A very useful basic dog training principle, positive reinforcement, is used by many trainers in effective ways with any canine. Many circumstances require the punishment of your dog. Sometimes, they do things wrong and they must know. Positive reinforcement should be then used to help continue from that point on. Almost every dog will respond to this technique. If you have an aggressive dog, you probably would not want to use punishment as this would make the situation worse.

Praise ‘Em Dogs
All dogs respond to something positive. Every time your dog does something good, they should be rewarded. If you really want to train your dog properly, only reward them once they have done something nice. Your dog simply will not understand if you give them too many treats. The “stay” command is very important, and it’s one of the most difficult things to teach your dog. All dogs like to follow their masters. It is part of their genetics. Sitting must be a command that your dogs understand before learning to stay. When the dog is sitting, you can begin to teach him to stay as you walk away from him. The dog, if it stays in one spot, should be rewarded with a treat. Repeat the process if your dog is not successful and do not punish it for not obeying. If you’re lucky, it may only take a few sessions to get your dog to “stay” on command.

If you have a dog who likes to dig up your yard, there are a few techniques that can help to curb this behavior.

In some cases, you may have to fence off the garden or other area that you don’t want your dog to dig up. The digging should actually occur in a specific area like a sand box designated for the dog. To make the dog happy, also include a few toys and bones that they can play with. Using these strategies, your dog will be able to dig, but will not get in trouble for doing so. It is a win-win situation.

A Loyal Friend You Have In There
