Thus, if you want your dog to choose a certain action, you must first imitate (or rather illustrate) it to him, and then reward him (with affection) when he behaves appropriately, while punishing him (with attention deprivation) when he fails to behave appropriately. Simply gazing lovingly at the dog is a way of ‘rewarding’ him or her with attention. Petting him or her is another way to get his or her attention. Another way to show your dog that you care is to praise him or her verbally. True, the dog will not understand the words, however he or she will be able to detect the feelings behind them. That ability appears to be possessed by dogs. Have a look at Los Angeles puppy training to get more info on this.
Meanwhile, if your dog was loving your attention when doing something right and you take it away the moment, he or she begins doing something wrong, he would immediately notice the reaction and make the correlation between his misbehaviour and the lack of attention. In order to reclaim your affection, he is prone to correcting the action. These methods are especially effective if the dog you’re trying to train is still a puppy.
It is later discovered that some of the people who are left with the belief that their dogs are untrainable are those who try to teach their dogs certain things too late in their lives. When the dogs struggle to pick certain skills, they are branded as boneheads, despite the fact that it is the trainer’s fault for not initiating training sooner. The proper application of rewards and punishments as a key to dog training success.
When we get down to the nitty gritty of dog training, it becomes clear that only the proper use of rewards and corrections will transmit and ingrain different skills and habits in dogs. The most valuable gift you can give a dog is your time. Deprivation of treatment, on the other hand, is the most severe correction/punishment you can administer to a dog.
