Dog Training

Posted August 24th, 2010 by gemainz

Dog training is the exploit of teaching a dog to exhibit certain wishd behaviors in specific circumstances. Some examples are:

* Teaching a dog primary obedience commands (part of obedience training)
* Teaching a dog to suffice tricks casually or for circus acts
* Teaching a guide dog to lead the blind
* Teaching a rescue dog to find victims of a disaster
* serving a hunting dog learn to perform its cancel behaviors at appropriate times

The specific behaviors taught in each case are different, but the underlying principles are similar.

In the wild as pack animals, canines have natural instincts that favour training. These instincts are manifested when the dog lives with humans as a desire to please a handler, as a dog would please senior members in a pack in the wild. The handler is simply whoever is working with a dog at the time.

Basic training

Most dogs, no matter their eventual innovative training or intended use of goods and services, live with multitude and therefore must behave in a way that makes them pleasant to have around and for their own safety and that of other people and pets. Dogs do not project out basic obedience on their own; it must be trained.

Basic training classes

Professional “dog trainers” usually do not train the dogs, but actually train the owners how to train their own dogs. Although it is also possible to send a dog away to a training school, the owner still must at some point learn what the dog has well-read and how to use it and reinforce it. Owners and dogs who attend class together have an opportunity to learn more or so each other and how to work together under a trainer’s direction. Training is most effective if everyone who handles the dog takes part in the training to ensure consistent commands, methods, and enforcement.

Formal training in classes is not always available until the puppy has completed all its vaccinations at around 4 months; however, some trainers offer puppy socialization classes in which puppies can enroll immediately after beingness placed in their permanent homes as long as disease risk is minimum and puppies have receieved initial vaccinations. In most cases, basic training classes accept only puppies who are at least 3 to 6 months old.
