Tips for dog house training

For all those frustrated dog owners: guys, remember a dog is not born knowing that your Persian carpet is not the acceptable place to do his ‘business’. Just like our kids, a dog needs to be taught to be ‘civilian’ and well mannered. The best way for proper training is to shower your dog with unlimited praise and limited gifts. Also learn to be patient and avoid harsh punishments while engaged in dog house training.

There are many different methods and techniques employed for dog house training. However most of the techniques focus on waiting until your puppy commits the ‘crime’. Well, the best approach is to train the dog prior to an accident occurring. This type of house training may not sound punitive in any fashion, but trust me this can be much more rewarding experience for both the owner and the dog.

It is advisable to start dog housetraining as soon as you have acquired the pet. Don’t bother about the age of the dog, because both the puppy as well as the adult dog can be trained equally. Naturally it would be much easier to train young ones as they are not yet exposed to bad behaviors than older ones who might have got imbibed to certain mannerism. The first lesson you need to teach your dog is housebreaking. I am not referring to teach them to break your house or your neighbor’s house during lost key situations, but to make them learn where and when he can do his business.

There are some basic assumptions you have to make while starting a doghouse training sessions. Assume that your doggie might need to relieve himself after a good nap or a meal. You should also ensure that you give him the opportunity to relieve himself by taking him for scheduled walks everyday and showing him his ‘places’. Eventually the pet will understand the importance of going out doors and might even start letting you know when they get bladder or bowel urges.

It is important to understand that dogs are great attention seekers. They love to grab the attention and praises of their owners. Hence while involved in house training your canine, shower them with praises in a positive and upbeat tone. When your dog performs a specific command, say ‘good’ the moment he or she exhibits the behavior and then follow up with cuddling and praises. By doing so, the animal will understand to exhibit the performed action on consistent basis to get the same appreciation.

There might be also situations when your dog, did relieve himself in unsuitable spots. It is wise to act immediately and handle it with a firm “no” that can inform the animal that this is not expected out of it. Show them the area they have used previously and later praise them when they identify the spot for next session. This will make them understand the fact that they have done something great in identifying the designated area and will continue to do so for your appreciation. This means that the more encouraging and positive you are with the dog house training, the harder you dog will work to ensure your satisfaction.
