Today one of the most frequent pets is a dog. Since early ages it has been the best friend and faithful
companion of the man. However, this animal, like many others, must be properly trained. Otherwise it
can become an extremely irritating inmate. In this respect we have a few useful tips for you.
Each breed is unique, e.g., golden retriever and Siberian husky have very different characters and
physical characteristics, and therefore require different training methods; however there are several
main rules to be followed. They include classical training and training related to the positive and
All training methods are correct from their own perspective, and it’s just a matter
of your choice. The classical method initiated by the famous Russian psychologist is based on
the use of a ringing bell. Hearing the bell pets run to their master expecting to get some food.
This method is very simple and effective, because a dog gradually begins associating the particular
sound with some positive outcome.
The specified methods of training can be performed by hand or with the help of any other object.
The second method was launched by the American psychologist, who thought that consequences of each
conduct are capable of changing the behaviour and habits. The proponents of this method know that if
a pet is praised for something good it has done and when such praising is frequent, the pet’s behaviour
starts changing to a positive side. And when a pet starts disobeying – the opposite methods should apply.
There are very many different theories, and it would take much time to examine them. One thing that should be emphasised here is that whatever is a breed of your dog – a Labrador retriever, poodle, Yorkshire terrier, etc. – the most important thing is to start training in young age and devote enough attention to your animal.
