Training Tips for Pets

February 6, 2018

As you know, different breeds are easier to train than others. An untrained pet starts with the pet parent. Keep that in mind when implementing a new training regimen. Bring your patience and understanding.

Here are a few quick training tips before you get started:

  1. Teach your pet his or her boundaries and stick with them.

  2. Reward your dog when he does something good.

  3. Bring your patience.

  4. Use authority when teaching your pet new tricks.

  5. Make it simple enough for your pet to understand.

  6. Be consistent.

  7. Keep it fun and enjoyable for everyone.

  8. Consider using a calming aid to help with stress and anxiety support, which can contribute to unwanted behaviors.

Keep these things in mind while training your dog or cat:

Start as soon as you can.
Depending on the age of your pet, he or she may have already established naughty behaviors. But there’s no better time to start training them than today. Of course it would be great if all pets were trained as puppies, but that’s just not the case. We can’t ignore our older pets!

Don’t blame the pet.
Try to remember that behavior issues with a pet are not necessarily their fault. Pets do not want to displease their parents. Give them proper training and see the amazing results. Even a stubborn pet can learn a few new things.

Have fun!
Proper pet training is important because it can be incredibly beneficial to you and your pets. It can also be very fun! It gives us the opportunity to bond with our pets, while teaching them important skills.

There are added benefits to spending time with your pets.
Spending extra time with your pet is always a wonderful thing and can be so much fun when you combine training with some play activities. Training and then taking part in agility competitions gives tremendous excitement to both you and your pet.
