Dog Training Problems



Why Obedience Train Your Dog or Puppy ?
Obedience training is one of the best things you can do for your dog and yourself. Obedience training doesn't solve all behavior problems, but it is the foundation for solving just about any problem. Training opens up a line of communication between you and your dog. Effective communication is necessary to instruct your dog about what you want her to do. You can teach her anything from 'stay' (don't bolt out the door) to 'sit' (don't jump) to 'off' (don't chew the furniture). keep reading...

Training Your Dog Not to Jump Up on People
Jumping, leaping and bouncing are ways your dog shows affection and receives attention. Almost anything we do seems to train and reward the dog for jumping up. Our inconsistency creates the problem. Some of the time we tolerate the jumping and ignore it. Other times we reward the behavior by exchanging enthusiastic greetings. And other times, we get angry and scold the dog. keep reading...

Leash Training Your Dog
Most leash pulling begins as soon as the dog sees the leash and knows she's about to go for a walk. If the walk begins out of control, the precedent is set for the entire walk. Most dogs learn very quickly that they must sit while the leash is being attached to the collar. They usually tremble with excitement, ready to explode into a frenzy as soon as this phase is accomplished. If your dog bolts toward the door, dragging you behind, then the situation is still out of control. keep reading...

Training Your Dog to Come When Called
To many a dog, the command "come here" means, "quick, run the other way!" Your dog is always learning whether you are intending to teach something or not. Formal training sessions are usually short and infrequent compared to the day to day and minute to minute training ( or more appropriately - untraining ) we do with our dog. In order to correct this type of problem we must first be aware of how we unintentionally train our dog not to come when called. keep reading...

Training Your Dog to Stop Chasing Cars, Cats, Joggers, etc.
Chasing is an instinctive behavior in dogs. Dogs love chasing cats, joggers, bicycles, cars, other dogs and almost anything that moves. Moving objects stimulate dogs to chase.

Training Your Dog for Off-Leash Freedom
Asking when you can allow your dog to be off leash is not a whole lot different from the question, "When will you be able to let your son or daughter take your Porsche or Mercedes out for a spin with his buddies or her friends?" The answer can range from now to never. Different circumstances would dictate different answers as well. keep reading...

Training Your Dog to Stop Escaping and Roaming
Dogs that are isolated or confined for long periods of time can become bored and restless. They may try to escape to find entertainment elsewhere. The escape act itself may be a form of entertainment. Many dogs escape just for the fun and challenge of it. A happy, well-exercised dog will contentedly sleep the day away while you are not home. keep reading...

Training Your Dog to Overcome Shyness
It is natural for some dogs to be shy of things that are new and unfamiliar. Shyness in itself is not a problem.

Shy dogs often bolt when frightened, endangering themselves by running blindly into danger, such as traffic. keep reading...
