Learning more about your dog
As you learn more about your dog you will be able to train him better. Spend some time with your dog before you begin training him and take note of his energy level, likes and dislikes, personality, limitations, things he does well and the things that motivate him. You might learn that he has different responses to things than what you had previously thought.Being willing to adjust your teaching methods to your dog's individual needs can be the difference between success and frustration.
Experienced dog trainers understand the simple truth that you get what you pay attention to. Help your dog to succeed by limiting his options and rewarding what he is doing right. Before you know it your dog will be well behaved, obedient and well loved by all.
