This article will be a little more in depth about poodle training.
Instead of looking at different areas of training, it will be looking at the tools and methods that you can use to obtain the best possible results.
There are numerous tools that experts swear by and of course they can, in theory, work wonders with your Poodle but you have to make sure that you know how to use them properly to see any effect.
The rest of this newsletter will give you a little more insight to Poodle training and how to go about it if you want it to be effective.
USING DOG TRAINING TOOLS
There are numerous dog training tools out there for you to take full advantage of during Poodle training today.
For example, you can use dog whistles for teaching obedience, harnesses for teaching leash manners, a crate for teaching house rules and even agility training courses to enhance the bonding process.
Today, there is no shortage of options out there for you so it is necessary to assess which ones will work for you.
As we have already touched on the crate in previous newsletters and will cover it again, and the same applies to harnesses, we will discuss the whistle instead. The dog whistle is a good method of calling your dog that does not involve you losing your temper with him or her.
If your Poodle is prone to ignoring you then it will actually be a very useful tool to use during Poodle training.
As a dog training tool, it is perfect because humans cannot hear most dog whistles. Instead, only dogs can and using it will enable your Poodle to identify a recall. Instead of shouting and losing control, you have only one sound and one pitch to work with so it is a straightforward command.
You should teach your dog this in a confined space like a back yard to ensure that he or she picks it up quickly and easily.
THE KEY TO DOG TRAINING METHODS
Poodle training comes in many different shapes and sizes but there is one key that applies to all of them.
The key to successful dog training methods is having patience and taking progress as it comes rather than expecting it. Taking the process in your stride and remaining patient no matter what is an absolute must so always remember that when you feel the frustration begin to set in.
FINDING EXTRA DOG TRAINING INFORMATION
Of course, the information in any single one of these newsletters may not be enough for you to use it effectively during Poodle training so you may need to do a little research on your own.
Plenty of dog training information can be found in the rest of the newsletters in these series so putting it all together will help you a lot. In addition, you may want to look at forums that offer tips and help to Poodle owners or eBooks that go into dog Poodle training in detail.
You should never actually start training unless you feel you have enough information because there is nothing worse than changing methods half way through or lacking confidence.
You will not be able to convince your dog you are the pack leader unless you have confidence and changing methods will only confuse your dog and may set him or her back.
Be consistent, persistent, confident and never give up!
