Every good boy has to start somewhere. This is why many dog owners and trainers have adopted positive reinforcement training as their primary method.
Positive reinforcement training rewards your dog for any good actions they do, usually with treats or play. A key part of this method is ignoring unwanted behaviour rather then shunning it. The idea that these actions will encourage your dog to learn and be excited about doing so rather then make them fearful of doing wrong.
“It also helps bonding between owner and pet, making them more of a team” said Cait Stewart, a local dog trainer. Stewart praised positive reinforcement “when you start out take what you can get. If you ask for a sit and get a lie down thats fine, get them excited about learning with you.”
The method has shown results in all dogs whether they are puppies or older dogs. “I said I would stop training my dog when he stopped wanting to learn, He’s 3 now and is still learning new things everyday and so am I” Stewart said.
It seems that with the right type of training any crazy K-9 can become a perfect pup.
