Training Issues with the Chinese Crested

Any current or would be Chinese Crested dog trainer, regardless of whether they're training a Hairless or Powderpuff, needs to remember one thing above all: Consistency, consistency, consistency. The breed is known as gentle, sensitive and intelligent, and to instill faith and obedience in the dog, the trainer must, absolutely, be consistent. In training the Chinese Crested, something that results in punishment must always result in punishment, something that results in reward must always result in reward. The breed's unusual sensitivity absolutely insisist upon a gentle owner who will provide a dependable atmosphere, rather than an erratic schedule of inconsistent treatment or a constantly changing environment.

Obedience Training To Relieve Innate Stubbornness

The Sussex Spaniel is a dog that is not easily trained. House training can be difficult and they are prone to separation anxiety and stubbornness. They do have good intelligence and will eventually pick up on their training, but it can take some time and some patience. The innate stubbornness doesn't make them less friendly, however, they can try to manipulate a situation to get what they want. Just be firm and consistent with their training so that they get the idea that you won't accept less from them than their obedience. [...]

English Springer Spaniels And Behavior Training

Sit. Stay. Fetch. English Springer Spaniels can and will learn these commands. Owners just need to learn proper training techniques. In general, the breed is obedient and eager to please. They love praise and want to make their owners happy. It is important to begin training early on. Training classes are a good idea. Before enrolling your dog, make sure you are comfortable with the trainer's methods. Most trainers use positive reinforcement. This is the best way to get an English Springer Spaniel to perform as desired. [...]

Papillon Treatment

The only commonly reported problem with the Papillon, in regards to temperament, would be the breed's slight tendency towards timidness. In training, this timidness can make housebreaking a bit of a challenge, though far from an insurmountable one. Of course, unless this is countered early on, the Papillon will sometimes opt to mark spots of the house as their personal territory. This is definitely a setback, as the breed really is not capable of living a healthy life as an outside dog and absolutely must be housebroken for the sake of the owner's peace of mind. Luckily, this is the only common major hurdle in training the breed and most trainers will be able to stop the problem in its tracks without too much extra hassle. [...]

The Italian Greyhound - Male or Females?

Getting an Italian Greyhound is a big decision, just as it would be with any dog. Before you decide to get this dog, however, you should be prepared to devote a lot of time to your dog as the Italian Greyhound is a very demanding, sometimes spoiled dog, that loves to be the center or your attention at all times.After deciding on the Italian Greyhound as your breed of choice, your next decision will be if you want to give a home to an older dog or start with a puppy. If you are unfamiliar with this particular breed, I suggest you get a small puppy. Although puppies are a real handful, they are easier to train and work with when their little than an older dog that has some habits already set in their personality. This is especially true with this breed, which is already known for being stubborn. [...]

The Mind of the Giant Schnauzer

The Giant Schnauzer is a very intelligent breed of canine. This animal is an independent thinker and will not stop until he has figured out the puzzle of whatever nature it may be. The Giant Schnauzer is a true problem solver.If left to his own devices, the Giant Schnauzer can be very destructive unless their energy and mind is channelled in a constructive manner. They can get into trouble before you can even process what is happening! The Giant Schnauzer has no problem with eating your furniture. They have been known to eat an entire couch in under thirty minutes without compunction or remorse. He just views your furniture as great big toys that need to be dominated. He will try to put them into submission before you can do anything about it. [...]

NILF Training

For puppies that are somewhat stubborn, headstrong or have picked up some lazy or bad habits, NILF training is just the technique to get them back on track. For most dominant puppies or breeds that are dominant by nature NILF is also an ideal way to start training and work through training without having to deal with many of the dominance and non-compliance issues you may see in other less task oriented type training methods.NILF, which stands for "Nothing In Life Is Free" is a method of training that requires the dog to perform as per the owner's requests in order to get what the dog wants. This is not a punishment based training method and as a matter of fact NILF training requires no punishment at all, simply a willingness for the trainer to never give in or accept poor or difficult behavior on the part of the puppy. [...]

New Twists On Old Training Routines

There are many different times that changing a routine or training program may become important for both the owner and the dog. Lots of breeds, especially those breeds that are naturally very intelligent, somewhat dominant or even very headstrong need to frequent changes in routine to prevent them from becoming bored, non-compliant or simply disobedient. Usually these behaviors are a result of the dogs not being mentally challenged and showing their frustration to their owners. Breeds that typically use these types of behaviors can include Jack Russell Terriers, Poodles, Corgis, Schnauzers, Border Collies, Australian Shepherds, Akitas and other breeds that are known for high intelligence. These breeds love a challenge and if they aren't finding ways to use their mental energy productively, they will find ways to use it destructively. [...]

Famous Miniature Horses

Miniature horses are becoming more desirable as pets, show animals, and service animals. Many minis live within the home, just as a pet dog would. Some live in special made barns built to scale just for them, and some are allowed to come into the home through an opening similar to a doggie door. Most miniature horses are petted and pampered; they are enrolled in horse shows, and some minis have become quite famous. [...]

Lipizzaners and Airs Above the Ground

The Lipizzaner is known principally for its strength in dressage and for its ability to do the famous airs above the ground. Only a few breeds in the world have the capability to do the famous airs because they require a substantial amount of strength in the hindquarters that most breeds simply do not possess. Only after achieving the highest level of dressage training can a Lipizzaner begin training for these impressive and difficult exercises. [...]

Canine Communication and Signals

Your dog gives off lots of different signals to you each and every time that you interact. Some signals we, as humans, seem to understand right away and respond to, while others are a bit more confusing and obscure. Being able to read the signals and communications that your dog is sending can help you in responding to your dog and modifying training to better match the dog's natural tendencies and behaviors. [...]

Guard Dog and Watchdog Training

Most people interchange the words watchdog and guard dog, although they really are two very different skills or behaviors. In addition to watchdog and guard dog categories, there is also a third type of training, known as protection dog training. Each of the three has some similarities in behavior however they are also slightly different as well. In order to discuss the different types of training, it is first important to understand the three different roles. [...]

The Importance of Socialization

There are literally whole books and training programs dedicated to the development of the understanding of the importance of socialization in training a dog. Dogs need to learn how to interact with each other, other non-canine animals, humans and even new environments. A dog that is not properly socialized is a potentially dangerous animal, regardless of his or her size or typical temperament. [...]

Apartment Living For Dogs

There are many breeds of dogs that have become very popular as apartment companion pets. These dogs, as can be imagined, tend to be the toy to smaller sized dogs, although some medium sized breeds are also on the most common city breeds lists. It is important to realize that with appropriate exercise time most breeds, but definitely not all, could adjust to be excellent apartment dogs. The key is finding the time and place to provide the exercise space and activities for higher energy breeds or those that simply stay calm and inactive while indoors. [...]
