Training your dog can be easy if you know what to do. The first thing you need to do is get a good obedience training book or video. You will want to make sure that the book or video covers all of the basic commands such as sit, stay, come, down, and heel. Once you have a good resource, you will need to find a quiet place in your home where you can work with your dog without any distractions. Start by teaching your dog the most basic commands first and then move on to more advanced commands once your dog has mastered the basics. Be sure to give your dog plenty of praise and rewards when he or she does something correctly. With a little patience and consistency, you should be able to train your dog easily.
Fortunately, Brain Training for Dogs offers an amazing obedience training book or video. Written by professionally certified trainer Adrienne Farricelli CPDT-KA (who’s work has appeared in USA Today, Every dog Magazine, Nest Pets and more), Brain Training for Dogs is one of the first training programs to not only teach obedience, better behavior, important skills and tricks, but to also work on increasing intelligence and engaging the dog’s brain too. Through 21 fun and simple games, the novel and scientifically-proven methods taught by Adrienne are sure to improve the lives of both you and your dog! By the end of Brain Training for Dogs your dog will be able to tidy up his toys, play the piano (yes, really), and identify his toys by name – all while being a better behaved and more obedient dog.
