When you are training your new dog or puppy that will be living indoors a good thing to do is the crate training. The dogs first impressions of the crate are the most important. Try putting some dog treats around the crate and leading into it so that they can walk around and inside the crate. Make sure that you are positive and upbeat so that they know it's a good thing.

 

Teaching a dog to know its name is the first dog training task a new dog owner should undertake. The name is used in calling the dog and just in getting its attention. Therefore it is more appropriate to choose a short and easily enunciated name than a longer and more confusing one.

 

Dogs quickly learn whether or not you really expect them to respond to your commands every time or if they might be able to get away with not obeying on occasion. Don't send false messages! Don't give your dog a command unless you are prepared to follow through and insure your dog obeys that command.

 

Dogs sometimes make mistakes because they can't do otherwise. It's your job to figure out why they can't. Consider an older dog, for example, that has been completely housebroken for years. If all of a sudden it starts relieving itself in the house something is wrong. The dog is likely sick and should be seen by a veterinarian.

 

If possible, position your dog's crate next to your bed. This is a critical step in teaching him that is where you want him to sleep. Since you are still within sight he isn't as likely to panic about having to stay in the crate for an extended period of time.

 

Feed your dog consistent amounts at approximately the same time every day. This is particularly important during the house training phase of pet ownership. This allows the dog to establish a regular elimination pattern and the discerning owner can use that pattern to their advantage in speedily training their pet.

 

When training your dog, do it in short sessions, no more than fifteen to twenty minutes each session. This keeps your dog from becoming bored and uninterested in the training. More importantly, it ensures that your focus is entirely on training, which is vital to ensuring your dog's success.

 

Spray bottles are the perfect deterrent for bad behavior. Getting sprayed is a little unpleasant, and will give your dog the idea the the behavior is unacceptable. Eventually, they won't do these behaviors anymore and your dog will be obedient and playful.

 

With these tips, you are ready to proceed confidently with your puppy's training. Consistency and attentiveness will win out over his unbridled impulsiveness. You want your pet to fit into your family life and become a faithful friend for many years. Following these training tips can pay off with just that result.
