Deciding how and where to begin training your dog can be an overwhelming experience. There are too many different ideas out there of what the right way to teach your puppy is. Grabbing one of the many dog teaching books out there can be a great way to get started, and give you an idea of what training can actually do for you. A book will help you figure out a solid training regimen.
Plan your Training
Just about any Beagle training book out there will let you know that consistency is vital to a training program. The reason most owners fail at training their puppy is because they don’t have the time or the patience to follow through with the program. You may believe you don’t have the time to train your puppy, but you should realize that the training doesn’t have to go on for very long.
When your dog is young long training sessions will be nearly impossible, and you will get much better results with short easy sessions. Your puppy will be excited to get all the attention you give him with your teaching sessions, and any good book will teach you a way to use that to speed up the training. The most vital thing to remember is to keep the short training sessions going regularly.
It is helpful to go in to your teaching sessions knowing what you intend to accomplish. It probably won’t seem like you are achieving much with each of your sessions, but training will be less aggravating if you believe you are working toward something. Your goals will vary depending on the type of puppy you have, which is why it is beneficial to have Beagle specific training books.
Many parts of training apply to every one of the dog breeds out there, but Beagles have their own specific characteristics as well. An understanding of the Beagle breed history will help you understand what problem characteristics to look out for. For example Beagles need a high amount of exercise and they tend to run off following animal scents all over the place.Share this Post[?]
