Obedience Training Tips

Tip 1

It's extremely rare to see fat canines of any species in the wild and this is because most animals have a refined ability to adjust their consumption of food to meet their energy requirements. In hot weather they eat less. In cold weather, when they have higher energy requirements, they eat more. Obesity in dogs is a man-made problem!

Tip 2

Restricting a dog to a life of luxury in a centrally heated home where he is fed like a king and allowed to sleep where he wants might sound like a recipe for canine contentment, but it carries the seeds of anxiety for two main reasons. 1st he is confined and this is "unnatural" for dogs. And 2nd he has to live with us and, although we are in many ways marvelous dog substitutes, we still unwittingly create conflict in his mind.

Obedience Training Rules

  1. Normal dogs can learn at any age up to the time their mental capacities start to deteriorate with old age.
  2. Dogs learn best through patience, repetition and with suitable rewards. Rewards must be given within seconds of the desired behavior. The same rule applies when correcting unwanted behavior.
  3. Intermittent rewarding of desired activity produces behavior that is more resistant to extinction.
