Minefield 1: Let your dog study frequently

Minefield #1, let your dog study often

When a dog is new to training, most dog parents feel that training is slow and are always eager to train more programs, eager to train all the basics in one day.

This is wrong; as the saying goes, you can’t chew more than you can chew, and once the subject is off, it’s harder to correct than it is to lose.

If you want your dog to be well trained, you must follow the principles of dog training, and training that combines work and rest for your dog will certainly be effective. Dog trainers must be patient and persistent and not rude. Some dogs are relatively slow to understand their owners’ intentions, while others are naturally rebellious.

If some movements cannot be taught for a while, take rough actions such as scolding, kicking, etc. but cause the dog to flinch and panic. Stick with it and don’t give up halfway. Do not expect all dogs to be geniuses; many actions are formed through habit. Therefore, training must be repeated until the dog learns, does it right, and doesn’t give up or adapt.

Minefield 2. Be aware of the environment in which you train your dog

It is very important to choose an environment at the beginning of training. If the environment is complex and noisy, it is easy for the dog to concentrate. The training effect will also be greatly reduced by getting twice the result for half the effort. This is very detrimental to the dog.

Once a bad habit is formed, it’s too late to regret it. You and your dog need a quiet environment with no distractions. Because this will totally affect the success or failure of your training.

Don’t worry about training your dog. You need to train step by step. Each training session should not take too long, no more than 15 minutes at most. When the dog does the right thing, reward it promptly praise, touch, or give it a favorite treat.

The most immediate adverse effect of dog fighting is the destruction of rapport. This pitfall makes it more difficult to return to a good rapport without separation in future training. If your dog makes a mistake, there should be necessary scolding and stimulation, but these are two different concepts.

This old-fashioned punishment is more of a retaliation for the dog’s disobedience than a training exercise. In a depressed state of training failure, most owners resort to old-fashioned punishments, such as spanking the dog. While scolding can train some subjects, you may never see your dog’s confident eyes or the wonderful cooperation you have with your dog in some training programs.

[Correct approach]

When training a dog, you must establish the concept that punishment is intended to correct inappropriate behavior. In the past few years, punishment has become almost a taboo. Many people mistakenly believe that punishment is cruel, or even a useless training tool. In fact, punishment can be very effective in prohibiting a dog from doing a certain behavior, as long as it is done correctly.

Traditional punishments are usually inflicted randomly after a dog has made a mistake for a long period of time. Ironically, although the social climate has changed and people are moving away from traditional punishments, examples of animal abuse are on the rise. To break this paradox, we must rethink our moral view of punishment and how to properly use this powerful training tool.

We usually think that moral people would never inflict pain on their dogs. But while this argument is good in theory, it is impossible in practice. To change this bias, we must correct our morality to the principle of not hurting dogs, rather than hypocrisy and insistence on not hurting dogs.

Minefield 4. Training dogs with a rigid learning model

The training materials contain specific and detailed training methods, but you can’t follow them to completion. You may see a lot of training video material, but the same methods are not always effective in your hands. Each dog has its own characteristics and personality, and you cannot train all dogs in the same way.

Please don’t train your dog with a copied learning model. As crude as it may seem, it is essentially a form of knowledge. It requires your flexibility of mind and keen observation skills. While you need to learn from the success of training your dog, you cannot copy it. You should fully understand it and use it flexibly.

Dog owners should learn the idea of training, the understanding of training, and the idea of training, rather than blindly imitating them. Tailoring training to the dog’s characteristics is the best way to train.

[Ark Review]

The right way to train your dog should be: one step at a time, from easy to difficult. Remember to be patient and love your dog a lot. People who train their dogs with completely positive rewards are quite respectable, but few people know how to use punishment correctly to achieve their training goals. I hope that when you train your dog you can avoid these four minefields and train a dog that listens and works as its owner intends.
