Training a new dog is a daunting task. However, training your dog is important not only for your pet's safety, but for other people's safety as well as your property's safety. For your sake and the dog's, you need to use positive techniques when you train him. Patience and consistency are key things to have in puppy training. Put aside some times every day to train your pet. Twenty to thirty minutes is fine, since that is the longest time they usually pay attention for. Your puppy will get bored and not be able to focus after 30 minutes.

If you are attempting to crate train your dog, remember that it is a multi-step process. When they are comfy with the open door, try closing it and feeding them treats via the wires. At first, leave the dog enclosed in the crate for only short periods of time, such as 10 seconds, and then gradually increase the duration. If you notice the animal becoming tense or confused, you are probably proceeding too quickly.

Get your dog the proper nutrition required for canine health. An unhealthy diet can have several negative effects on your dog. It can damage your dog's health and affect their behavior. Something as easy as proper nutrition can make a dog more obedient.

When house training your dog, keep in mind that whatever you feed him must come out. In order to foster routine toilet habits, give your dog good food between 2 and 3 times daily on a firm schedule. This will give you an idea of when to take your puppy out and lessen the chance of accidents.

When training your dogs, always use the same tone of voice and volume level when you give a command. This lets them know you're serious and that they must obey. It can also help the dog realize the distinction between disciplinary tones and other types of commands.

Whenever your dog jumps onto you, grab their paw and gentle squeeze to make sure they understand that jumping is not good behavior. As long as you gently squeeze their paws, you won't cause harm to your dog. Instead, you'll just give them an comfortable feeling. Soon your dog will believe that this will happen every time he jumps up and will stop jumping up.

Every day, try to allow your pet to have an hour or so of exercise. This is on top of regular training lessons and restroom breaks. A dog that is physically active and has the chance to exercise regularly is more capable of learning during training sessions. When your dog is exercised, he is also happy.

Bond with your puppy by making sure he learns his name before anything else. You will want to use his name quite frequently, so he learns it and will come to you when you use it. His name should be the first word he learns. Spend plenty of quality time with them, so that they know that they can trust you. A puppy that trusts you will respond better your training.

Your dog will behave well if you keep reinforcing your training. Puppy's aren't the only dogs that can learn. By reinforcing their behavior, you can ensure you dog will continue to obey. Also, by disciplining negative behaviors you can ensure your dog will be well behaved.
