Is the training of a puppy difficult? Is it an easy one? Well, it’s quite tricky to answer in a straight way. The rate of success of the training of the puppy depends on the trainer only and none else. But it is always best if the owner is the trainer himself. The reason is that as an owner he can keep tabs on the puppy. This enables him to learn the secrets of the dog including disposition, attitude and also aptitudes. He will certainly and must avail these advantages.
But there are some essential conditions and you must know these before you proceed. There are, in fact, many who try to become friends of their own dogs. What they do not know is that this is one of the most awful mistakes. Now owner can become a friend of his own dog or puppy. This should also never be. But before stopping this frantic approach you should know the reason. Dogs, though are being domesticated for centuries, in essence are wild animals. For this single and simple reason they prefer to live in packs like other animals. Each of these dogs’ packs remains under the sway of an alpha dog.
This alpha dog enjoys and also executes an authoritarian kind of rule and makes the other dogs subservient therefore. The dogs are habituated with this leadership though generations. It is, as a result, impossible for them to acknowledge any other dissimilar leadership. Never try to implement the forbidden one. The result will be disastrous for you.
This is the first essential step that should be taken by you. It is also necessary to begin any training after ascertaining the breed of the dog. This is important since it controls the behaviour of the puppy. At several times many dogs are found as leaders while many others are seen as mere followers. This difference is due to the influence of the respective breed. You must therefore implement the training on the basis of the breed.
Now we come into the phase of the command training. The command training is the most important stage and this helps the grooming in a perfect manner. Remember that there is the always the need of simple commands. Each of these commands should be specific, unambiguous and consist of one word also. There are some trainers who are found to command their pets in both of harsh and difficult tones. For instance they say “Come on” on Tuesday but on Wednesday they say “C-ommmmmmm On!” Do you think this is feasible? Even if you do, it is in no way. This confuses the dog. It fails to comprehend the command and act accordingly. This is simply undesirable and hence you should steer clear of this.
In the course of training there should be the presence of a strict routine. You can easily make the dog obey the routine since dogs are partial to routines. These animals have astonishing internal clocks and they know to balance these with routines.
You must maintain the training daily. It’s indispensable.
