The rules of dog training are things that you must always keep in mind to be able to train a dog successfully. This is the most important preparation step when starting a dog training process at home or at a dog training school.
1st Rule: Love
You should raise a puppy between 2 and 3 months old and establish dominance over your dog from an early age. Studies show that dogs are very emotional animals. When you love and treat it like a family member, it tends to trust and listen to you. Of course, it is easier to train a dog that is obedient or trusts you completely than a stubborn dog that will not consider you as its leader.
To establish dominance over the dog we name the dog briefly and, importantly, we like it. Use food and name calling to let your dog know his name. It usually takes about 2 to 3 days for the dog to remember the name. After that, you sit down to eat in front of the dog, no matter how much he asks, he won’t give it, only after you have finished eating will he eat it. Next, most dogs tend to run out to meet you every time you enter the house, not giving way to it, but forcing it to get out, back up and follow you into the house. Treat the dog without harsh words, do not hit, or stroke but must be respectful to the dog.
2nd Rule: Time
If you don’t have a lot of time to train, this is quite difficult. Time to play with the dog, go for a walk, introduce him to new things, talk to strengthen the bond. Most importantly, the training period should be strictly adhered to. For example, today you teach your dog at 7 am, the next day you also have to teach and review it at that time. That way, its biological clock can synchronize and the reception becomes better. If we can teach meals or not, as long as we like, we will definitely not achieve any results.
3rd Rule: Patience
Patience is both an important principle and a criterion for evaluating an experienced coach. Dogs are not humans, they learn from what the trainer tells them and it’s all just natural imitation or reflexes when led. Dogs will normally make the wrong or unattractive movements. You should not hit or yell at it, it will scare it. The most important thing is to know how to patiently review the sequence of training methods, mold them slowly and repeat them until the dog grasps it. Don’t jump, give up halfway when training a dog or know it’s wrong and still let the dog do it because you’re too stressed and out of patience with the dog. Do not be in a hurry and ask too much from your dog. Need to slowly, do each step correctly, if the dog is wrong, then start practicing again. Do not force the dog too much because when it is tired it will not study well.
4th Rule: Reward and Punishment
Dogs develop conditioned reflexes quickly or slowly depending on the training method and the handler’s treatment. Dogs must be treated like a child, like to receive gifts, encouragement and wrong training, then gently punish. When training dogs, every time the dog does the right thing, enjoy the food, pet it to make it feel happy and happy, Since then the dog learns faster and remembers longer. Use this principle at all times including later use.
With a dog that does wrong or is too stubborn, scold gently, sternly and decisively. Penalties by forcing you to sit still or lie still. The penalty period lasted about a minute.
5th Rule: Timely and decisive statements
Whenever teaching a dog to learn a skill, the command should be given in a timely manner. Speak loudly, clearly and sternly. This helps the dog to receive commands in the most clear and focused way. The loud command also lets the dog know the obligation to obey the owner’s command. When you combine teaching the dog from many different methods, at the time when the dog performs the correct movement, it must be accompanied by the corresponding command. Studying or using a dog also needs to follow this principle.
