Rescue dogs have had a history, and they are trained in a different way. If you happen to be a person who is planning to adopt a rescue dog you will have to know certain things before your adoption. Adopting a puppy and a rescue dog is not the same thing. Adopting a rescue dog does not require house training, crate training, etc. The following are some of the tips you can use if you are going to train a dog:
Dog training is a big investment:
Training a dog can be useful in many ways. You are basically teaching them how to be better at things you want them to do. If you have enough experience to train a dog you can do it by yourself otherwise it is better to take your dog to a professional trainer who can train your dog. When your dog is put with other dogs that are getting trained they will be able to get a better bonding experience and cope up better with the entire training process.
Reward your dogs:
You cannot train your dog without giving it a reward. Bring a treat which your dog likes the most and give it to it when it has done what you have asked it to do. Try not to feed your dog before the training as they might not be satisfied with the treats that you give them.
Do not do anything which will make your dog too tired before the training:
Your dog has to be active before the training so that they will be able to grasp and do everything they are asked to do. If you take them for long walks or play with them for too long right before the training, they will become too tired, and they will not be able to concentrate properly.
Practice is the key:
To get better at something you have to keep giving practices to your dogs until it becomes good at it. When you are at home, you can check if your dog actually responds to what is being taught at the training.
You are being trained as your dog is being trained:
Always remember that as your dog is being trained, you are being trained too. You need to know which command to give your dog to do a particular thing. It is as if you are learning a new language. It is better that everyone in your family who will be around your dog to learn the commands which are to be given to the dog.
Dogs are the most loving creatures in the world and can be trained to do many things, but you need to be patient to get the result. Dogs need practice and a lot of training to learn things. So you will have to be patient and wait till your dog learns.
