Easy Dog Training Exercises-Become A Dog Trainer

Updated on June 20, 2011

Dog Training

Whether you have a new puppy or an older dog it is never to soon or late to start dog training classes.

In your local area you can attend pet obedience training with a professional dog trainer, here you will get plenty of dog training advice but at a price.

You can watch the Dog Whisperer on TV, trying to emulate Cesar Milan is not at easy as it seems, you could buy Cesar Milan books and Dog Whisperer DVDs but can you really be as successful as Cesar Milan when training your dog?

In short the answer is probably not.

Here on HubPages I have written a full dog training program that you can follow from start to finish, you can dip in and out depending on your puppies training needs, print it off and keep it with you during your dog training sessions and you can even ask me questions about dog training and solving difficult dog behaviour.

Here is a list of my dog training articles with a brief description, you are encouraged to try the dog training techniques out and if you get a chance let me know if they worked for you and your dog.

Train your Puppy to Retrieve

Some dogs such as Labradors will naturally retrieve, sadly this is not the case with all dog breeds.

It is good practice to train your dog to retrieve because when he picks up something up he shouldn't have you need him to bring it to you. What you need him to do is give up his find before he swallows it.

This article teaches your puppy to retrieve in a playful manner and offers many tips of how to correct problem behaviour in your dog.
