Steps to train your dogIt is important to train your dog, whether small or large. Besides helping it behave better, training a dog will improve its relationship with you. More importantly still, training a dog to come, for example, could save it from being hit by a car if it ever escapes.
On first Never use a choke chain. They’re cruel and not only will your dog probably not like you very much, the choke chain could do unrepairable damage to your dog’s neck and dogs have died as a result of wearing choke chains. Borrow and buy books on dog training from your local library and your local bookshop. Get some treats that your dog likes. Take small pieces so that you can give it one for each thing it does without worrying about your dog getting fat. The very most important command you can train your dog is to come. Tell it to come whenever you feed it or under any other circumstance that it will come to you regardless. Take your dog, on a leash, to somewhere you can train them. Retractable leashes are generally not a good idea, as the string can break easily. When you start your walk, give your dog a command, such as heel or walk. You can give your dog any command for each thing, but you should always use the same command.
Next If you want your dog to speed up, give it a command to do so. If you want to slow down, tell it to. If your dog is pulling on its leash, give a tug on the leash to get its attention and tell it to slow down. Tell your dog to sit when you stop. If your dog doesn’t know how or simply refuses to, pull on its leash and push down on its back end while repeating the command. After it sits, have it lie down. To make a dog lie down, push down on its shoulders while it is sitting while telling it a command to lie down. If that doesn’t work, go in front of your sitting dog and pull its front legs down. If your dog is still too stubborn, stand it up, go to one side of it, and pull the front and back leg opposite…
