Dog Kennel Training
Dogtraining as with all training is better taught with love than with punishment. Training teaches appropriate behavior but punishment is a response to bad behavior. You also can't control what your dog learns when you use punishment as a training technique. Punishment is not a good way to fix behavioral problems because it only puts an end to a bad behavior but without showing a desirable one. When the punishment is administered the undesirable action has already occurred and can't be undone anyway. When you punish your dog for something, you are conditioning them to expect something negative. For example if your dog jumps on your children and you punish him or your child punishes him he will begin to associate children with something bad. Obviously you don't want your family dog to learn this. If you are spending time training your dog to be social and friendly and then punish him for exhibiting this very trait, confusion will definitely result or worse. For punishment to be effective at all, it must be administered when the undesirable behavior commences. Most pet owners just aren't able to do this. Even if you were able to punish at the correct time, your dog is usually over stimulated at that moment and therefore unable to process and understand the reason for his punishment. Also the moment your dog ceased his inappropriate action you would then need to reward him. It is the correct action, which you want him to perform after all, and for him to learn this he must be taught. To train a dog it is necessary to repeat, repeat, and repeat. If your dog has a bad habit then it is that much more important for you to reinforce the new action that you want him to perform. Overall if you don't offer him an alternative to his bad behavior he will misunderstand the reason for the correction and draw his own conclusion as to what it is you want him to do.
