Kim A., a truly wonderful pet sitter located in Sydney, is giving her top tips for dog training! Keep an eye out for Kim when looking for a pet sitter and check out her Mad Paws Profile below!
"As an owner, you must follow through, consistently using the one word commands with your dog every day, otherwise they forget and begin making up their own rules. This leads to the dog ignoring the owner asking them to come, sit, stay, heel, drop. The dog becomes unruly and thinks it can do its own thing, especially if the dog has more than one person asking it to obey them.
Puppies sleep soundly, within their own baskets with a ticking clock close by, hot water bottle for warmth and a familiar smelling t-shirt or piece of the owners clothing. If all their needs are met, ie. enough walking, playing, running, food, water, pats and love, doggy jobs, they'll settle down. Once this is done, ignore them until the next morning.
Take the pup outside as soon as they've had a drink of water. 20 minutes after they have eaten. Stand and wait patiently till they do doggy jobs. Praise them up to the heavens when they do their wee and doggy jobs. This way, they'll know to do doggy jobs outside and they'll be praised for doing this.
Make sure the dog's full attention is on you when you're working, training your dog. They need to look at you to see your next move and what their next command will be. It helps to build up the psychic connection between you and your beloved best friend.
If you're unsure, there are properly run and organised obedience training courses which simplify our relationship with dogs. These courses make the owner "top dog" and the boss who cares for the pack, not the other way around when dogs are unruly, doing their own thing. Trained up the dogs can play tag and do agility training for reward and added entertainment and excitement. There is nothing happier than a doggy working as part of a relay team, bringing the ball back and winning the blue ribbon for being the winners."
