Dog Training Information To Build Confidence And Eliminate Fear

Disobedience can be a real problem in the household with dogs. It can lead to aggression, poor behavior, and countless mishaps. What you need to understand is many times this behavior is due to fear and a lack of confidence within your dog.

Here is some dog training information that can help change the character of your pet for good.

The first thing you need to learn is patience and consistency. You have to learn to be patient with your dog; especially when they are a puppy.

They are going to make mistakes and if you yell at them, it is only going to hinder their confidence and increase their fear.

Whatever you do, make sure you are consistent with your actions so they can learn.

Along with consistency, you need to learn when the right time is to praise their behavior and when not to.

You never want to tell a dog it is ok after they have made a mistake.

While you do not have to yell at them, you do want to punish them so they learn.

And if they do something correctly, praise them for it.

Learning to use your tone correctly is a vital piece of dog training information many owners are not aware of.

You only want to use sweet and soft tones when your dog is acting appropriately as these sounds are reassuring.

While you do not want to raise your voice when they do something bad, a firm tone is necessary.

As you begin to work with their fear, take into account exposing them to new things.

As with people, it can be nerve-racking going to an unidentifiable place or being introduced to a new object.

It is up to you to plan out these things in advance, time them out and supervise it carefully.

If your dog is showing signs of fear, try to prevent them from hiding or cowering away.

This will only increase their emotions if you allow them to hide or if you praise the behavior by petting them.

Make sure you only pet them and show them signs of encouragement when they are confident, calm and relaxed.

The last bit of dog training information that can help eliminate fear and increase confidence in your dog is to use various games as a tool.

Tug games will build the confidence of your dog as it makes them feel equal to you.

Thinking games like introducing the names of family, toys and objects can increase their awareness and intelligence.

This can go a long way toward eliminating their fear and building strength and character.
