Consistency Is Key To A Well Behaved Dog

Posted on September 30, 2012 by Barb

I know this is a rather short article, but there isn’t much to say except YOU MUST BE CONSISTENT WHEN TRAINING YOUR DOG OR PUPPY!

Consistency IS  Key: When you give your dog a command, you must follow through. Sit means sit now. Not “Maybe you’ll sit for me later”. Sit Now.

There are many animals in shelters who could have been easily trained early on, whose owners used inconsistent training methods, or, most commonly, had good intentions, but just never got around to training their puppy. Many wonder why their puppy grew up to be such an out of control dog when other peoples’ dog, same breed, is so well mannered.

That cute little ball of energy could grow to be a disastrous big ball of energy if that energy is not focused properly. Training and exercise are proper ways to divert that energy and turn your puppy into a well-mannered and sound minded dog.

You and your dog will be much happier in the long run if you either train your puppy now, or if you get a puppy who is already trained. If you decide to train your own puppy, remember: 8 weeks is not too early to start simple commands, and it is never too late! You can teach an old dog new tricks!
