Why training your dog is a must do!

If you have a dog, then you know that having a well-trained dog is essential to a happy life together. Not only does it make things easier for you as the owner, but it also makes your dog happier and healthier. There are many different reasons why dog training is so important, with a recent reminder being the news reports that tell of a pit bull that attacked and mauled two kids, leaving their mother in hospital due for surgery. This is something that should never have happened, because life is so precious, and negligence is not the answer. In this article, we talk about why it is important to train your dog; as they are not only a reflection of themselves but their owners as well, to avoid accidents and mishaps in the future. Read on to learn more about why dog training should be at the top of your to-do list when thinking of getting a new puppy for the family! 

Dogs accidents with humans over the years

Dogs have been involved in accidents with humans for centuries. In fact, the first recorded dog-related accident occurred in 1814, when a dog ran into a group of people and caused a stampede. Since then, there have been countless other incidents involving dogs and humans, ranging from minor scrapes and bruises to serious injuries and even death.

While most dog-related accidents are relatively minor, they can still be costly, both in terms of medical bills and property damage. In addition, some accidents can cause emotional trauma for both the victim and the dog owner. This is why it's so important to train your dog properly; not only will it help keep them safe, it will also help keep everyone around them safe as well.

Dogs provide us with an opportunity to learn responsibility in a way that is fun and rewarding. When we take on the responsibility of training our dog, we are taking on a commitment to help them learn and grow. This process requires time, patience, and consistency – all qualities that are essential in any successful relationship. Through dog training, we also learn how to better communicate with our furry friend. We learn to understand their body language and vocalizations, and in turn they learn to understand ours. This improved communication can help prevent misunderstandings and conflict, making for a happier home for both you and your dog. 

Dog training rules 

1. Dogs should be trained as early as possible. The earlier you start, the better off you and your dog will be.

2. Use positive reinforcement methods whenever possible. Dogs respond best to positive reinforcement, so rewarding your dog for good behavior is an effective way to train them.

3. Be consistent with your commands and expectations. Dogs thrive on consistency, so make sure that everyone in the family is on the same page when it comes to training.

4. Be patient with your dog. Training takes time and patience, so don't get frustrated if your dog isn't catching on right away. Just keep at it and they'll eventually get it!

Are there dogs that can be trained and those that cannot?

Training a new puppy is no walk in the park, so to speak. If you want a dog who’s thoroughly housebroken, doesn’t jump on guests, and politely waits for his meals, you’ll have a lot of work to do. There are two types of dogs when it comes to training: those that can be trained and those that cannot. Dogs that cannot be trained are typically either too old, too young, or too stubborn. There are some dogs are pretty easy to train, while some are difficult and require more commitment and work. However, nearly all dogs can be trained to some degree if the owner is willing to put in the time and effort. The same effort you would put in raising your new born baby. Patience is the key.

Dogs that can be trained typically learn commands quickly and respond well to positive reinforcement. These dogs usually enjoy learning new tricks and relish in the attention they receive from their owners during training sessions. Dogs that cannot be trained often require more patience and may need to be coerced into complying with commands. Training these dogs can be frustrating, but ultimately rewarding.

Whether a dog can be trained or not is largely dependent on the individual dog. However, there are some general tips that can help increase the chances of success when training any dog. First, it is important to start training early, while the dog is still a puppy. Puppies have short attention spans but are generally more receptive to new concepts than older dogs. Secondly, consistency is key when training a dog; if the rules for behavior change frequently, the dog will get confused and will likely not respond well to commands. Finally, it is essential to use positive reinforcement when training a dog; praise and treats are much more effective motivators than scolding or punishment.

 A recent study has shown that people who have a dog in their family are more likely to have higher levels of oxytocin, which is the "hug hormone". This hormone is released when you hug someone and when you interact with your dog. Some people argue that in the past dogs were just animals that served a purpose, which was to help hunters find their prey. In modern society, we see dogs as an important part of the family, that is why they need thorough training. You can’t just walk on the street and expect a stray dog to hug you back right? Unless you want a survival story to tell your grandkids!

People have emotional connections with their pets. Pets can provide unconditional love and companionship which can lead to an emotional attachment. This attachment causes people to view their pet as one of the family members they get to spend time with on a daily basis. In addition, there are many studies that show how dogs are a source of stress relief and can be used as therapy animals in facilities such as nursing homes and hospitals. Train your dog. The benefits surpass expectations. A major benefit is that you get to buy them the most amazing, ethical ly produced woven dog basket to make them feel at home!
