Dog Training & Psychology TIPS
- Before you commence training your dog, be sure you fully understand the exercise you are about to teach. Do not attempt any exercise if you are in doubt. If this is the case, refer to the book again.
- The motivation for your dog to learn is praise, delivered in a very pleasant tone of voice. Very few puppies need physical correction – just more patience and repetitive training, with play period at the end.
- You can be sure that if the puppy appears to be making errors, the fault lies with the trainer not communicating their message clearly enough to the animal.
- When training, the puppy may begin to lose interest, or apparently understand and pre-empt your requirements. Get him to do an exercise he likes, praise him, finish training, make a short game, then begin again later on in the day.
- You should be aware that different breeds, bred with different working instincts, progress in training at varying rates. For example:
- A Basset Hound will progress at a slower rate than a Labrador.
- A confident dog will progress faster than a nervous or shy dog.
- It is not important whether you dog learn quickly or slowly, as long as it learns.
