You have seen them and you are usually amazed when you see people walking dogs with no leash and thier dog is not bothering other dogs, people or children. Now we know that walking a dog off leash is only allowed in leash free parks but we see it all the time in other settings.
Dog obedience training is the process of teaching your dog to follow commands and behave appropriately in various situations. This training can help establish a strong bond between you and your dog, as well as ensure their safety and well-being.
Here are some tips for effective dog obedience training:
Be consistent: Use the same commands and techniques every time you train your dog, and make sure everyone in your household does the same.
Use positive reinforcement: Reward your dog with praise, treats, and affection when they obey a command or behave well. This encourages them to repeat the behavior.
Start with basic commands: Teach your dog simple commands such as “sit,” “stay,” “come,” and “heel” before moving on to more complex commands.
Keep training sessions short: Dogs have short attention spans, so keep training sessions to 10-15 minutes at a time or the Interactivedog method of seconds at a time.
Be patient: Dogs learn at different rates, so don’t get discouraged if your dog doesn’t pick up a command right away. I will find the solution that works with you and your dog.
Start training in a quiet, distraction-free environment, and gradually increase the level of distraction as your dog becomes more proficient. Distraction training gets your dog to be reliable, which means it occurs 100% of the time.
Seek professional help if needed: If you’re having trouble training your dog, consider working with Interactivedog, we can offer guidance and support to get the dog you thought you wanted to have.
