Come, Sit, Stay

Training with Meaning

Training a dog doesn't have to take all of your time, but it will require all of your patience. Come, does not mean when you feel like it. Sit, doesn't mean when you are tired. Stay, doesn't mean only when I have a treat in my hand. Dogs love to please their masters. 

 

Getting the Basics

How you train your dog in the beginning will translate into how your dog learns down the road. If you are impatient and get upset or frustrated, your dog will most likely fear you instead of wanting to please you. Instead of yelling "NO!" just do the lesson over again, every time he gets something right, reward him with a treat and lots of kisses.

If you already have one well-trained dog, the best way to train another is to keep them around one another. Tell your already trained dog to sit, and when he does, give him a treat. Your new dog will soon get the concept and follow suit.

Movin' On Up

Once you have the basics down, you are just a few steps, and maybe some extra time, away from teaching your dog all the tricks. More advanced training and tricks require your dog's attention and devotion. Just remember that you too have to show him equal attention and devotion. The reason dog's want to please us is because they know the reward that comes along with doing what is commanded of them!

 

Please comment below, we would love to know what questions you have about tricks and training!
