Dog Training Methods and Tips
Dogs are carefree animals. They do whatever they like such as peeing, pooping, licking, barking, chewing, whining, scratching, jumping, sniffing and running around like there’s no tomorrow. As they are unable to figure out how to act on their own, they do what comes naturally to them. So, they must be trained to instill good behaviors in them.
You must know that it’s never too late to train a dog. Though it gets difficult when they grow older, but it’s never impossible. If you know the nature of your dog and some methods to deal with them, then you can train them effectively in your own way. However, if you want your dog to learn quicker, train them as early as possible. Just like the proverb, “Early bird catches the worm”, you must also train them early to get the best results.
There are lots of ways for dog training and they differ with different breeds. For instance, a training approach used for Yorkshire terrier may not work for Jack Russell terrier. Likewise, beagles also cannot be trained in the way you train your pugs. Different breed of dogs have different level of understanding and learning capacity. So, they should be trained in their own unique and effective ways.
Exception to this, there is one thing that works best for any type of breeds, and one thing that should be strictly avoided for all breeds.
This is a simple dog training method that can be implied to any dogs, yet you can get effective results. Positive reinforcement means rewarding your dog for the good behaviors. You can reward your dogs either by giving treats or by using verbal praises. Rewards or treats will motivate and promote good behaviors in your dog. Therefore, it has been one of the effective ways for training any breed of dogs.
Old School Method
This method, which simply rely on harsh and punitive measures for training should be strictly avoided as such methods only bring abnormal and unnatural behaviors in your dog. They resent you for such behaviors and may not obey your commands as often as they used to. So, don’t ever include this method for training any breed of dogs.
Tricks To Shoot Outdoor Sports
Many athletes come home with remarkable photos of their outdoors adventures and misadventures. These are some of their tricks.
Camera is the Most Important
Now in the age of digital photography SLR cameras are the best ask. Invest in a mid to high-end SLR (single-lens reflex) camera such as the Nikon D40 or D60, or a Digital Rebel EOS XSi or XTi. Today’s digital SLRs create high-quality, high-resolution shots in a multitude of settings and modes.Many brands are comparable in price and most cameras in similar price ranges match up well in head-to-head comparisons. Plus, digital SLRs will produce fantastic, professional photography results in the outdoors.
Point and shoots cameras are the main trend today since they can be so light and portable, the camera quality is also exemplary. However, they limit one’s ability to add lenses and filters that enhance the quality and effects of outdoor picture-taking. If a point and shoot is the only camera available, experiment with the tips listed below that do not pertain to attaching filters, and fantastic outdoor sporting photos can still be achieved.
Tripod- Utilize a tripod for ultra-clear shots when a scenic panorama is involved. You cannot easily have a steady hand during action, it will also help to avoid the focusing problems. Athletes willing to take photographs will also have some other problems, they will be tired, breathing hard and adrenaline will be pumped during action etc and all these can be avoided.
The natural sunlight offered will open wide range of opportunity to experiment with the light setup. Accessories like tripods and lenses will help a lot for the athletes for taking some of the quality photos focusing the subject in action. There are many types of tripods available so that you can choose one that are more suitable for your type of photography. You should look for one that can be easily carried around without adding great weight to your already heavy sports kit.
Polarizer- Circular polarized filters virtually eliminate the glare and reflection caused by the sun bouncing off of water and particles in the atmosphere. Polarized filters turn ultra-bright rivers into see-through water wonderlands. And when the sky appears hazy and dull on the brightest of days, a polarized lens will transform the sky into an exquisite, cobalt blue.
There are many modes to choose from on most digital cameras. Determining the desired effect of a photograph is the first order of business. Reading the manual that comes with the camera is highly recommended for familiarizing oneself with modes and settings. But to break it down in the simplest of terms, try experimenting with the follow tips when taking outdoor sporing pictures.
You can avoid camera slippage using a good camera gear. Stick on to some of the basics of camera for getting those wonderful pictures. Experiment with camera settings, angles, composition, and time of day. Combining these tips and techniques will greatly-enhance any outdoor photographer’s sporting adventures.
