Training Dogs – Myth Four
Dogs that Chew are Either Bored or Just Being Distructive
Wrong! What do you do when you are bored and by yourself? Play computer games, watch TV, read? Dogs tend to chew, although the importance of chewing for a dog, is far more important to maintaining healthy teeth and gums than playing computer games is to maintaining our teeth and gums!
Just as your baby or toddler suffers from painful gums when teething, so do puppies, and there are special chew toys available for your puppy which can help relieve their painful gums.
Dogs are more than capable of learning what is, and what is not, ok for them to chew on once they have been trained properly. To help encourage the “right” sort of chewing, there are four steps you can take to help this:
1. Prevention: Prevention is always the best cure and new dog owners should always endeavour to turn their home into a “dog-proof” zone, at least until your dog has learned what it can, and cannot chew.
2. Stop It In Its Tracks: If you are at home with your dog when it starts to chew on anything it is important that you train it the commands for “drop” or “leave it”. You must give either of these commands whenever you see them start to chew on anything they should not be chewing on. If you have inadvertently left, or added, something in your home (from example in number 1) you must remove this item to help set up a situation where they can differentiate between appropriate and inappropriate behaviour. Either of these commands will also help if you are out with your dog and they decide they want to pick up something which is either just disgusting, or inappropriate.
3. Change Your Dog’s Focus: This is when you start to teach your dog which toys are theirs, and which they are perfectly entitled to chew to bits if they want to, and which items they really shouldn’t be chewing on.
4. What a Good Dog You Are: Praise is such an overlooked part of training. Your dog wants to please you and will, more than likely grow out of the chewing phase but if it does continue, it may well be a sign of something else, perhaps nervous energy, which is simply down to lack of exercise.

Alpha Dog Obedience Training – Basic Steps to Train Your Dog
As the title suggests, praise and positive re-enforcement are your keys to quick and easy obedience training for your dog.
The old saying “dogs are man’s best friend,” didn’t work its way into our every day life by accident. It has taken centuries of man working alongside the Canine and breeding desirable traits into the popular breeds of today. From the tiniest Chihuahua to the biggest Bull Mastiff and everything in between, each breed carries a desirable trait for its master. Along with size, color, type of fur and demeanor. The inherent trait of wanting to please its master, is probably the most desired and useful trait a dog could own. Using your dogs trait to please its master is the most effective way to train any dog. Ever hear the old saying “You attract more bee’s with honey?” Well, the same holds true with training your dog. Good dog obedience training is simply about praising the good behavior of your dog and ignoring the bad.
Praise that can re-enforce wanted behavior can be anything from a simple “GOOD BOY” to a nice piece of steak! A good pat on the head or scratch behind the ears are a couple of my favorites. This type of training can be done under many situations. Let’s say you are working on the command “sit.” If you find your dog in a nice sitting position even without your command. You can use this as an opportunity to positively re-enforce the command”sit.” As the dog is all ready sitting you can tell him/her “good boy! Sit, that is a good sit!” (pet or give him a treat).
Now lets talk a little about handling the not so good behavior. I know that this can be the most challenging part of training a dog. Let me point out the most important thing you have to remember when it comes to dealing with bad behavior. IF YOU DON’T CATCH YOUR DOG IN THE ACT there is no chance for learning or correcting the behavior. If you do catch your dog in the act of say chewing on your brand new dinning room table, (which has happened to me), you must first control your emotions. Then firmly say,”NO!” and re-direct them to what they are aloud to chew on. Now comes the really hard part… praise them for chewing on the correct chew toy. Keep your rage for that Saturday morning kick boxing class.
So, remember “Good Dog!” Obedience Training. Is the best and fastest way to train your dog. And you will be rewarded as you develop confidence in your dog and your relationship with your dog. An unbeatable combination for a long lasting rewarding companionship.
Happy training, thanks for reading.
