new dog training
Training a dog whether it is a puppy or an older dog takes time.
The first commands that a dog needs to know are sit, stay, no, lie down and come.
Start with sit, then move onto stay, come and then lie down.
The no command may need reinforcement, but most dog learn this command with housebreaking.
It is important to be consistent and train the dog daily for about 30 minutes a day.
After training, there should be a little playtime.
Training a dog to sit, you will need a six-foot lead and some small dog treats.
Gently pat the dog's rear as you are saying sit. As the dog sits, reward him or her with a treat.
Walk the dog a few feet and repeat the command while gently pressing down on the rear. Then reward.
This training should be done every day for about a week until the dog knows and performs the command
