Training your dog can be difficult if you’re attempting to do it for the first time, or the dog hasn’t experienced any proper training before. However with a kind manner, and a lot of patience, anyone is capable of training their dog. It will take a long time, as you need to do it in small sessions. The usual recommended thought is to have sessions that don’t last longer than fifteen minutes.
You don’t want to have the dog that you’re training getting bored, and distracted during a longer session. You can have sessions two or three times a day though, making the dog training about repetition. Start with something rather basic, such as ‘sit’. When the dog manages that task, and sits for you then move on to other commands like ‘stay’ or ‘lie down’.
Distractions are something that you should avoid as much as possible. Take the dog that you are training somewhere quiet, and try to remove anything that might distract you. It’s not good to have to take business calls, when you’re in the middle of the training session. It’s best to not have the first few sessions at a location where a lot of other dogs and owners go.
