Advanced Dog Training
Once your dog has learned the basic orders, you can train him to walk by your side, bark when he has to, learn how to use his paws, bring objects and behave with children and other animals.
Remember that someare harder to train than others. Make the training as simple as you can, making sure that your dog has behaved properly with other and with people. You have to use collars and according to the size and temperament of your dog. Even though it is easier to train a puppy, an adult dog can also be educated, it just takes more time. The result in both cases will be an educated and reliable partner.
Control and Retention
When you are training your dog, and especially when you take him outside, it is vital to use an appropriate form of controlling him. Almost all respond very well to a semi-punishment collar, but with others, you have to use head collars and harnesses.
1. Make sure you put it on correctly; the soft band should go on the inner side of his throat, and the chain over the neck.
2. To fasten the collar, pull theupwards. This, almost always, controls the inadequate movements without hurting the dog. Don't use this type of collars on with a delicate trachea.
Improvised: Pass the in front of the dog's chest and fasten it close to his back. This way you will be able to grab the dog firmly if he gets scared or pulls away unexpectedly.
Body harness: With a correctly-placed harness the dog is controlled by means of the tension on the thoracic box.
The harness is adequate for breeds which have delicate tracheas such as the Yorkshire Terrier and for ones with muscular necks, like the Carlino.
