Nice Home Dog Training Tips

Updated on June 7, 2010

New Home Dog Training Tips

 Just because you may not be entering your dog into any competitions, this doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t still be trained.  Even house dogs need to have some obedience and other training, to make them the best dog they can be.  You don’t want your dog to jump up on people when they come to your home or bark all the time for no reason.  Any dog can be trained regardless of their age and breed.

 One of the most basic and yet important home dog training tips is to make sure that the dog is properly housetrained.  This is a very common problem among dogs and although it can be frustrating you need to have patience.  Especially if the dog is quite young, six months or less, the problem could just be temporary.  Puppies need to be taken outside to go to the bathroom much more frequently than adult dogs.

 It’s important to make the trip outside enjoyable for your dog.  People are often in such a rush these days that when they finally do take their dog out to go to the bathroom they’re rushing things and trying to get them to hurry up and go back inside.  This behavior is going to be confusing to the dog and they won’t be as eager to go outside when they feel the need to go to the bathroom.  Often time dogs have a problem with barking where they’re not only barking to protect the family and home but also throughout the day on a regular basis, seemingly for no reason.

 A home dog training tip that will help here is to pay more attention to the dog and figure out what the problem is.  Dealing with a barking problem can actually be quite difficult because all dogs are different and one solution is not always going to be the answer.  Some dogs bark for attention while others may be barking because they’re in pain.  Telling the dog to be quiet in a stern voice but without yelling is what you should try first.

 If you find that this isn’t working the next step would be to try taking the dog outside when they start barking again.  After this it would be wise to bring the dog to the vet to make sure that they’re in good health and don’t have any health conditions that are causing them pain.  Otherwise, it could be another type of health problem and you’ll have to bring the dog in to a veterinarian to make sure that they’re healthy and not in any pain.  Training a dog can certainly be quite a challenge but with patience you can train your dog properly.
