Basic Dog Correction & Discipline Techniques & Training Methods - How To -

Go to Index

PUNISHMENTS
Is it important for the dog to understand what are the type of behaviors you consider inadequate. Don't confuse the dog, if something is wrong, it will always be. You should punish the dog only when it is really misbehaving. When you growl at the dog, use a severe tone of voice.
PREVENTION
ADVICE 355
Use a bitter spray to impregnate those objects that may be attractive to the dog, for example, old shoes.
CONFINING
If the dog continues chewing, leave it in a cage when it is alone at home.
ADVICE 356
When the dog is in the cage, leave some chewing toys inside.
RE-EDUCATION RULES
Even when the bad customs vary, almost all of them can be corrected by following a general reeducation program.
1. Have the dog obey an order, such as sitting or laying down, before receiving a verbal or food reward.
2. Go back to the obedience basic training. Make sure the dog obeys, sits and remains quiet when you order so.
3. Make sure the dog is always under your control either at home or outside. Always keep the dog on the leash or the long leash until you are sure that it obeys your orders.
4. Continue with this program and convince yourself that bad customs won't be eliminated from one day to the other. It will take you several weeks to solve the problem totally.
5. In the case of the serious problems, with which you, the dog or other people can get hurt, look for professional help.
KNOW the Dog's TEMPERAMENT
There are a great number of returns to shelters because many people choose a dog because of its aspect and not for its temperament. These dogs tend to suffer from problems caused for their abandonment.
ADVICE 357
When acquiring a dog older than six months, you can check if the animal has any behavior problems by practicing some exercises on the dog. Don't take a dog with problems if you don't have the time and patience to treat them.
NERVOUSNESS
ADVICE 358
Approach the dog from the front looking it in the eyes. A quiet dog will feel happy, while a nervous dog will bark or shrink.
FEAR OF THE HAND
ADVICE 359
Having the dog on the leash that should be loose, caress it under the chin and the back while you talk to the animal. A dog that has fear of hands will back up.
DISPOSITION FOR OBEDIENCE
ADVICE 360
Take the leash, order the dog to sit. The dog's answer will tell you if the animal has had any previous training to obey.
APTiTUDE FOR TRAINING
ADVICE 361
Oblige the dog to sit. Its attitude will indicate you its predisposition.
Dog AGGRESSIVENESS TOWARD OTHER DOGS
ADVICE 362
Introduce other dominant dog to your dog. If your dog only smells the other dog curiously, then it means your dog is not aggressive with other dogs.
FEAR OF THE CHILDREN
ADVICE 363
Holding the dog with leash loose, introduce it to a child previously prepared not to make visual contact with the dog. The dog's answer will indicate if the children make it nervous or it likes them.
ANXIETY FOR SEPARATION
ADVICE 364
Check if the dog barks or shows any other sign of anxiety if you leave it alone in a room during some time, for example, ten minutes.
FEAR TO STRANGERS
ADVICE 365
Holding the dog with the loose leash, have a stranger examine the dog. Its behavior will indicate the problems that may come out with the veterinary or the grooming saloon.
POSSESSIVE INSTINCTS
ADVICE 366
Holding the dog by the leash, take out its food bowl. Congratulate the dog and then give it its food back. Repeat the exercise with a toy or a bone.
REACTION IN FRONT OF CARS
ADVICE 367
If you pretend to take the dog with you on a car trip, try its reaction to five minutes trip first and leaving the dog in the car for the same period.
OTHER SENSIBILITIES
ADVICE 368
Some dogs are afraid of strong noises and others dislike the sudden actions such as opening an umbrella.
