11. Be the leader.
Dogs naturally follow a leader in a pack. Thus, you have to establish being a leader, so that your pet would follow your commands. Establishing your dominance does not mean that you have to hurt your pet. One example of it is to show him that you are the one to eat first, before giving him his food.
10. Time your training sessions.
Always take note that in most cases, dogs can put their full attention to their masters for a period of 15 minutes only. Thus, there is no point if you are going to go beyond that time period in training your pet, since he may already lose his focus. With that, it is best to schedule short training sessions within the day, to make it more effective.
9. Get to know your dog better
There are certain times of the day when your dog is more active. For example, some dogs like to take naps during the afternoon; and, if that is the case with your pet, then you may want to train him in the morning or after his afternoon nap. It is best to train your dog when he is full of energy, so that you can pay attention to you more.
RopriPet Active Collar Review
I have a mastiff and as you may know they don't listen well and are so big that you can't do much if they don't want to listen to you.
My neighbor suggested I try this training collar out. He gave me his and I used it for a couple of days, read the instructions, which are super easy to follow and setup by the way.
Ultimately, IT WORKS! it really works! After just a few days of training my big boy is finally responding to commands and is actually learning to listen. I'm super happy.
I decided not to give it back to my neighbor (He was ok with that) but I have been telling friends and family about the great results im getting.
I have found peace.
8. Train your dog in a place free from distractions.
You have to take note that dogs can get easily distracted. In other words, if you want his full attention on the trick or task that you need him to perform, then you should make sure that you are doing it in a place free from distractions. Keep in mind that your other pets can distract him, as well as other people in your household.
7. Play with your dog.
Dog training should just be one of the things that you do in a particular day. In other words, do not do it for all the time that you spend with your dog. Play with him whenever you can, so that he can feel that being with you is not just all about learning new things, but having fun as well.
