Dog Obedience Training: All dogs can be obedience trained. Over half the problem is you, and the belief that you cannot teach your dog obedience. This is not true you can train your dog in obedience with a little knowledge and time. Things to keep in mind are time commitment; you will need to set aside ten minutes two to three times a day. Obedience is on going as your dog never stops learning.
It is important that you have a trusting relationship with your dog. All obedience has to be fun. Remember your dog will love the time with you, and it is rewarding for you both. The long term rewards are for others to see you and your dog working well together. You can start the training with the basic commands of "sit" or "stay" building up to lead work, then on to commands that are directional like left and right.
Obedience also builds you and your dog's confidence, along with safety in all sorts of situations. It takes time to get the level of training you may want from your dog. You will get the odd problem on the way as well but as soon as you see that your dog is getting bored or aggressive change your dog's attention to something else that they are good at like running through well known commands, giving lots of praise as they complete the given command.
Never push your dog too hard, short happy lessons work really well and make for a happy owner and dog. Always keep calm and never shout, often on the next lesson or the one after that things will click into place for your dog and a new skill will have been learnt. End the session on a positive note, with praise being given.
You need some equipment, the most basic being a good collar and lead that are up to the job required. Always get the best you can afford, as you will be using this equipment all the time, and it needs to be up for the task required.
Have time to choose an obedience method that will suit you and the dog, this can include the breed of the dog. Choose wisely as you will be using this method for a long time. Pointers to think about are, keep it fun, keep it uncomplicated, and keep it little and often.
There are classes for obedience, and if they run in your area you should pop alone to see how the classes run without your dog.
This will give you a feel for if it is right for you both. Does the class run at a pace for you?
Are the dogs you see at the class happy?
Are the other owners happy with the class?
Does the class follow a program that you can reinforce at home?
How big are the classes and does the trainer manage to control and help all attendees 'both dog and owners?
If you have one in your area, and you can afford it there are personal obedience trainers that come to you and work one on one. On saying that there is nothing wrong with you doing the training yourself, this builds up the bond between dog and owner. A well trained obedience dog is a total pleasure and can be proudly taken anywhere.
