MORE ON DOG TRAINING

THE KEY QUESTIONS

WOW! I KNEW WE ALL LOVED DOGS WHEN I SENT IN A RECENT HUB, BUT I SURELY UNDERESTIMATED HOW MUCH WE ALL DO AND HOW WE WANT TO DO THE RIGHT THING FOR OUR BEST FRIEND.

So, I am again returning in response to queries, with some of the key questions that I know now, concern dog owners everywhere and hopefully to put you in the right direction to solving whatever may be your concern for your pet.The top questions seem to fit the following categories:

1CAN I TRAIN MY ADULT DOG?

2.CAN I SOLVE MY DOGS BAD HABITS?

3.CAN I TRAIN MY DOGS TO DO THE SORT OF TRICKS I HAVE SEEN ON TV?

4.HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO TRAIN A DOG?

DEALING WITH THOSE PROBLEMS.

THE SIMPLE ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS 1/2/3 ABOVE IS YES, YES, YES! The answer to question 4 is that it is up to you, your understanding, your patience and the relationship you have with your dog.

The most important of all is your mutual relationship. Dogs are essentially loyal and trusting animals who respond to kindness not harshness. They also, like humans like to know where the line is and so respect and respond to fair discipline. Most dogs have spirit and so it is important to encourage that whilst ensuring it is positively contained

.A REAL RELATIONSHIP COUPLED WITH A SENSE OF REAL TRAINING IS KEY TO SUCCESS FOR BOTH ANIMAL AND TRAINER AND THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE IF YOU WISH YOUR DOG TO LEARN TRICKS THAT ARE NOT ESSENTIAL TO IT. The harsh stereotypical Circus Training regime just will not wash and indeed will lead to a breakdown in the all important relationship between your dog and yourself. Avoid this at all costs it can never be worth it .

All matters between dog and owner are ,as with human relationships and HOW you train is more important than WHAT you train. Whilst saying this I do understand that many look for advice and directions on this and so I have provided a link below to assist where you may wish to follow.

Following good ideas and investing in patience and a real extension of your relationship with your dog, is the best way I know of training for success with mutual enjoyment.
