Know the Different Types of Dog Training

If you know the different types of dog training, you have the advantage of having a well trained dog.

Every dog owner must take up dog training to know and handle a dog better.

Appreciating a well-mannered dog is something that all can do, training is what makes things difficult.

Now, there are many kinds of dog training available but not all will suit your dog.

Most dog owners and also people in general are unaware of the various kinds of dog trainings provided.

The types of dog training change with the varying stages of development in the dog.





While some dogs have never been trained, some others have already undertaken training before.



Therefore, it becomes all the more essential to analyze and know what type of dog training your dog needs.



First Level of Dog Training

The first level of dog training is the basic dog training. The basic training is meant for beginners — either a puppy or a grown-up dog that is being trained for the first time.

This level includes only the rudiments — how to make a dog sit, stay and come when called.

Some part of it also aims at teaching the dog to socialize with other dogs and people in a proper way.

This is particularly given to puppies. And if your dog had never taken training before, this basic level is where to start with.



Second Level of Dog Training

The next level is the intermediate level. This level of dog training is not for puppies, but for those adult dogs that have undertaken the basics either formally or at home by their own owners.

This intermediate type of training trains a dog to heel, walk properly on a leash, fetch something and return. It also revises the basics of sitting, staying and coming etc.




Third Level of Dog Training

The third and final type of dog training is the advanced course. This level is only meant for those dogs which have been through a minimum of one training course before and have passed it too.

Here, in the advanced level, the different elements of the basic and intermediate courses are revised in details right at the start of the course.

Then it goes to train the dog to act according to various commands and hand signals like “come”, “stay”, “sit”, “heel”, “fetch”, “lie down” et al.

When the dog gets accustomed to hand signals, the advanced course takes care of teaching the dog how to walk and stay beside the master at all times even without a leash.

It also teaches the dog to have focus in its master, that is, to pay attention and stop getting distracted.

The advanced level of dog training is usually suited to very obedient and well-mannered dogs.

Like all good trainings, dog trainings should also have motivators like prizes and rewards to yield better and more positive results.

Hitting and yelling at the dog to make it pick up one action is not a wise technique while training. Instead of being a success, chances are that it will give negative output.

So you must make sure that the dog training you assign your dog is a positive one, which indulges in positive strategies.

You must also be careful about choosing the right course for your dog—the course best-suited to it.

That way, you may soon be able to boast of owning a dog that is obedient, well-mannered, well adjusted and the perfect pet one can have!
