You've welcomed a new furry friend into the family, and you can't wait to start training them.
Whether it's to do all kinds of tricks or you want to ensure you have a well-behaved canine, it's
not always straight forward. When it comes to training your four-legged friend, a lot of mistakes
Fear not, we're on hand with some of the most common mistakes so you can avoid them.
1. You're Focusing on The Negatives
If you're focusing on the negatives during training, it's not nearly as effective than using positive
reinforcement. Rather than reprimanding poor behavior, concentrate on recognizing the good.
While it will take a bit of practice, but it will pay off.
2. Training Sessions Last Too Long
Once you've seen some positive results, you should call time on your session. Just like us, your
dog will get bored if you drag out training sessions too long. Instead, train in manageable stages,
so it's more fun and useful for everyone.
3. You Stay in The Same Place to Train Your Dog
While you'll probably do the majority of your training at home, you should avoid limiting practice
to just one place. If you teach your dog to behave inside four walls, it's likely that as soon as they
get out into the big wide world, they'll have a much harder time paying attention
4. You're Using Your Clicker Too Much
Clicker training is pretty popular, and it can be a handy training tool when used correctly.
However, you must understand how to use your clicker before you start clicking away. If you're
not using it correctly, things can get pretty confusing pretty quickly.
5. You Rely on Treats Too Much
Granted, treats are a great way to keep your pup motivated and engaged. However, you should
vary your rewards. Rather than just limiting rewards to treats, use toys, praise and play to mix
6. You Repeat Commands Too Often
So, you're teaching your dog to sit, but it's not working. Instead of repeating the command over
and over until your canine sits out of boredom, you should try something else. Your dog needs
to be clear that the behavior should come directly after the command and stalling can undo this
7. You're Not Considering Your Dogs Personality
Even if you've trained a dog or dogs before successfully, it doesn't mean the same approach will
work for your new pup. Every dog has a distinct character and behavioral profile, so to find out
what will work, you need to be mindful of this. One size fits all is certainly not the case when it
comes to dog training.
8. You Lack Confidence
Lack of confidence is a straight-up weakness. As natural predators, dogs can sense any weakness
instinctively. So, with every command, you need to be confident.
