Five Key Ingredients
to Training Success
he continuance of an effect - do not give up. Don’t think your puppy or dog is too stubborn to train. All dogs improve and eventually learn: some may take more effort. Start your puppy early! Don't wait! In fact, "the risk of a dog dying because of infection with distemper or parvo disease is far less than the much higher risk of a dog dying (euthanasia) because of a behavior problem." - Robert K. Anderson, DVM, Diplomate of American College of Veterinary Preventive Medicine and Diplomate of American College of Veterinary Behaviorists.
To take and maintain a stand or make a firm request. Make sure your dog complies with your request. In other words, if you ask your dog to sit, he has to sit, if you ask him to come, he should come.
Conformity with previous practice, same principles and practice. This means everyone in contact with your puppy or dog need to train using the same methods. It is important that all family members verbalize, or signal the same cues and utilize the training methods the same so the puppy will learn.
Having endurance or perseverance in the performance of a task. Your task is to teach your puppy or dog. They are not pre-programmed, they have "dog behaviors" and we want them to "act like a human" in regards to manners or behaviors. So, teach your puppy or dog the ways of our world.
The act of transmitting, giving information, signals or messages. You task is to communicate wit your puppy or dog and teach them what you want them to learn. Don’t focus on what you don’t want, but rather what do you want. Communicate so your dog understands - yelling, striking, and physical abuse are not communication.
