Obedience dog training is the use of behaviour analysis that makes use of the dogs’ antecedent and subsequent environment to alter the dog’s behaviour, either to help in certain behaviours or undertake specific tasks, or even for it to behave effectively in modern domestic life. It is one of the simplest ways to get an obedient and socially stable pet. It involves teaching the animal how to act in certain situations by means of reinforcement and encouragement, with some people using physical methods such as chaining a dog, electric shock or spray paint for example. Kansas City obedience dog training is an excellent resource for this.
However, obedience dog training is not just restricted to working dogs because they too can be taught to perform certain tasks. Any animal, regardless of its species can be trained using a positive reinforcement and behaviour modification approach, thus making it an excellent choice for pet owners. The training typically takes around a few days but can be completed in less than thirty minutes, depending on the level of understanding and interaction between both parties concerned. In addition, most dogs learn much faster when they have a fun, interesting and stimulating environment to learn in, as well as being surrounded by their owners, so that the natural instinct of exploration will be reinforced.
A good obedience dog training program should not only teach your dog to walk on a leash and to stay calm while on it, but should also teach him basic obedience commands such as sit, stand, down, come, heel and more. As well as this, your dog must learn to heel at certain distances, stay away from dangerous materials, like chemicals or poisons, and to hunt and catch prey in their natural environment. Basic obedience commands such as sit, stay and down are particularly important, as they are commonly used in conjunction with agility and sports commands and require further explanation and clarification during the training process. You may also need to teach your dog other tricks such as the ring toss (where the handler throws a circle, sometimes containing objects, at the dog from close range), or the swim (where the handler holds a line, and the dog drifts across in a swimming motion). Once your dog has learned these basic commands, you will be able to teach him additional tricks, including the retrieve, where he has to touch something in order to get it back, and the weave (where he puts his front leg in between two items, usually wooden blocks), where he has to put one foot in front of the other in order to make a circle.
