Dog Trainers Need Fence

Dog Trainers Need Fence

The Association of Professional Dog Trainers designates January to be National Train Your Dog Month, a time for new dogs to learn the basic commands that are sought by dog owners. 

Training dogs at a young age helps dogs achieve animal wellness and will serve them well in the future. For starters, trained dogs appear smarter than non-trained dogs. Whether or not this is the case, trained dogs make dog owners happy knowing that their pets are listening and obeying. 

Training dogs stimulate their minds and help keep dogs healthy. Dog learning can be achieved through a variety of outdoor dog games and other teaching techniques that dog trainers can implement. Letting dogs roam around a backyard will teach them about their new surroundings; where to use [and not use] the bathroom; and will teach them basic dog commands.

Fencing in dogs is the best method for training a new dog.  A dog fence allows a dog to stay within a safe environment and will teach the dog to stay within the perimeters of a home.

Certified dog training professionals looking for dog fencing for their dog training facilities can contact for help.

Train Dog With Food

Train Dog With Food

Training dogs is important for teaching dogs right from wrong; and although there are many ways to train dogs, using dog food will surely trigger a response from your pup. Here's why it's okay to use food as a stimulus for dog training:

Positive Reinforcement

Who doesn't love food? Your dog is no different. Food as positive reinforcement works and will teach the dog that if they continue to listen and obey then they will get a treat. Instead of slapping newspaper on a dog's nose, use dry cereal or a dog treat to tell them that they did a good thing. 

Training New Dogs

Newly adopted dogs who are learning their surroundings should get a dog treat. This can be a small dog treat such as a carrot or biscuit. When your dog learns a new skill such as "sit" or "stop" then your dog can receive a bigger treat such as a slice of cheese or beef jerky.

 Using Food For Exercise

Food is not only useful for training but also for teaching dog exercises. As a dog trainer, when you ask a dog to "stand," fetch," or "jump," the dog is not only internalizing what you are asking from them but they are using their hind legs and arms to move. Moving about will reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases as they age including limp joints and muscles.
