In order to the most out of your dog training lessons it is a good idea to keep a few things in mind. First, you need to set goals. It isn’t necessary to place equal priority on every command. For example; you may not care if your dog does a perfect heel, but you do care about good leash manners and no pulling, or you may not mind if your dog jumps up on you but you don’t want to allow them to do this to your company. Take some time to think about what is important to you so you can focus on making strategies for those training issues. Realize that some goals will take more time and patience on your part. Your expectations may change as the training progresses. You may find that having conquered your first priorities you now have other goals or higher expectations. You may find that you need to modify your expectations because the effort necessary is beyond your ambition or is unrealistic. In either case you still need to set goals and plan your training so you are purposeful in your training. Remember it is always good to ask questions.
Remember, like any other advice every situation and dog is different. If you have trouble following through successfully by the advice given here, that doesn’t mean you can’t train your dog. You just may need more personal help. Don’t give up, get help!
