Training Tips From Cobbydog Customers
Many of our fellow dog owners have sent in their top tips for training and here they are
Danielle says “Be consistent even when bringing a puppy into the house, you can't suddenly change rules when they start to grow up. It's lovely having a puppy laid on your knee on the sofa but is it as lovely when you have a full grown dog trying to push you off as its become 'their' spot?”
Lyndsay tells everyone to “be consistent with your training, so the dog becomes a well adjusted member of your household. Loads of cuddles, plenty of exercise and fun and quality food.”
Penny explains that we need to show “Lots of love and patience. Don't expect too much too soon especially with puppies; lots of kisses and cuddles, never use harsh discipline or voice.”
Melissa tells us “If a puppy is mouthing or nipping you (as they do) yelp in a high pitched tone. They learn through their siblings that they have bitten too hard, so you are just replicating this. It stops them in their tracks!”
Lyndsay advice is “Silence. Direct eye contact with raised eyebrows often works better than a telling-off.”
Jess also asks us to “remember that mental training i.e. teaching tricks/commands is just as tiring if not more so than physical exercise. so don't panic if you can't get your dog out when the weather is bad. spend the time teaching your dog something new to learn.”
