The essentials of training dogs

Induction refers to the use of food items and their own actions to induce certain actions by the dog to establish a means of conditioned reflex. When using the induction method, be sure to grasp the timing and do not always use it. This technique is used more often when training young dogs and some quiet, less excited dogs. For some excitable dogs this method is used sparingly. The advantage of this method is that the dog is more excited and natural, especially for the "smell" and the identification training.


Force is a training method that forces the dog to make a smooth and accurate action by threatening the tone of the tone and mechanical stimulation. This method is often used in the early stages of dog basics training. When entering the training of complex environments, due to the temptation of various new stimuli, dogs often fail to complete the instructions of the trainers as required. At this point, mechanical stimuli and passwords with threatening tones should be combined to force the dog to make the correct action. This means must be combined with rewards. Trainers should be rewarded immediately whenever the dog is forced to make an accurate action. The rewards mentioned here can be food or spiritual. For example, the dog's verbal praise and gently touch, etc., this can alleviate the dog's nervousness. This method is suitable for dogs that are more tolerant. For those dogs with strong sensitivity, especially those with timidity, pay attention to their adaptability when using forced means, otherwise it will be counterproductive.


Prohibition is a training method used by trainers to effectively stop the bad behavior of dogs. The method is that the trainer sends a "no" password with a threatening tone. If it is combined with mechanical stimulation, it will have a better effect. For example, when a dog bites a piece of furniture or devours a foreign object, the trainer must use a mechanical stimulus from the jerk to suppress the "no" password when using a threatening tone. After repeated use in this way, when the dog hears the "no" password again, the action required by the trainer can be completed according to the password even without pulling the dog. Pay attention to the use of this method. When issuing a "no" password, the tone must be threatening, and the attitude must be serious, but the trainer must never slap the dog. When the dog completes the action according to the password, the trainer should immediately give a reward.


Rewards are a means of strengthening the proper movement of a baby dog and consolidating the ability to develop. The content of the reward can be food, or it can be a “good” password issued by the trainer or the trainer. In the early stages of the training program, in order to quickly form a conditioned reflex, the dog should be affirmed and rewarded for each accurate action performed by the dog. This kind of reward is mainly food or pat. It is best for the trainer to combine the “good” password when rewarding the dog, so that the “good” password will have a signal after repeated iterations, thus becoming a reward means.
