Teaching your dog tricks, takes some time and effort but also the benefits for both of you are huge. As well as having the ability to amaze your friends with your pet’s brains (as well of course, as your skill as a leading dog trainer! ) ) , teaching your dog tricks helps you bond with your pet in lots of ways. Below are a Few Reason why it’s a Fantastic idea to start teaching your dog some tricks:

Calms boredom and destructive behavior – Training your dog to do tricks will let him constructively discharge his energy. If your dog is concentrated and busy, he isn’t ruining the couch or eating your shoes or telephone charger such as!
keep your dog’s mind sharp – like individuals, it’s excellent for puppies to keep their minds active and responsive.
Learning and acting tricks will help do this.

Better Behaviour – Your pet will be less difficult to control during vet check-ups, making yours along with your vet’s lives easier.
Give your dog a hobby – For all those rainy days if you can’t go for long walks, it is a terrific way to pass the time. Dogs want hobbies in addition to humans!
DO keep your training sessions quick; 10-15 minutes at the most. Your dog can get tired or tired by hearing the exact same command over and over again and again repeating the same action. The key is little and frequently – daily if at all possible.
DO, where at all possible, ensure your training sessions are done without outside distractions. Turn the TV and radio off and, even when you’re starting to teach a hint, simply have you and your puppy in the room.
DO use the same command throughout your puppy’s training; don’t chop and change. Even a slight difference e.g.’turn’ and’turn around’ could be quite confusing for your furry friend, so be consistent.

DO give your dog plenty of treats and praise when he gets it right.However do not underestimate the snacks after your dog has learnt the suggestion. Gradually phase out the treats so that you’re just using the controls, hand gestures (if appropriate) and praise.
DON’T try and teach your puppy a hint that might interfere with a health problem he has. By way of example, if your dog has back problems, then a trick such as rolling over might be too hard. In case you have any doubts at all don’t do it or consult your vet first.
DON’T induce your dog to perform tricks that he really doesn’t need to do; respect his or her limitations. And don’t punish your dog for not doing a trick properly; just keep focusing on it. Always remember that hints are for the enjoyment of both of you and it is not a rush to complete each trick.
DON’T talk too much during the practice sessions, otherwise your voice will start to have no impact and it all becomes a confusing babble of sound to your puppy.
DON’T think your dog is too old for tricks. If he’s healthy and doesn’t have any mobility issues, he will be fine. Wait till he’s mastered that until you attempt to teach him any tricks.
