Avoid the most common mistakes in dog training.

Problematic behavior in a four-legged friend is usually related to incorrect dog training. How you can recognize typical mistakes and avoid them reveals the following tips.

Constant barking, begging, disobedience, and rebellious behavior are usually the result of inadequate dog training. Common mistakes include inconsistency and lack of clarity.

Mistakes in rewarding and punishing

A common mistake in dog training is misusing rewards and punishing too harshly. After all, you don’t want the dog to get scared of you or feel insecure about you. Try to train your dog primarily by rewarding correct behavior. The praise and treat should be given to your pet immediately so that he can associate it with the desired behavior. However, if he thinks that he will just be rewarded arbitrarily, he will not know what is expected of him and get used to undesirable quirks.

Punishments should only be used in extreme emergencies, and even then, don’t use any that could hurt, harm, or intimidate your dog. Clearly say “no” and couple that with an unambiguous gesture. If you were playing with your dog, stop it immediately so that your four-legged friend knows that his behavior means that it’s time to stop playing.

Avoid lack of consistency and clarity in dog training.

Of course, dogs, especially puppies, are adorable – it is tough to resist the doggy eyes. Nevertheless, it would help if you did not allow your four-legged friend to misbehave once in a while and then not again. Inconsistency is a common mistake in dog training and confuses the animal. Thus, it does not learn rules because it does not understand exceptions. This means that either the dog is always allowed to sleep on the bed and cuddle on the sofa, or it never is.

Another typical mistake is ambiguous communication in dog training. Make sure that the commands’ body language and verbal signals always remain the same. Your charisma and behavior must correspond to what you want to express and convey to the animal. Otherwise, the result is similar to the inconsequence: the dog does not understand what you want from him.
