Loving your dog does not mean you are willing to let him go hog wild on your possessions. With pets, it’s a bit more difficult to instill this appreciation for your property — especially if it appears particularly tasty to your dog. This guide will give you tips on how to keep your dog from chewing the things that you own.
If the dog doesn’t respond properly when training, don’t get mad at them. It is you who is the teacher, and they might not even know they are learning something. So, if teaching is not going well, admit to yourself that you might be the problem.
Whenever training a dog, don’t ever assume you won’t be bitten simply because you are supposed to be the “leader.” Untrained dogs may believe they are the leader and you are just a member of the pack. You have to prove to your dog that you’re the leader so he knows to follow your commands. If he questions your authority, he may bite you.
Dog training is something that you need to do every day. For example, have them sit before you feed them, put on their leash or even give them a rub. If you are consistently reinforcing your training, your dog will get used to hearing commands on a regular basis in any situation. Remember, you want your dog to follow the rules at all hours of the day and night, not just at certain times.
Keep goals realistic and stay patient. Previous owners may have allowed certain behaviors that you disapprove of, but they will take longer to train away. If such behaviors were handled during the puppy period, it may be far simpler to make the necessary adjustments.
In summary, you have to prevent your dog from negative behavior. This can prevent an injury to your dog and also save money and frustration for you. Follow the tips provided in this article and you should be able to effectively train your dog to stop unnecessary chewing.
