Behavioral Wish Lists for Dog Owners: The first things to train your dog to do.

Every dog owner has a list of behavioral wishes for their pets, but it’s up to you to get your dog to learn all those desirable behaviors. That’s why it’s so important to learn about proper dog training, and the different commands and training lessons to give your dog first. Here is a quick breakdown of basic commands and training lessons that you’ll want to teach your dog early on.

Behavioral wish lists for dog owners

House Breaking

One of the first things that most dog owners focus on is house breaking the pet to keep accidents in the house to a minimal. This is an important skill to train dogs to have, and it’s something that can be accomplished quite easily if started from an early age.

Leash Training

Walks are essential for the mental health and physical well-being of your canine. But they can be quite tiresome if your animal isn’t trained to behave on leash, especially with a large breed dog. That’s why leash training is an early skill that needs to be developed. Speak with a puppy trainer that understands the proper leash training technique, and figure out how to get your dog to behave while walking on leash. The sooner you do, the easier it will be to properly exercise him.

Simple First Commands

Simple commands such as sit, down, and stay are very helpful when handling your pup. Not only are they beneficial for controlling how he acts in different locations, but they give you a training goal to shoot for, and give your dog a task to complete, which is important to help keep him occupied and also help maintain your position of authority.

Training a new dog isn’t as simple as it seems, and if you aren’t too certain about what you are doing, it’s best to seek the help of a puppy trainer. A good, qualified trainer will help you handle most of the common problems that your canine suffers from, and should speed up obedience training goals dramatically.

My pup wasn't good with training to begin with but with a little age she learnt a lot faster.

Our first dog was a rescue dog and he came with a fully obedience training and it was awesome!! Even years after I moved out and no one else really did his commands, he still followed them. He never forgot! Best dog I had ever been around. Training is SO beyond important.

I'm hoping to be able to have a dog someday, they aren't allowed where I am now. This is handy information, and I would want a well trained dog, good to know how to get going the right way.

Yes you have to be consistent with your training. My issue always was the guys wanted to rough house with the dog and sometimes they would get aggressive because of it. I like a mellow dog as Im older now.

Love these woofs?
