Dog training quick tip

by k9perceptionblog

This is a quick tip that may help you with dog obedience training. Dogs focus on body language first and verbal communication second. Try to pay attention to your body language and see how your dog reacts to different things you do. A lot of behaviors a dog may pick up are what they interpreted you to want. Jumping up is a huge one. Once you’ve discovered what you are doing to cause the pup to behave a certain way you can begin to change that and teach the dog to react differently in the future.

If you should ever have other dog training needs keep us in mind and give us a call. We are your dog training experts in Jacksonville Florida. After you talk with us you’ll know why.

A few steps to remember while dog training

by k9perceptionblog

Dog Training Tip: This is a few simple steps to follow when training your dog for any command.

1) give the command and lure the dog into position using a treat. Once your dog is in the desired position praise with good and release command. Repeat until the your dog is consistently going into position

2) Increase the duration your dog stays in the position before released. This is will help build your dogs focus

3) As you increase the duration of your dog staying gradually increase the distance you are from your dog while they are in stay.

4) introduce small distractions such as setting a toy on the ground or squeaking a toy. Eventually increase the temptation of the distraction such as tossing a toy next to your dog. This will build impulse control and help with calming your dog down.

If you keep in mind these four steps it should help you keep a more systematic approach to dog training.

Dog training tip

by k9perceptionblog

As dog trainers we see and help train a lot of different dogs using all kinds of techniques depending on the dog. All of our dog training techniques do involve a large focus on impulse control. Impulse control can teach dogs not to be so reactive to different stimuli. To train impulse control you start with basic stay training. Once your dog can stay for a small duration move on to distraction training. Have your dog do a stay command and introduce a small distraction. More than likely your dog will flench in attempt to go after the distraction. A dog with good impulse control would hardly react where a dog with poor impulse control may would break after it. Use the rule of repetition to change the dogs reaction to this stimuli. Overtime your dog will learn impulse control and become calmer in general.

The rule of repetition

by k9perceptionblog

When owners are doing training exercises with their dogs we find a lot of times they don’t repeat the exercise enough to teach the dog what’s expected of them. During your dog training lessons you should repeat each step approx. 50 times before moving to the next step. You may need to repeat more or less depending on the dog but that’s a good number to start.

Dog training ideas in savannah ga

by k9perceptionblog

Savannah Georgia is an awesome place to have a dog. With numerous parks, a dog friendly downtown, and the beach just a few miles away there’s always something to do with your dog. Unfortunately lack of socialization or training can keep a lot of these opportunities from happening. With the proper dog training you and your dog could enjoy everything savannah has to offer. When you’re out in public with your dog try to encourage them to stay focused on you. We see it way to often owners allowing their dogs to investigate everything they come across. This just adds to the lack of focus and hurts training efforts. With our dog training headquarters just outside of savannah georgia we would be glad to do a consult and set up a training plan to show you how to bring out your dogs full potential.
