Step 1: Illustrate Your Command Rightly 

This is the first step in any dog training session. The first thing you want to do before doing anything else is to show your dog what you are asking. Given that a dog will never be able to understand your language, you need to use illustrations.  

If you are asking the dog to sit for instance. You need to gently nudge its bottom to the ground to help it understand exactly what you need. To do this in an even much better way, you can bring in a second person to help you out with the process.  

The person can go to the ground to give the dog a clear picture of what exactly you are asking it for. This way, you will be able to move with the dog training in a much better and easy way. Failing to do so as a requirement will definitely make this process somehow complicated for you.  

2: Make Sure You Show Off The Treat 

 Once you are done with the first step, this is the next step which should come in next. At this level of training, you need to use positive reinforcement. You need to ensure that the dog will receive the treat as you put it to him or her.  

At this training level, you can use something a dog loves and that which a dog does not have every day. For you to get your training home, you need to make sure that the dog is excited. Also, you need to ensure that the dog is excited about the entire training process.  

When you make a command to the dog, you need to make your treat very clear to the dog. With the excitement and the treat, you will be able to move with the training swiftly. This way, the whole training will be much easier for you.  

3: Get Excited About The Whole Process 

Once you realize the dog is learning what you are asking it to do, get excited about the whole process.  The excitement which comes out of this process will not just be fulfilling to you but the dog as well. By getting excited about this entire process, you will even find the motivation to get going with the process.  

4: Make Sure To Repeat Everything Many Times 

 

By now you know for a fact that training a dog is not an easy thing by any means. Dogs learn yes but they do not do so at the same pace as human beings. As such, you need to find ways of making sure that the dog grasps everything you teach it.  

To do this, you need to keep repeating whatever you are teaching the dog. This is the only way you can make sure that your dog understands everything the dog is taught. The trick in all this is to make sure that the dog masters everything perfectly fine and for many years.  

Step 5: Decrease The Attention To The Dog 

When training your dog you need to ensure that the dog is mastering everything you train it on. To do this, you need to decrease the attention you give to the dog as you monitor it. As you do this, you will be able to tell whether the dog is mastering the trick or not. 

You can reduce the enthusiasm with which you carry out the whole training process. Do this gradually and try to reduce on the commands to ensure the dog is well taught. However, if you realize that your dog is not grasping whatever you are teaching it properly then you can go back to full training.
