Secrets to Dog Training is an in-depth guide to dog obedience. The author, Daniel Stevens, understands that, though dogs are said to be man’s best friend, they can be unruly and destructive if they aren’t given the proper training. So, he has compiled a wonderful list of tips and tricks for training any dog. Here are just a few of the topics that Daniel covers in his guide:
House Training Your Dog:
One of the many topics covered in the guide is house training your dog. Daniel Stevens knows from experience the particular frustration and annoyance that goes along with coming home to accidents. So, whether it’s a new puppy or a dog that suffers from separation anxiety or is simply marking their territory, Daniel talks about the fastest and easiest ways to cure the problem.
Dominance is another big problem, especially with little dogs. Many dogs have a tendency to think that they rule the house and are allowing their humans to stay in it. Well, for many owners, that attitude is just unacceptable. Daniel Stevens’ guide, Secrets to Dog Training, talks all about the pack mentality of dogs and how to make your dog understand that you are the alpha (leader) of the house, not him.
As any good dog owner knows, house training can be a major issue. Whether you wake up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night only to step in a puddle of puppy pee or you go out to dinner and come back to find that the dog has defecated in the living room, it’s a horrible problem.
The aggravation alone is bad enough. However, it gets worse. The smells and stains are inescapable. Your cleaning bills can go through the rough. So, every owner wants to housebreak their dog as quickly as possible. Mr. Edwards’ Ultimate Guide offers dozens of helpful ways to do just that.
One of the great things about the guide is the convenience. It’s convenient on many levels. It’s affordable and easy to download, to begin with. Also, though, it’s well organized with plenty of illustrations and clear chapter headings. That way, ……………………… information can be looked up immediately, in any situation.
One of the great things about Dove Cresswell’s training program is that it covers so many things. Many programs focus on just one aspect of dog training. Dove tries to cover everything and cover it well, rather than just touching upon it.
Obedience and Recall:
Basic obedience and recall are two of the most important things to teach any dog. If a dog doesn’t listen or come when called, after all, its life is constantly in danger. Dove Cresswell’s program can teach any dog those valuable skills. Even if they knew nothing other than “stop” and “come” they’d be great dogs, but Dove’s program takes that basic training to the next level.
To start with, you can’t expect your puppy to be fully house trained and fully reliable before he’s six month of age. That being said,a dog can be house trained between one to six weeks. A lot depends on your puppy’s size and mostly the hard work you put into house training him.
There is also the fact that your puppy won’t have adequate bladder and bowel controls before he’s 16 weeks old. In other words, he’s not able to “hold it” for long periods so you should be extra vigilant all through that period.
But that doesn’t mean that you can’t start house training him the minute he put his paws into your home. It simply means that you have to expect your puppy to have a couple of accidents. But don’t worry, we will guide you through everything you’ll need to deal with these little mishaps, from how to react to how to clean up.
