DOG TRAINING HELP
AMAZING K-9 OBEDIENCE TERMINOLOGY
Learn dog training techniques that work in real life!
The command no must be taught as a basis for all training. Whenever this command is given, it means for the dog to stop doing whatever he is doing. A leash and choke chain should be on the dog when the command is given and a sharp, quick jerk should be given at the same time as the NO. Do not reach for the dog. Always reach for the leash.
The dog’s shoulder should remain no more than 6” away and no closer than 4”parallel to the side of your hip.
Meaning to walk off starting with the left foot first – at the same time, giving the dog a gentle bump on the shoulder with the left foot – at the same time giving a gentle jerk & release on the choke chain while giving the command to HEEL.
The dog should be sitting with rear legs placed directly under him and facing the same way as the owner. (Do not let the dog move.) Lift up the lead and push down on the dog’s rear end. Say “sit’. To perform a sit from a down position, start off with your right palm facing the dog at ground level. Then bring your hand in front of the dog’s face to the leash above his head and lift the dog quickly into a sit position, with a command to SIT.
To remain stationary. The hand command for stay is to bring your left hand around behind the dog’s head, and then in front of the dog’s nose. At the same time, give the command to STAY. The dog should remain in the position he was in at all times. If the dog should move, he should be placed back EXACTLY in the same position he was in.
Down is the heel position – to lay down with all four legs facing forward under the dog’s body and head. The hand command is to take your right hand from your left cheek down in front of the dog’s nose grabbing the lead and jerking down and forward toward the ground. Say “Down, stay”, and give verbal and physical praise when the dog minds.
Come with dog in sit-stay or down-stay position: Place the lead in your left hand and with the right hand extended; palm facing the dog horizontal to the ground, bend at the elbow, bringing your hand to your chest. At the same time tell the dog to COME, giving a jerk towards you on the lead and pulling the dog toward you. This should end with the dog sitting in front of you, facing you.
With the dog sitting in front of your and facing you, give your dog the HEEL command. (1) At the same time, rock back on your right foot, swing him around to your right side, behind you, and then to your left side. The dog should be sitting next to you, facing forward in the HEEL position OR (2) At the same time, rock back with your left foot, pull him back and away from you, swinging him into the HEEL position.
Housebreaking a dog or puppy is a simple process. There are several different methods. However, tremendous success can be had with the following method, which I recommend.
One of the best and fastest ways is to buy a Vari Kennel or Wire Crate to fit the size of your pet.
The Crate or Kennel has many uses during the course of your pet’s life such as sickness, traveling, and whelping and most animals grow to love their little get-a-way.
The feeding and watering of the animal is based on the owner’s schedule and personal circumstances.
Here are some basic steps that should be followed:
REMEMBER: Puppies are like small babies. When they are woken up, they will have to relieve themselves and should be taken to the area where they are expected to go. The same applies at feeding time. When fed, they will have to relieve themselves. A puppy will not understand that he is to relieve himself in the potty area so you may have to wait. You can also place a tie out to keep him there while you go do other things. Be sure to return often and if he has relieved himself, praise him.
(NOTE: Your dog should become used to a leash by allowing him to drag it around with him only when you are there.) You may then take him on a leash for the next 4-5 days. After that, you should be able to walk the puppy to the area without a leash.
Serves as dog’s den, or safe place. Because it’s her sleeping spot, she won’t want to soil it by pottying there. It’s important because it teaches the dog to want to control her bladder and bowels.
Stick to a Schedule
Important – Separate playtime and potty time from your dog’s mind:
Take her out to do one or the other, not both at the same time. She needs to learn to get down to business right away when it’s potty time. One way to facilitate that is with praise:
As soon as she starts to pee or poop, verbally praise her! When she’s finished, praise her even more verbally and with pets and ‘good girl’.
Feeding meals on a regular schedule will also help your dog regulate the need to eliminate. We recommend giving meals at specific times of day rather than leaving food out all the time. Take up her food & water, if left over, before her last time out for the evening, before bedtime.
