Approach training with a calm and patient demeanor, understanding that learning takes time for both you and your dog.
Choose clear and concise verbal commands for basic behaviors like sit, stay, come, and down, and use them consistently.
Reward your dog with treats, praise, and affection when they follow commands correctly, reinforcing their positive behavior.
Keep training sessions short and focused to prevent your dog from becoming overwhelmed or losing interest.
A clicker or a chosen marker word can help your dog understand when they've performed the desired behavior.
Focus on teaching one command before moving on to the next, allowing your dog to grasp each concept fully.
Incorporate training into your daily routine to reinforce commands and build consistency.
Maintain a positive and patient attitude even when your dog struggles with a command, avoiding frustration.
