REMEMBER to Keep Training Going:
Proper Exercise: Every dog should be walked every day!
Good Relationship with the owner: When you get frustrated, remember why you got your dog, he’s your buddy, he’s your pal. Don’t take set-back’s personal.
Socialization: It is very important to have a dog that is comfortable in as many different situations as possible. Take your dog everywhere you can, but proceed at your dog’s pace.
Consistency: Everyone in the household should have all the same rules, all the same cue words and commands, ALL THE TIME!
Generalizing: Dogs do not generalize well. It is important to practice everything you learn, everywhere you go.
Training Sessions: Keep them short and sweet. 3-5 minutes a few times a day.
