It is very important to know what are the hobbies of your dog, and make it clear from the beginning what we expect of him, what should and what should not do. The master must decide what the policies of your home in this regard: if you can get on the chairs, if allowed to come to the table at meal times, jumping for joy on people, dig in the garden, nibbling objects or carpets and a long list of attitudes which are so fond of dogs. All this can be easily remedied if a coach or love it corrected itself from the beginning.
One of the hardest parts of teaching is where the animal is expected to do his business. A dog does not learn this, often ends confined in a yard or in an animal shelter.
The optimal age to start. – In practice there is no age at which the dog can start to learn something, but this should happen naturally since a puppy. From the first days together, after they have acclimated, both with respect to not defecate indoors or chew the furniture, such as establishing a relationship of trust game-take the puppy to recognize in the owner to his master, who has to offer innate affection and obedience.
Seriousness, patience and perseverance. – At any age and at any stage of training should be adopted, along with a good dose of seriousness, patience and perseverance, what is called ‘positive reinforcement’, i.e. in the form of caresses prizes, cookies and play, and ‘negative reinforcement’, they are not real punishment, but rather unpleasant experiences or situations that the dog will suffer in case of lack of obedience. The use of the latter is very sensitive because, if misused, could compromise the balance of the dog or even the work already done. Only be used, therefore, in special cases and under the watchful guidance of experts.
