7 August 2011 795 views No Comment

A dog, though your best friend at all times, can tend to embarrass you sometimes just like your human friends. The difference with dogs however is that you can train your pet to behave, which is not the case with human friends. In order to be a happy dog owner, you’ll need to ensure that you train your dog well.

Does your pet dog refuse to obey commands like “sit” and “stay”? Does it bother visitors by jumping and barking? Your dog might just be acting exuberant, but in public places, it is not only embarrassing to you but frightening for other people as well. In order to avoid such situations, you should begin to train your dog and teach him to behave.

Dogs are in many ways are similar to children and need to be taught how to behave in social set-ups properly. In order for your dog to obey your commands and behave acceptably, instigate routine training sessions. Such training is not easy in case you are the first time owner of a dog. Some owners take their dogs to expert trainers a couple of times week. If you are unable to afford it, you can rely on resources of your own.

Proper research can and will uncover various training manuals and books to help you out, and some even come in complete packages, providing step by step guidance through the training process. Keep in mind that repetition and reward is the proper way to instill dogs with proper behavior. Losing your temper at any point of time is not at all beneficial. If you choose a good package and devote the necessary time, patience and praise, your dog will soon be a very well behaved and content pooch.
