Week 3: Disciplinary Training Methods

download (1)

Like children, all dogs learn differently. In a perfect world puppies would come home pre-trained or easy to train in areas such as potty training and listening. However that is rarely the case. We must use positive reinforcement to encourage good behavior and stop bad behavior before it begins to negatively effect our own lives or the lives of those we interact with.

Positive reinforcement training is the most recognized and used in today’s society. Many pet parents will say that distraction training is the best method, but others believe that it causes the dog to be frustrated and leads to more serious aggression. Personally I have never used distraction training, mainly because my dog is very focused and is easy to train.

**Please ndownloadote there is not correct or incorrect way to train your dog. By simply enforcing basic good behaviors such as sit, down, off and quiet usually come natural to many dogs to pick up on**

This way we can keep everyone happy and healthy.


Thanks for reading dog lovers. Have a great week!
