German Shorthaired Pointer Training – The Use of Tools

By Laura Sutton

Inviting a dog into your family can be one of the most fantastic and fulfilling things you do with your life. You’ll help your pooch by providing him the love and focus that he needs while providing you with a terrific companion to share your life with. These training tips were composed to give you an idea how utilizing different training tools can impact your German Shorthaired Pointer training result.

Have the suitable equipment and use it correctly. The type of leash, collar and harness are very vital to take into consideration when training a dog. Figure out how to put on a chain or nylon slip collar and utilize a standard 6 foot leash for most training. The bigger the dog, the more secure these items should be. In addition if one has a dog that pulls on the leash a harness should be utilized to control the animal opposed to a choke chain or collar. Do not yank or pull on the leash. Simply give a quick tug and release when the dog disregards a command to come or heel. Soon just wearing the collar is going to be sufficient to remind the dog that you’re the one in charge of the training session and very few corrections should be done.

While using tools works well in German Shorthaired Pointer training, make certain you know how to use them appropriately. Wrong utilization of tools isn’t only ineffective but can cause injury and other accidents that can risk your dog’s life. Read and understand instructions carefully. If you can have someone demonstrate to you how you can utilize a certain tool, then do it.

Reinforce positive behaviors as you train your four-legged friend. Rather than scolding or punishing your four-legged pet in response to an objectionable behavior, avoid reinforcing it. If you yell and scream, your canine companion can become very frightened of you. Positive reinforcement is the best way to go and obtain the trust of your canine companion.

Take the tips and advice that were included in this post to develop a great relationship with your furry companion. You are sure to benefit from the tips if you take the time to utilize them and the appropriate equipment in your German Shorthaired Pointer training.
