No one wants to be the owner of a bad dog. Create a friendly pooch who shows good dog manners.
Set expectations and use training to make sure your dog understands what you want. Don’t let your dog jump, bark excessively, paw or bite. And remember, always reward your dog for good behavior.
Ten essential commands: Use essential dog commands to mold your canine companion into a well-behaved and well-disciplined member of your family.
Train your dog to be polite to strangers: Train your dog to be polite — or at least indifferent — to strangers to help your dog be the best version of himself that he can be.
Stop your dog from jumping: Start early to prevent dog jumping. Be consistent and train your dog to sit calmly rather than jump to show excitement.
Reward your dog for good behavior: Reward your dog quickly for good canine behavior using time playing with you, occasional treats or special toys.
