Cat/Dog Training Tips Made Easy

DOGS          

                           

Obedience training is a must for every good family dog, regardless of size or breed! Obedience training is fun. It helps prevent negative encounters between family members and the dog. It reinforces the bond between the handler(s) and pet.

Training your dog:

  • Puppy classes provide the opportunity for getting your new family member started off right. puppy classes provide the experiences and opportunities for your puppy to develop interaction skills with other puppies, with people, and in new environments.
  • Puppy socialization has been found to be critical to the psychological health of adult dogs. Puppy classes provide the opportunity for this important facet of your puppy's upbringing.
  • Training classes provide dog owners the skills and knowledge for dealing with common, normal dog behaviors starting with puppy behaviors such as housetraining and chewing.
  • No matter what age you start training your dog, foundation training provides the basis for any activity, behavior or job you want your dog to do.
  • Training has been shown to be the single most important thing that keeps a dog in his or her "forever" home.

​Dog training tips for successful training

  • ​Be Consistent: Apply the same rules and the same words all the time.
  • Be Concise: Give your command just once. Repetition of commands teaches your dog to ignore them because it sounds like you don't care if he obeys or not.
  • Be Generous: Reward your dog for being right. Give him a treat, verbal praise, or an ear massage.
  • Be Smart: Don't give a command unless either you are confident that your dog understands and will respond to it correctly or you are in a position to help him get it right.
  • Be Prepared: Have a leash handy in case your dog does not come to you when you call him. 
  • Be Happy: Because your dog is your friend and your training partner, keep your voice upbeat and smile at him. Dogs are sensitive to our tone of voice and body language, so use both to let him know that you will be so happy when he does what you ask him.

CATS                 

A Kitten will housebreak itself. Provide it with a clean litter box and make sure the kitten knows where it is located. Boxes should be kept scrupulously clean. There should be one more litter box in the house than the number of cats and the boxes should be kept in different locations. Clumping litter is often preferred while avoiding scented litter. 

If your cat is experiencing a behavioral problem or litter box avoidance, please call to make an appointment with our cat expert, Dr. Sharon Grace on January 30th or 31st.
