10 Dog Training Tips to Stop Bad Behaviour
Trying to break a bad doggy habit? Get your pup on the right page by taking some basic tips on how to train your dog.
1. Who’s the Boss?
Let your pet know who the boss is from the start. Establish the rules and follow them consistently.
2. Avoid the Wrong Situations
If your pet demonstrates poor behavior in certain situations or environments, avoid those situations as much as possible.
4. Confine Your New Pets
When you get a new pet, make sure you supervise it closely during training and restrict its access to a small area of your home until properly trained.
7. Use Positive Reinforcement
Positive reinforcement is good. Never reprimand your pet physically or force it to follow your commands, as this may lead to fear and aggression.
8. Keep it Tame
Don’t “rough house” with your pet or encourage aggressive behavior, as your pet can’t distinguish between when this is acceptable and when it isn’t.
