As a responsible pet owner, 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 — or at least indifferent — to strangers to help your dog be the best version of himself that he can be.
Start early to prevent dog jumping. Be consistent and train your dog to sit calmly rather than jump to show excitement. Always reward your dog for good behavior.
The best way to protect your dog is to get him away from a dog park bully before fighting starts. If your dog appears fearful, or you notice other dogs exhibiting aggressive behavior, leave the area.
Reward your dog quickly for good canine behavior using time playing with you, occasional treats or special toys so you can reinforce good behavior.
Use patience, education and positive reinforcement to make sure your pup has good dog manners. Don’t allow jumping, begging or mouthiness.
Dogs know the difference between right and wrong. But only in the context of their own culture or within the definitions of traditional dog behavior.
Teach your dog to behave: Use treats for rewards, camera to monitor, a sturdy collar and a clicker.
Prevent inappropriate canine behavior with training, rewards. Be sure to spend quality time with your dog and set clear expectations.
Keep puppy walks short and fun. Be patient. Take the time and make the effort now, and you will never dread walking your dog.
