Wilmington North Carolina Dog Boarding
The trainer that works in our Wilmington North Carolina dog boarding facility is very keen on keeping records. He is a stickler on this point. He always says that you should keep track of your training and keep detailed notes. It is vital not only so that you can see where you are going. But also you can periodically go back and review to see where the problems are. What methods work best for your dog and the things which maybe need adjustment? Even if he is getting it right a hundred percent of the time. Remember that as with humanssometimes forget and need constant reminders of what is right and wrong. If your dog is displaying undesirable behavior then look for a way to control this and offer him a desirable alternative and then reinforce this alternative. When offering alternative behaviors remember the following; don't offer an alternative that is complicated or complex. Offer simple one step alternatives if possible. Behaviors like Sit or Stay are easy for the dog to reproduce and easy for you to reinforce. Make the alternative something that is incompatible with the undesired behavior. Practice in every opportunity to give your dog a better chance of success. Some breeds of exhibit certain genetically imprinted behaviors. The problems arise when this behavior is counter productive. Getting a Dalmatian to change his spots is never an easy task, but with the training techniques you have already learnt and with patience and a lot of repetition. It is possible to replace the old imprinted behavior with the newer desirable behavior.
