Good Dog! Obedience Training
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.

If you are one of those people who is not really that familiar about NLP, you might be wondering what really happens in NLP training. If you are enrolled in NLP training, it means that you are going to be in a program which can help you enhanced the connection between the already existing connections of extensive neurological processes, self-confidence, linguistics, and skills. Some training programs claims that the can help you achieve a new sense of self-awareness and self-esteem that will take you to new heights to your lives, especially on your career. One thing that needs to be established though is that NLP training is not for diagnosing, or treating psychiatric conditions, it merely focuses on the problems that the person is having and how to overcome those problems to become better.
Most experts would suggest that the best way to learn Neuro-Linguistic Programming just like any other training is with practical and hands-on training. Most often trainers or coaches use unique style of training which includes humor and playfulness. Now the question is, what does NLP Training do? One NLP Training Provider claims that their programs provide their students with skills, techniques, and knowledge needed to effectively create lasting effects that will change their lives for the better. Now, imagine if you will enroll in one of these NLP Training programs you will get a chance to become someone who gets to achieve great things. You will now have a chance to change your unwanted behaviors and turn them into something positive. Not only that, some NLP Training Programs give you leadership training and management training to fully take charge of your life and learn to lead others to the changes they want.
However, even if there are a lot of good and positive things that one can get from joining an NLP Training still there are some critics of the program. Which by the way is normal and cannot be prevented, it is true for every successful programs. One major critic to it is that there are NLP therapists that are just into fraud or that NLP itself is a scam. I think personally NLP is not a scam but it is true that there exist practitioners that are very dubious and should be treated with caution. Another problem is that there are so many untrained practitioners out there, that is why it is essential for one to really do research in order to prevent these things to happen.
In joining NLP training courses, you will be able to clearly see the path that you are taking. Through new and innovative ideas you will be taken into the right path, NLP Training also makes you appreciate the better horizons of life. NLP is also an effective way to help you out in interpersonal relationships, including your job and education. It also helps you improve in business deals, in the way you teach and many other in your daily life routine.
As someone who participated in NLP Training before, it is safe to say that NLP was a great help for me personally. Yes, I did become better and I am not telling you this because I want you to join right now. Theres definitely nothing wrong with participating in one that is why I would advise you to do so. However, you also need to be careful because just like any other programs there exist a not-so-good side to NLP.
