Dog Training Pros and Cons!

Dog Training Pros and Cons Colorado

When training your dog there are a few key things you will need to know. Now on a regular basis I would tell you to come on down and let us evaluate your dog. However, not this time. I am going to give you an inside scoop on the do’s and dont’s of training.


1-Always make sure your equipment is in serviceable order and used correctly.

2-Remember, it is good to confine your dog for about one hour prior to his/her training.

3-Keep your dog on a 6-20 foot leash when you are with him to develop an obedient attitude.

4-Treats should be small and semi-soft.

5-Your leashes are used to direct your dog as well as to correct them.

6-All training should be done with a positive attitude.

7-Only use your dogs name to get his/her attention.

8-Sometimes if you touch your dog while giving him a command, it will distract him/her.

9-Do not give your dog a command unless, you are prepared to follow through with making him/her react to the command properly.

10-Make sure you have your dogs attention before giving any command.
