If your dog refuses to obey, they may not understand what you want them to do. Don’t worry, your dog is not stupid. The problem is probably yours.
You call your soul out, but your dog keeps playing? You say “sit” and he lies down? Then you have probably made one or more mistakes in dog training. We help you to identify your mistakes. This is the only way to avoid them.
The 7 deadly sins of dog training
- Avoid permanent sound effects in dog training
Your dog is not hearing impaired. If he knows the command, a single call is enough. Every additional word is superfluous and undermines your authority. If you keep saying “Here!” roar, he definitely won’t come. You keep telling him where you are and that you are waiting for him (or even following him?).
- Word and gesture should not contradict each other in dog training
Your dog interprets your facial expressions, your body language and the emphasis on your words – and combined. If your posture and your gestures do not match, you have lost. Whoever trembles with rage and “Come here” can wait a long time for his dog.
- Negligence and forgetfulness are taboo when it comes to dog training
If you were consistent in the beginning and now become careless because he “can” do it now, he has you. He won’t do anything anymore soon. The same is true if you fundamentally reward every good action with a treat. He will only want to work “against payment”.
- Multiple commands do not lead to the goal in dog training
The dog is lying down, you go back and keep saying “stay!” As soon as you fall silent, Waldi races after you radiantly. Because he has learned: only as long as the command sounds, he must not move …
- Command too early confuses the dog
He has moved away when you call “By foot!”. Possibly he heard it, but now it will only irritate him. “Hopp” commands are just as ineffective five meters before the trench. The dog cannot link the words to their meaning.
- Praise too late and the dog links the recognition to the wrong action
A good dog wants recognition for what he has done. But it takes time to get the treat out of your pocket. From the hectic pace, push it into the throat of the four-legged friend the moment he begs for it whimpering. He will probably always do the latter now.
- The internal clock and other appearances must be taken into account when training dogs
Your four-legged friend works perfectly in the dog place, at home he behaves totally wrong again. These are the reasons:
1.You have practiced too little outside, the dog believes that he only has to obey in the dog school.
2.You are consistent only in the course.
3.You motivate in the course with treats and toys, it should suddenly work outside without.
