Basics of raising dogs
Each of us at least once in our life had to observe a situation when a puppy rushing from a leash walks its owner. The owner of the dog, resigned to his fate, dutifully runs after his pet. This situation often causes hidden smiles of passersby. How to make your four-legged friend grow a raised dog?
Usually, the education of the dog is based on the general principles of development applied to any breed. In fact, it is not. Each dog has its own character, and this character is divided into two components. The first part is the ability to learn new knowledge and the second, of course, the desire to learn.
Know that as soon as you brought this little fluffy ball home, you started raising your dog. We all know that in the wild, a squad of a family of canines lives in packs. It is also known that each pack has its own leader, who regulates the relationship of individuals, allowing the pack to survive in the predatory world. It is laid in your dog at a subconscious level, and it is very important in the first days of your acquaintance with your home life to let the young dog know who exactly is the leader here. Know, now your family is his pack. However, you do not need to dominate the pet. Give him the opportunity to find his own place. He should take you as a friend, for which the last word in the conversation. Only after this point you should try to establish friendly relations with the dog. If you failed to reach the point that was described in the previous paragraph, you should know that the result will be unpredictable behavior, frequent pranks, as well as the absolute unwillingness of your four-legged friend to accept any commands.
Of course, we all understand that a young, not experienced puppy, just starting to learn the world, quite ironically refers to commands like sit or give a paw. You need to understand that the dog is well able to perceive short commands, which you should not change to others in the process of training, otherwise the dog will begin to perceive them as something else. It is not necessary, for example, to change the command to sit while training the dog to sit on the command. I will explain why. Your dog does not perceive the word itself, but the set of sounds, and human speech itself is hardly interested in it. Try not to give the command strictly. This causes uncertainty in your four-legged. Know that instead of a harsh word, your student responds much better to a deep voice. Perhaps it is this that can explain the fact that the most successful combination of friend and caregiver is a man.
The team should be interesting to perform, so you need to use little tricks that will give your pet interest in the performance. For example, hold his favorite toy or ball in his hands. An example is often the team walk. The dog begins to understand it much earlier than the others, because this word begins to denote a certain degree of its freedom, namely the possibility of escaping from an apartment into a world full of smells and sounds.
Try to learn one rule, a young restless puppy, this is a ball of mischief, but not because of its uncontrollable nature. Your dog has just begun to learn the world and it will take quite a long time before he begins to understand what you can do and what not. Bear in mind that it is impossible to beat a dog at the stage of becoming a character, otherwise your dog will not be sure of himself even in the “cat disassembly” in the yard, and this is not the best guarantee that someday your dog will not give you any offense. If the child is guilty, try to explain everything to him in a calm deep voice using the emphasis on sounds. This will be a much more effective means than the usual slap in the face of a dog. And in conclusion of all the above, I want to say that this practice is tested on a dog that is the pride of our family, and wears the nickname Jean.
