Training your Dog in Manhattan, NY

Our dogs should bring us more than just companionship; they should fill our lives with joy. When you have a dog that is not trained, it can be hard to handle and cause unnecessary stress. There is no such thing as a dog that starts life as a well-trained pup. These are learned behaviors, and finding an excellent training program is essential in proper care for your pet. They are more than just a dog; they are an extension of your family, and they deserve the best care.

Training a dog is using techniques to help dogs learn tricks or how to perform specific tasks.

It also helps modify destructive behaviors so that they can become a successful well-behaved member of society. Training provides mental stimulation, which many dogs need to thrive. When you make the crucial decision to train your dog, you give them the ability to live a healthy and happy life.

There are two basic methods all training routines stem from, aversive-based and reward-based.

Some use aversive-based training, which focuses on using physical corrections, noises to deter dogs, and tough scolding to get your dog to listen and learn the behaviors you are trying to teach. This method is believed to make your dog potentially fear you, but because it has shown successes, some people still choose this method. When your dog behaves the way you would like them using this method, you are meant to praise them and give them a lot of love.

Reward-based training focuses on rewarding your dog when they can follow commands or complete a task how you want them to. Your dog is set up to believe when they do something good or do something correctly, they receive praise and a reward, and they associate that with good feelings. A reward can be treats or even high praise.
