I. Basic Principles
Training a dog is a matter of patience; after all, dogs are not very intelligent animals, so dogs should move from shallow to deep, from simple to complex movements.
II. Basic Skills
1. Developing a dog’s conditioned reflexes should be done in a quiet place with few external distractions.
2. To gradually complicate the dog’s conditioned reflexes, that is, to strengthen the dog’s ability to continually adapt to new environments.
3. Dogs can still confuse and stimulate signals in complex environments when they can still perform ciphers.
4. The dog trainer should use certain methods and means to reward diligence and punish laziness, to cultivate the dog’s initiative, so that the dog training can really become a success.
III. Best time
When the dog reaches At 3 to 4 months of age, you can start training him to do simple things. For example, sniffing with his nose and connecting things with his mouth. A dog’s breeding and training before it is a year old determines its future. Therefore, dog education and training should start as soon as possible. Education and learning to develop various good habits is a prerequisite for future training.
A dog is a rapidly developing animal physically Generally speaking, a dog a few months old can help humans work. But don’t let the dog work too early, and don’t test the dog’s skills, ferocity, and desire to fight too early; this can lead to bad habits of disobedience and frantic biting. When the dog is about 15 months old, it should be trained in sections for ferocity and to increase its desire to fight.
IV. Basic Methods
IV. Basic Methods
1. Food stimulation method
That is, the dog is trained to perform the prescribed action through food stimulation. Food stimulation can be used as an induction tool because food stimulates the dog’s nervous system and causes appetitive excitement, especially its favorite food. This method is effective in making the training dog actively participate in the training and complete the training subjects quickly.
Food stimulation can also be used as a means of encouragement. When a dog is trained to complete a given action, he can be given his favorite treat as a reward to reinforce the conditioned reflex. Food stimulation can also be used as a method of relief. When training a dog to complete a prescribed action under strong mechanical stimulation, it can be fed some food to soothe the training dog’s nerves and increase its dependence on the person.
Because the food stimulus is positive and the training dog is willing to accept it, the dog’s movements will naturally be active and the nerves will be excited. However, this method has its own limitations, which means that it does not completely guarantee that the dog will follow the person’s instructions. If used improperly, it can lead to food dependence in a dog that must have food in order to accept its instructions.
2 Mechanical stimulation method
Mechanical stimulation is a method of using machinery, such as leashes and chains, to force a trained dog to respond in a certain way. This method can be used as a means of coercion. For example, when some dogs go outside, some dogs like to run fast through in front of their owners, while others look around. In order to control these two to control these two dogs, the owner or trained dog must bring a leash or cord to control it so it cannot advance or lag behind.
Mechanical stimulation can also be used as a means of prohibition. If you want to stop your dog from doing or not doing something, issue a stop code accompanied by coercion to match. This method is the most effective and timely, such as being trained to bite passersby, pick up food anywhere, and chase poultry. Mechanical stimulation can also take certain punitive measures against the dog. If the trained dog repeatedly makes mistakes, stern reprimands are ineffective, and ignores the authority of the owner, the mechanical stimulation method should be used for education. This method is usually very effective in correcting problems in adult dogs.
Because the mechanical stimulation method is external, simple and relatively rigid, care should be taken in its use of the appropriate intensity, which should be tailored to the characteristics of the dog being trained, especially in young dogs. If the stimulation is too strong, it will inhibit the dog’s excitatory nerves and affect the training effect, and also tend to affect the dog’s dependence on the human. Therefore, in order to relieve the dog’s nervous state and consolidate the conditioned reflex, this method is usually used together with rewards and other means.
3. Imitation training method
It is a training method that uses the behavior of well-trained, well-educated dogs to influence or drive the training of the dog. This method is usually used when the dogs are not yet old enough, because they are in the transitional stage of growth and development and are most receptive to the influence of their people, and the behavior of other dogs tends to be the object of positive imitation. Of course, the adult dog must be a good dog who can dominate and set an example, otherwise it will be difficult to be effective.
4. Reward and Punish
Reward and punishment is a combination of mechanical stimulation with food stimulation and food-like stimulation with touch and verbal praise. A popular expression is a slap and three rubs. This method not only lets the dog know what not to do, but also what to do. It works best when the reward and punishment are clearly defined.
V. Basic points
V. Basic points
1. Keep training every day
The most important thing in training your poodle is persistence. You don’t have to schedule too much time each day, but it should be done gradually and impatiently. The dog will be sensitive to your emotions if the owner can’t train it mentally first. It will also become lazy. If this training is scheduled for too long, the dog will get bored, will harmonize, lose its freshness, and will not be too focused on learning.
2. More praise, less scolding
When the Poodle is trained to the owner’s commands the Poodle will show more joy and satisfaction than we can imagine. Therefore, we should praise and encourage him more and consider this as a basic principle of training and education. Too much scolding can make a dog retarded. If you treat him at the ratio of nine times a scolding to nine times a praise, and give him more praise and encouragement, he will show an increasing enthusiasm for learning.
3. Praise on the spot, even if you reprimand
When a dog does something it shouldn’t do, it must be chastised in time for a few words. If it is scolded after this time, it does not remember that it was criticized for something. The same is true for rewarding it. If it passes this time, it may not achieve appreciation.
4. With voice and gesture
When a dog does something it shouldn’t, scold it: no; when it does what its owner commands, praise it: great. These basic codes should be short and easy to distinguish, and once chosen should be uniform. Accordingly, the hand signals clearly show the owner’s attitude.
5. Unified training attitude
In the family, all family members should reach the same understanding and adopt a uniform caliber for their education and training. Of course, it is best to designate one person in the family who is primarily responsible for its training; but the family must have a handle on when to scold it and when to praise it. If someone is ambiguous about a thing it has done and someone chastises it, it will be very confused as to whether it is right or wrong, whether it should or should not do it.
The most important thing in training your poodle is persistence. You don’t have to schedule too much time each day, but it should be done gradually and impatiently. If the owner cannot train him mentally first, the dog will be sensitive to your emotions and he will become lazy. If this training is scheduled for too long, the dog will get bored, will harmonize, lose its freshness, and will not be too focused on learning.
VI. Sub-training ①
[1. Salute training]
The Poodle has a noble temperament. If he can salute people, he will look even kinder and more lovable. When training a salute, it should be done on the basis of having the ability to sit and the following training methods can be used.
① When feeding the dog, sit the other dog first and bring the food bowl up when the dog starts to eat. As you slowly move up the food bowl, the dog’s predecessor will inevitably stand up as the bowl rises. At this point, order Salute! When the dog is standing up, give the food again.
② Find a flat surface with a wall, sit the other dog, lay down the salute code, then grab the dog’s front legs, slowly lift them upright, and reward the dog.
③ Order a handshake, where you hold the dog’s right and left front legs in your left and right hands, then order a salute, then slowly release your hands and let the dog stand alone on its hind limbs and reward the dog.
When a friend comes to your home, your pooch can greet them warmly and they will envy you because you have a polite pooch. When a friend comes to your house as a guest, you greet each guest by saying hello and please sit down. Every time you talk, you kiss and pet the dog.
With your intimacy, the dog will also wag its head and tail to express intimacy. Thus, every time you call hello and please sit down, the dog will wag its head and tail and no longer need you to be intimate and touch it. This shows that the dog is well-mannered.
When guests leave, you start by pointing to each guest, calling the dog’s name to get the dog’s attention, then say goodbye to the guest, have the dog stand up, wag its tail to say goodbye to the guest, and take it away.
The dog takes a picture, you reward it immediately, the guest appreciates it, and after many repetitions, the dog can greet the guest politely.
[3. Stop Barking Training]
When your dog is confronted with strangers, other dogs, or unusual noises, and the dog barks loudly, this behavior must be stopped firmly. Such barking is both impolite and disruptive to the surrounding environment. It will be reported if you encounter a demanding neighbor. Barking dogs tend to occur in miniature and toy poodles that have genetic defects or are neurotic.
When training a poodle not to bark, you must use a firm tone of voice in conjunction with hand movements. When he hears someone outside the door barking in the house, he should immediately hold the dog’s mouth with his hand and shake his head in a very positive tone: no.
After a few training sessions, he will understand that this barking is wrong and thus get rid of this bad habit.

4 Defecation training
The Poodle is an animal that likes to be clean. The dog toilet should be fixed indoors in a bathroom or on a balcony. When he confirms to go to the toilet, it is easy to fix there every time. Be patient the first time you get your dog to go to the right place to potty. If you find that the dog wants it BB or NN,it should be taken to the place it should go immediately and the dog should be praised immediately when it does it right.
Potty training is important and takes a lot of time. When the dog wakes up, after a meal, before bedtime, and when he is having fun, he will be thrashing around on the floor, indicating that he is looking for a place to defecate. At this time, call it and hurry to carry it to the designated place. If it defecates in the right place, encourage it immediately. If it is in the wrong place, press the nose on the spot, pat the buttocks and say it is not accurate, immediately clean and disinfect the floor, spray deodorant aromatic to cover the odor as much as possible. The dog looks for this smell and commits it again and again.
Sometimes a dog will urinate anywhere because of excessive panic, excitement, getting your attention, or illness. At this point, we must identify the cause and be patient in correcting and treating it. Puppies digest and absorb quickly and excrete quickly, so don’t worry, it is the cause of immature muscle control of the excretory organs.
 Feeding training]
In addition to regular, rationed meals,
, you can give your dog additional stimulation to enhance his appetite beyond the designated points. For example, calling both dogs by name before each lick and being persistent will help the dog enter the meal prep process, putting its digestive system into an excited state and increasing saliva production. In this way, the diet will be very smooth and eaten every time.
Due to over-pampering by the owner, the dog tends to form bad habits of picky eating. It is extremely detrimental to its growth and development. It is easy to suffer from various functional disorders of nutritional deficiency. The first thing you need to do is to take the food away from your dog if it hasn’t been eaten for half an hour, and not to feed him any food during that time, even if he is hungry.
The basic principle of dog training is patience. After all, a dog is an animal with a low IQ. Therefore, it is a gradual process from shallow to deep, from simple to complex movements. However, the poodle is the second most intelligent dog in the world. It is intelligent, lively and good natured. It is very approachable to people. It is a very loyal dog. If you train him carefully, I am sure you will train a smart poodle.
