The best time to start any sort of dog training is when they are just puppies of course. I’m sure you already know this obvious fact, but it’s very important that you stay patient AND consistent. Screaming, yelling or even hard punishment will no way teach your dog to stop chasing things. With out a doubt, it will only develop a more aggressive dog as well as other behavioral issues.
Last, a relatively new form of online dog training technique is called the ultrasonic whistle. This works because the ultrasonic sound is only heard by the dog. When the owner is trying to communicate a command, or stop the dog from barking, they will blow on their whistle when they want to communicate a command to the dog. The benefit of this is that the humans can’t hear this noise, but the dog can hear it, and they will learn to associate the sound with a command.
But when a 2lb Chihuahua does it, the general reaction is “ooooh, fiesty!” and then everyone laughs, because really, how funny is that 2lb little ball of teeth and fur.
Deciding whether or not this is a good class and dog trainer for you basically comes down to asking yourself if this is a person that you would trust your dog with. If the answer is no, then you shouldn’t take the class from them.
The last small puppy I had was terribly stubborn and aggressive, but he was also very lovable and loyal. I had only had him a week when I decided puppy obedience classes were in order. I’m pretty sure I learned more than my puppy did during those puppy obedience classes, as I have used those skills in training every dog I’ve had since. Each puppy is different and you must work on maximizing the positive features of your pet’s personality and abilities while minimizing the negatives. Be realistic in the goals you set to achieve and be patient.
You will profit from a calmer and more controllable dog, and it will also make it less difficult when family and friends come to visit you. To begin with, it is vital for you to understand why your dog behaves the way that they do.
This system of approaching your pet will result in effectively remediating your dog behavioral issues, without causing your pet harm or severing the relationship between you and your pet. You’ll notice your pooch rewards you with a new, loving attitude, and a healthy respect, not out of fear but out of love. Use this approach when you want to eradicate dog behavioral problems for good.
