Having a dog and having a well behaved canine companion doesn’t always go hand in hand and it definitely does not happen if you don’t train your pet. Almost everybody likes dogs and every owner wants their pet to have a nice and friendly behaviour. But in order to have the dog of your dream you should invest in training him or her. Otherwise, you will miss the opportunity to have the best version your guard dog can be, attitude wise.

Common dog training mistakes
And when it comes to training mistakes, here are a few which are most common among dog owners:
- Waiting too long to start the training, when you should train your pet as soon as you bring him/her home
- Not training your dog regularly, you should hold a 15 minutes productive training session for a certain command, do it at least 3 times per week
- Being impatient, training a dog takes time and you should not be expecting results after only a handful of sessions. In addition sometimes while training, your dog may be distracted or tired so if he/she won’t listen to commands (such as “sit”) you shouldn’t keep repeating it until the dog obeys, you should wait a few moments and start again, by getting his her attention first
- Harsh discipline, studies and professional trainers have shown that a dog’s behaviour improves through rewards and positive dog training. Harsh training is not effective
- Inconsistency, if you want to forbid your pet doing a certain thing, than you should not make any exception to this rule, otherwise your dog will be confused
And the list can go on. But if you want to avoid these mistakes and many others when it comes to properly training your dog, invest in professional training. You will not regret it. And not only will your canine friend will be well behaved but you as an owner can learn tips and tricks from the professional dog trainer.
