Here boy, c'mon, sit boy, sit! Roll over, beg, c'mon boy beg! Remember those days? Or perhaps you're just getting started with training your puppy. Most dog training, obedience training, and specialized training is the dream of many a dog owner, but many give up on their idle pooch half way through. All the dog training collars and other dog training equipment is useless, unless you know what you're doing. But dog training, dog handling, and producing a well behaved Rover is easier than you might think. All you need is the know-how and that's where good dog training books come in handy.
When you are training a new dog, it is best to face reality: most of us are not the Dog Whisperer. Dog training books can help new owners train their young pet’s good behavior skills from the first step instead of dealing with bad behavior later. They also help frustrated owners whose relationship with their pets is strained because of behavior issues.
These resources are invaluable tools for owners with young pets that need to learn how to behave in new surroundings or dogs that have separation anxiety (i.e.: chew on furniture when they are left alone). Owners also struggle with issues like aggressive behavior, house training, establishing who is the Alpha, or dominant personality in the home and setting boundaries.
Regardless if you are a new pet owner or you raise canines on a professional level, there are many training resources available to you. Dog training books range from general training to behavior problems to specific methods. Once you make a decision about what type of training you need for your pet, you can then focus on resources that will help you reach that goal.
It’s extremely important to utilize resources that are easy to use and effective. For example, a training book on The Clicker Method rewards dogs with treats when they follow commands. Other methods on which dog training books are produced are The Dog Whisperer Method as well as the Positive Reinforcement Method. Both of these methods exercise training tools that promote non-violent owner treatment while training your pet.
Some people just can't manage the time, commitment and most importantly, the patience required to fully train a dog to how they would like it to behave. Although some put their animals into dog training schools, I personally believe that the pet's owner should be directly involved in the training. A bond between you and your crafty canine needs to be established as soon as possible, therefore, dog training classes which teach you to teach your dog are the best way to go, and what's more, becomes a very rewarding experience.
It is always to your benefit to review the basics of training methods before you decide which method to use. Consider your dog’s personality and how a specific type of training might work for him or her. Sticking to a less structured training regime and buying a variety of dog training books may not be what your dog needs to learn. Online tools are also available with reviews of dog training books and tips on how to get more results from them. This could serve as a great resource in determining what book should be used to train your pet.
Whether you bring home a puppy or a full-grown dog, it is important to have a plan in place. In a new home with new owners a dog will require some form of training so that everyone can coexist peacefully. There are several dog training books on specific methods available to help train your pet. If you stick to one method of training, be certain to research it and know what other owners and your veterinarian think about it. If your dog needs training in certain areas, choose a method that focuses on particular types of behavior. Whatever your preference there is a large variety of dog training books available to assist you with making a dog a wonderful addition to your family.
There's no need to get angry with the playful puppy or mature mongrel if he or she is showing signs of disobedience or lack of understanding, as this could develop into a strained relationship between you both. The whole idea of having a dog in the first place is to bring a little extra love and joy into the house so if what you are doing is not working, go grab one of the great dog training books out there and start again. Using dog training books to teach your pet pooch, gives some great reference material and guidelines to follow. Good luck!
