Dog’s place in the family hierarchy
It will not be possible to influence the behavior of the pet (this does not apply only to puppies, but also to adult animals) if the owner cannot become for him authority – the leader of the pack. How to show the dog who is the owner of the house? There are a few simple rules:
- The owner is always the first to start a meal, that’s the way occurs in a flock of animals – the leader is saturated, then all the others in order. The dog should be fed only after the whole family ate. If in the morning there is no such possibility, then you can feed the pet first, but on weekends do everything like supposed to.
- The leader enters the gate, door, gate first, the remaining members flocks will definitely miss him. You should accustom your pet to this order. All attempts to crawl, squeeze in, pushing the rest, must be suppressed. For this you need to give a command in a strict voice “You can’t!” And holding the dog by the chest, enter first. Shout, constantly pulling an animal on a leash is not recommended.

In any games of a competitive nature should be won by a person. how puppies and adult dogs adore pulling objects in in this case, the prey should be in the hands of the owner. If the pet superior in physical strength, or during the game of forces not left, you can apply the command “Give” and pick up the item.
- Ideally, the game should begin with the filing of the host. Of course if we are talking about puppies and young animals, observe this rule very difficult. Sometimes you can succumb to provocation by favorite. But the dog should finish the game exclusively with the filing the owner. One command is enough for the pet – “You can’t!”, But if it’s not valid, you must command “Sit!” and stand it position of seconds 30-40. Such a pause will allow the dog calm down.
- A well-bred dog must fulfill all orders and commands with first time. Of course, to achieve such unquestioning obedience not just, but subsequently it’s much easier to control the animal, which means that time was not wasted.
- The pet in the house should have its own corner – a place. Not all the owners agree that the dog cannot sleep on sofa beds, but only on its litter. But when the animal growls when trying drive him out of the master’s furniture, you need to take serious measures, as the animal began to forget about its status in the house.
- The rank of the pet will be significantly reduced if some time stop all his attempts to lie on a sofa or bed. Can block furniture, close doors, put animals in front of sleep from rooms – all means are good, except physical exposure.
- It is necessary to accustom the pet to the team “Place!”. Of course if the goal is for the animal to sleep always there, you need to show hardness and send the animal again and again to the place, even if the dog just stretched out on the floor. With puppies, it’s easier in this business – most importantly, the owners themselves do not give slack, with an adult will have to work hard.
- If the dog has gone too far, has stopped obeying, you can still apply one method is to expel the dog for no reason from where it lies. Even if this is his bedding. This should not be the norm, but used only for educational purposes, as such the attitude will remind the pet who is in charge of the house. Also possible restrict access to some rooms by exposing the puppy to a door.

Appropriate punishment for a dog
Use physical force – beat or kick the pet in no way case is impossible. An example of this is yard dogs, which everyone strives to offend, which leads to bitterness animal.

Basic rules of education
Of course, having no experience in dealing with dogs, it’s difficult right away to understand all the subtleties of education. If there is no time to delve independently – entrust this business to the professional. If such there is no possibility, you will have to work hard and not let everything go by chance. An animal of any age needs education, but a number of tips help to find an approach to a pet of any age:
- The master himself must learn. Without knowledge, not it is worth taking on the upbringing of the dog, as wrong actions can be harmful. Today there are many films and books made and written by professional dog handlers and veterinarians helping in this difficult matter. Time should be allocated for new knowledge – 40-60 minutes a day will be enough.
- You cannot use the word “later.” Not worth it to think that the dog’s abnormal behavior will correct itself, or can be corrected later, when a desire appears, free time, etc. Missing a moment, you can lose forever authority in the animal, and the correction will have to be carried out already for dog handlers.
- Self-control is important. Be a teacher and It’s difficult for a teacher to work in any field, whether it’s working with children, an adult audience, or animals. Before training you need to tune in a positive way, if any events are furious, you should not start classes, while the nervous the system will not bounce back. Screaming, tearing, spanking a dog in no by no means, not everything turns out right away, so it’s important to show patience.
A well-bred dog is not only a pride for any owner, but also reliable support and protection.
