Some Basic Dog Training Tips

Reward good behavior.

Never ignore or punish good/desirable behavior!

Never reward bad behavior!

Do not let your dog ignore a command yet do not punish your dog if you call him/her to you.

Correct and show your dog what you want him/her to do in a calm, assertive manner.

If you are not serious in enforcing and showing correct form of a command just do not do it period. Why teach your pup something if you are not going to follow through?

Develop the proper use of timing. If your dog did something bad 20 minutes ago why punish now? The moment it happens the moment you correct. Simple. Make time to train your dog no excuses! If you cannot maybe you should not have a dog?

Do not blame a sick dog for behavioral issues...refer to a veterinarian to rule out medical issues.

If you think your dog has psychological issues such as anxiety, fears, aggression, etc. please refer to a professional dog trainer and always get second, third etc. opinion.
Interupt the behavior you want to change. Peeing on the floor? Put outside immediately. Barking? Telling them immediately to be quiet or whatever training aid you need to correct behavior.
