You might compare a dog to a TV remote control that must be programmed in order to work properly with a television. Though the remote has the capability to function, someone needs to tweak it to coincide with the television. Dogs already have in them the innate intelligence to be trained, but a person needs to follow tips like these in order to bring the skills out.
Giving your dog proper treats is the best way to train. You must always provide treats in a wise and timely fashion. Make sure to give your dog the treats at the proper time, to encourage good behavior.
Treats are necessary when teaching a dog fancy tricks like rolling over. First, make sure the dog is in a laying position. Then hold the treat at the side of the dog’s head and move it around it’s face to the other side. The dog ought to follow his treat with the nose, prompting him to flop his entire body over. While rolling, use your vocal command. Be patient if they don’t get it right away; they’ll get it soon enough!
A dog has an inquiring mind and will look at one thing for quite a while until its attention is broken. If you get your dog to focus on you, it will help his behavior.
Teaching dogs to roll over can be easy, provided some treats are on hand. First, make your dog lay down. The next step is to hold a treat close to the floor by the dog’s head then continue to move the treat over his head until you reach the other side. Ideally, your dog will use his nose to follow the treat, rolling his whole body in the process. While rolling, use your vocal command. It will probably take multiple attempts, but you will be the talk of the town when the trick is learned.
It is important to leash-train your dog. Think of the leash as a safety requirement.
If you can get your mind in tune with what your dog is thinking, it will have a great impact on your training. Through this improved comprehension, someone training a dog could learn to use only the most effective rewards and punishment. Once someone knows a bit more about dogs, training becomes easier and more likely to work.
