The Canine Good Citizen Training:
We have now come to the final training level for your dog. This course is Strictly Meant for those dogs that have Completed All Previous Courses. The test is quite tough and can only be passed if your dog is really well behaved. This course can last for several weeks.
Keeping in mind, you should be able to decide the dog training course best suited for your dog. You may want to seek the opinion of a good dog trainer. Many trainers consult for free.
If you choose classes somewhere, realize you must be in the training courses with your dog, in order to understand how to handle him properly. Appreciating a well-mannered dog is something that a good owner can and should understand.
If you have just visited my blog, you might want to read up on the various levels of training that I have discussed. This will help you decide which level your pup should start off in.
Always keep in mind that dog training should have motivators, like prizes and rewards for positive results. Hitting and yelling at the dog for making a mistake or not quite “getting” it, is not a wise technique. It’s also cruel, your dog does Not know what he is doing wrong. Your job, as owner and “human”, is to teach with patience and understanding. Negative training leads to negative results. The training you assign your dog should always be a Positive experience with Positive Strategies!
It takes time to carry out Positive and Effective Training. It is not only worthwhile, but rewarding to train from the very beginning.
There are many techniques available and I strongly suggest that you research other blogs and articles on dog training to find what might work best for you and your pup.
In training, always keep your dog motivated when doing the right thing by rewarding with a treat. Dog training does not have to be hard if you use common sense. Again, if you do not have the stamina or the time, look into Professional Trainers or Local places that have classes for you and your pet. Training is important for both the happiness of your dog and for yourself.
