Before you start teaching your dog to obey commands, it is extremely helpful to first learn the basic traits of dogs. This is necessary because when teaching commands, it is almost always necessary to deviate slightly from the usual procedure in order to understand the dog's reaction to the command.
According to their behavior, dogs can be divided into the following categories: too friendly, nervous, ordinary, wayward, timid (fearful, shy), biting and, finally, aggressive. A dog can and will move from one category to another, being at first too friendly, and then, acquiring a normal reaction, becoming ordinary, or, conversely, gradually turning into an aggressive dog. You can make a dog that is too friendly to be aggressive, but you can also foster a normal reaction in a dog that was previously aggressive. All these changes are possible only if you know how to educate and train the dog.
It will seem to you that training your dog is a hopeless business, when you try to correct its behavior for the first time, and it tries to bite you or begins to climb on a leash and climb into your arms; or when you start teaching her to walk beside her and she rolls over onto her back and stubbornly refuses to get up and walk; or when you begin to teach her to sit, and she will rest with her front paws and raise her sacrum. Fortunately, there are very few dogs that cannot be trained.
At the beginning of the training, you have two tasks: firstly, to determine properly and honestly what category of behavior your dog belongs to, and, secondly, to determine the degree of obedience so that ultimately the dog will strive for normal behavior, regardless of from what it was in the beginning. The main merit of a professional dog trainer is that he can set a goal based on behavioral or personality deviations and quickly negate or eliminate these problems.
We'll start by describing a typical average dog. A typical average dog can be of any breed. Perhaps this dog has been in your family from a very early age. You probably did not beat her, did not throw anything at her at her for minor offenses. She had a healthy upbringing, not marred by yelling, beating, or annoying behavior - by you or your family. She was not teased mercilessly by little children or left tied up in a cold garage or damp basement.
The average average dog is calm and friendly. She listens to you not out of fear, but out of a sincere desire to please you and achieve your location. It matters to her what you think of her, and she is flattered by your attention. She is not too excited by noises, doorbells, or strangers. Her behavior is acceptable in any setting. She has a stable personality. She is the perfect partner for team training.
Too friendly doggoes berserk when he hears the doorbell and starts scampering around the room. She tries to lick everyone who at least slightly expresses their benevolence to her. Her simple acrobatic movements resemble a giant toy on a spring, which is constantly twisted. Such a dog is just a scourge for all well-dressed guests, who are also forced to maneuver around the living room and hallway, trying to dodge the loving dog. This exaggerated expression of feelings usually ends with you locking the dog in the bathroom or on the veranda. This overly friendly dog takes a long time to calm down, if at all. If the dog is very large and it begins to jump on small children, hitting its face with its paws, pressing it against a wall or even knocking it down, then serious injuries may result.
Nervous dogis an exaggerated variety of an overly friendly dog. She's very wary. She is anxious to hear an unfamiliar sound. She always reacts to crackers or thunder. You can watch how much she trembles. Her heartbeat may increase. She may try to climb on your knees in search of participation and protection, or she may, shivering, huddle in a corner, away from everyone. She may also whine or howl with fear and anxiety. This is sometimes accompanied by colitis, instantly causing stomach upset. The hair on the back can stand on end, it can even bite from worry and fear. When strangers come, she gets terribly aroused. She begins to bark loudly, warning you of the presence of strangers. She runs around and often your guests feel very uncomfortable in her presence. This behavior makes people beware: they are afraid to even reach out to her to stroke her. Maybe this is a reaction to her master and his environment, or maybe her character. It is helpful to find out why she behaves this way. But it is even more important to understand that her specific behavior allows her to be categorized, which will provide more effective learning.
A willful dog tries to do what he wants and when he wants. When you try to convince her to obey you, she responds with the same reaction as a violent child. She does nothing for your praise - only their fear that you will tighten your demands. This protest is not her stupidity, as everyone usually thinks. She's smart enough not to do what she shouldn't. This shouldn't surprise you, because you undoubtedly know several people who behave this way.
Oddly enough, but despite the fact that we live in separate houses or apartments, we live together with everyone. Because on the sidewalk, on the bus, in the subway or in the store, we can't get away from these others. And as a result of such communication, we change our style of behavior or correct someone else's style, or even just learn to forgive or get used to it
In the process of upbringing and training a dog, we often use intonation, almost without thinking about what intonation is, does it affect the learning process of the animal and how? By definition, intonation is called the sound means of the language that form the statement: tone, timbre, intensity and duration of sounding, manner of pronunciation, reflecting any feelings of the speaker, his emotional mood
It seems that teaching a dog to jump quickly, high and beautifully is not very difficult. However, this is not the case, as evidenced by the mistakes dogs make in the competition. Skill is serious business. A skill is an action formed by repetition, characterized by a high degree of mastery and the absence of element-wise conscious regulation and control
In the "RKF Bulletin" published "FCI Rules for International Field Trials with Bait", which, as follows from point 1, are not mandatory for all FCI members, and therefore for Russian greyhounds who have long been engaged in hunting with dogs
Walking is contraindicated for cats and cats. There is no need for them, and the overpopulation of cities with animals, especially homeless ones, leads to the spread of various infectious diseases and parasites (fleas, lice, ear and itch mites, fungal infections, coccidiosis, plague, helminthic infestations)
