How To Manage Dog Obedience Problems If You Live In Atlanta E I
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Atlanta is known for many exciting things and dog owners struggling with dog obedience problems slipped in on that list.

Training your puppy doesn't necessary have to be a struggle and the techniques used could be effective and reinforced in a positive and loving way.

Your dog wants to be the best four legged friend that you ever had. He will not borrow money without paying it back, date your ex, or not fill up your gas tank after using your car. So that puts them high up on the list of being your best friend and companion as well as a family member.

A local Atlanta dog trainer I know who is very compassionate about dogs believes in practicing positive encouragement when it comes to training your dog. This would include giving them praise for their behavior that is excellent with treats, loving, and long walks.

He discourages using any negative training method reacting to your dogs problem-ed behavior.

Don't think for one minute that this will take away from the" being in charge" in the dogs eyes. They still view you as the leader of the pack, that's their nature. It will not add to the misbehaving problems that they are displaying.

There will be mishaps by your dog in the beginning stages of training so you might want to get a carpet cleaner to have on hand because it is likely that you will need it. Jumping, yelling, and scolding at the dog for the soiled carpet will have a negative affect on them. Whats even worst, they do not understand your method of scolding nor do they hold grudges.

Dogs go from minute to minute not living in the past or worrying about the future.

If only we humans would get better at this ability. maybe you can teach a old human new tricks.

They only focus on whats happening in the present moment, maybe they learned that in dog yoga class.

So think about that the next time you come home and your dog left some four hour old DNA on your carpet, but they are chilling with a afternoon nap.

The last thing that's on their mind is some four hour poop. Their ready for some loving and gratitude for their fearless leader.

Dogs have to relieve themselves and its not their fault that you have not taught them to lift the toilet seat, so their looks of confusion on their face while your yelling at them is because they don't know why.

So to cut down on your blood pressure rising and your dogs confusion, taking them out to a regular area, at a regular time, will allow them to get used to defecating there. Add some praise and loving to the pleasing action and now the puppy has some idea formed, again at the present moment. It becomes, that this is the right place, the right time, and the right thing to do.

Its a dogs natural wiring to want your attention and their method of getting it could be in a naughty or nice way. This gives you, the leader of the pack another opportunity to help the long terms effects of positive reinforcement training as suggested by most accomplished dog trainers.

The best thing you can do is use treats, toys, and a good cuddle will have the most positive lasting effects on the way trying to get some good behavior rather then bad behavior. Most dogs rather experience praise and loving during the training process.

Even at the dog shelter that I volunteer at, when walking a new dog that arrived, that's what I give and I get the joy of making a new friend almost instantly every time.

So just imagine a new puppy that will be home with you without competing for the attention from 50 other dogs, having that positive training. This will have a positive effect on your part and your dogs will develop positive habits and will show in the positive behavior.

So the goal of becoming a loving, loyal member of the family will be obtained.

The possibility of them being your best friend will also increase also because they most likely will not borrow money from you they know they cant pay back on time
