Introduction to Training
Train your dog is essential not only for his well-being. A well trained dog is a happy dog. Theories related to dog training have evolved much over the years, and the method currently and mostly accepted is positive reinforcement, which is to praise and reward the dog when adopting the right behavior.
Training is a rewarding experience for you and your dog. Your dog aspires only to please you. Training is often great fun for both the dog and its owner.
There are several training methods. You may decide to do without outside help or join a training class that will suit your dog’s education effectively.
These days, all agree that the best way to train a dog is to use positive reinforcement methods that reward good behavior rather than punishing the bad ones - it's easier on the dog and also much more effective.
This method without violence is based on positive reinforcement, through play, reward and motivation. If the dog is well behaved, responds to a command, reacts positively, he will associate good behavior with positive results. He will repeat the good ones. Conversely, if a good behavior is ignored, the dog will give up this type of behavior.
The most important thing to remember when you train your dog is to be consistent. Essentially, the dog must know its name, since you will precede your commands with his name to get his attention. Always use the same command to generate a given behavior. We must avoid confusing your dog.
The Canin Language
The canine language lies in the postures and movements of the dog. It is you companion’s way of communicating with you and with others dogs. To communicate well, it uses different calming signals. Thanks to the calming signals, we are more able to understand the dog and to put ourselves in his place.
The calming signals allow the dog to show his discomfort (fear, stress, lack of understanding of expectations, unusual situation, disturbing presence, stress, etc.). They enable him to face his discomfort and soothe the other in order to avoid possible conflicts. In short the calming signals are an integral, fundamental view of the canine language. They are the basis of the canine politeness when two dogs meet. The calming signals allow us to understand our animal.
It is important to understand our dog when we speak. If we knew more about calming signals, we would be able to avoid many bites.
