Training a dog is not as easy as it sounds on TV.
If you own one, you probably know that already.
Some dogs are incredibly easy to train whereas some just simply don't want to be trained.
Don't be fooled by what anyone says about their puppy...
so much depends on what breed, background and even their own personal disposition is.
Unknown to many dog owners, however, are that there are some things that you can do to completely destroy your chances of training your dog...
Before you tackle the feat of training your dog, you should know that a successful obedience training program starts before you even approach the dog.
You should start by laying down a few rules, both for yourself and for your dog, and stick to them.
Don't break your own rules unless you want them to break them too.
For example, if you let the dog on the furniture, then a few days later decide that you don't want them on the furniture, you're going to have an unbelievably hard time convincing them to not get up there again.
It works the same way for potty training and giving them treats.
Only reward the good behavior.
Once you start training, always remember that the dog cannot understand what you're saying all the time.
Shouting will not make it better.
Try to hold back from yelling at the dog, as you will only create stress between the two of you and cause your puppy to digress in its training.
The best driver for your puppy is for them to want to please you, and if it senses strained relations between you two, it will not want to please you as much.
