Basic Dog Obedience Training

Dog obedience training gives you a method to get your dog under control quickly. It also allows time for mental stimulation, socialization and bonding. Obedience training includes direct commands such as sit, stay, come, down, among others. The general methodology is to use a food treat to lure your dog into the desired position. Then as soon as your dog approximates the desired behavior, you give him the treat and lots of praise. You continue training but ask for more precise performance of the behavior before you give him the treat. Delay the time before delivering the treat so he is truly performing the behavior well. Gradually reduce and then eliminate the treat in the process so your dog performs the desired behavior with your command and praise alone. Never punish or yell at your dog while he is learning.
