How To Train Your Dog To Listen To You…Always

You have gone through all the work of figuring out the best dog for you and finding a healthy dog. You are busy with housetraining. But your dog still doesn’t pay much attention to anything you say. What are you doing wrong? What words should you be using? What exactly should you train your dog to do or not to do?

These are all common questions from dog owners. Subscribe the The FREE Dog Training Mini Course to learn what you should teach your dog.

Teach Your Dog to Obey Your Commands

Most people want their dogs to walk “nicely” on a leash. It is essential that your dog come when called. Staying when told is also very helpful. But how do you teach your dog to do those things?

The key to success is understanding how the dog mind works, and then incorporating that with proven training techniques, a few training aids, and consistent training. Dogs do not understand every word in the human language. Instead, they learn a few words that they are told repeatedly and associate with a specific activity. For example, your dog may recognize the word ‘out’ and associate it with going outside. However, if you change the word you use, he will no longer understand what you want. It is important that whatever word you choose to give as a command, you stick with that same word each and every time.

A word that often confuses dogs is ‘down’ because people use it to mean ‘lie down’ which is the correct usage. However, the dog also often hears it with the meaning of ‘get off the couch’ or ‘don’t jump on people’. Worse is when the word ‘down’ is used to mean all three things.

Consistent training in this situation means that you would use ‘down’ to mean only ‘lie down’ and nothing else. If you want your dog to get off the couch, you would use the command ‘off’ rather than ‘down’ and if you want your dog to quit jumping on people, you would use a command like ‘floor’ or ‘no jump’ instead of ‘down’.

Do you Know about the Alpha Dog?

Before you can even begin training your dog, your must establish that you are the "Master" and he is the follower. In some breeds you will need to work every hour of every day to remind your dog that you are the Alpha Dog or Pack Leader (for example, Doberman Pinscher) while in other breeds (for example, Golden Retriever) you will only need to establish your “leader-follower” relationship at the beginning of your relationship.

Each dog will be individual in his or her training. Always try to remain calm and patient with your dog and remember to praise and reward him every time he does something correctly.
