Your Dog's Friend Teaches Humans About Their Pet’s Behavior and Offers Training and Advice

Cool Story - Your Dog's Friend Teaches Humans About Their Pet’s Behavior and Offers Training and Advice

Bringing home a new puppy or dog is a great way to expand your family. However, owning a dog presents a set of challenges. New owners may not know where to turn to for help. There are many owners and veterinarians who are relying on incorrect or outdated information on handling dogs. This bad advice can lead to a dog’s behavior getting worse, not better. Dogs can find themselves returned to shelters because an owner may find themselves in over their heads, or over an easily fixable issue. That’s where Your Dog's Friend can help. Your Dog's Friend is a non-profit charity that wants to keep dogs at home and out of shelters. They provide owners with important education and training on dog behavior. Each year, there are 3,000 webinar participants, with 6,000 more watching Your Dog's Friend’s online webinars. 

 

There are more kinds of dog training methods than you might realize. There are so many different methods, you may not be sure which is the best. Your Dog's Friend has helped to clarify that. Dog training has come a long way since its beginning. Dogs trained during the 1980s would undergo punishment-based training, such as choke collars. Today, dog training consists of positive reinforcement, in the forms of treats and praise. Using positivity instead of punishment has made training greatly easier and successful for both dogs and humans. 

 

Unfortunately, some celebrity trainers prefer to use less effective methods when training their dogs. They will use any number of methods like throwing objects to shock collars. Training your dog by scaring them is NOT the way to go. This will only make your dog distrustful and scared of you, and will make the training process take longer. The Humane Society of the US, the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior, and the Association of Pet Dog Trainers all agree that positivity is the best way to go when training your dog because:

  • A dog trained with positive methods will be more trusting of its owner.

  • Positive reinforcement teaches the dog exactly what you want them to do, and rewards them.

  • Positive training is a better way to understand and solve a dog’s unwanted behaviors.

  • This kind of training isn’t just used for dogs; zoo and aquarium trainers use positive training methods as well.

 

Your Dog's Friend has a wide variety of in-person and online dog training classes. There are classes for all dog ages and levels. One class they offer is their Puppy Preschool class. This class is taken online. The Puppy Preschool class will give the owner of a rambunctious young puppy tips, tricks, and answer common queries. There are three available session modules that cover a range of puppy raising topics. You can take any number of them, in any order you choose.

Besides classes, Your Dog's Friend can also offer important advice regarding dog behavior. Because dogs can’t speak in language, you need to watch their body language. Behaviors like backing away whining can be signs of stress. It’s important to work your dog’s brain as well as their body. Stimulate your dog by teaching them new tricks or buying them puzzle treat toys. For more dog behavior tips, click here: https://yourdogsfriend.org/life-with-dogs/10-tips-for-humans/
