  • Start training your little guy early! Puppies are more likely to learn and adapt to training technique. But if you have an older dog doesn’t get discouraged! Persistence is key.
  • Use positive reinforcement. By keeping an encouraging tone both you and your furry friend will be more apt to enjoy the training process.
  • Be sure you follow-through with your commands. By reinforcing the command with an action, the dog is more likely to learn.
  • Keep your commands short and consistent. For example, use either “sit” or “down” to urge your pup to sit down.
  • Even if your dog is not listening to you, try to keep the same tone so your dog can more easily recommend the command.
  • Avoid disciplining your dog if there has been a significant amount of time after the incident. Your dog will not recognize what the discipline is referring to.
