. To have a dog healthy and happy, while reaching their full potential in training, must be balanced in three main levels: physical, mental and emotional. Therefore, you must give your dog the necessary health care, a healthy diet, adequate exercise (walking and playing), a company of humans and dogs, a quiet environment to live and love. 10. Do not justify failure. It is common for trainers to justify their failures by blaming external factors. Sometimes they blame the environment ("noisy", "many dogs present", etc.), Sometimes blame the dog owners ("do not have the leadership needed", "can not channel their energy", etc.). , and sometimes blame the breed or lineage of the dog (the Akita can not be trained "," This dog can not sit still because he's got drive, "is a line of work, so you can not calm ", etc.).. All these excuses only serve to collect salary without appearing incompetent. If you want to push the boundaries of training your dog, you have to realize that the occasional failure is part of the process. Every time I fail in some look, consider this failure as a challenge and an opportunity to learn. Instead of justifying the dog did not attend the call, ask yourself what went wrong in the training process and correct it. Trigosso Rodrigo is a biologist and dog trainer.
