many of my frnd asking me how did i trained sky to do trick or how i did get her attention to do this and that simple i drain her energy 1st before i train her.

here are some tips i followed by Tom McSherry

Tip 1: Know Your Dog.

This may sound a little airy fairy at first, but bear with me – it has a very practical application to training. See, every dog is different. They all have different personalities just like humans. There are certain things that all Jack Russells will do, just like there are things that virtually all people will do. But that change the fact that all dogs can have their own unique behaviors – and more importantly, they have their own way of learning.

This is why in my ebook I give alternative methods for teaching the same move – because different techniques work for different dogs.

But what this really means is that you should understand things like what motivates your dog. Does your dog get more excited by a squeaky ball, or a bag of treats? You can see how this knowledge can make training much easier, because you know what to use as a reward. So pay attention to your dog’s character and train according to his or her personality.

Tip 2: Make Training a Habit.

This is a fairly simple principle. You should aim to train your dog on a regular basis, according to a set routine. Every day is best, until you get to the level of behaviour that you want. After that you can reduce the number of training sessions to maintain what has been learned, or you can start teaching more advanced tricks. But make sure you have a routine – dogs are animals that thrive on having a set daily pattern.

Tip 3: Exercise.

You’ve no doubt heard me harp on about this before – training and exercise are closely linked. For one thing, many behavior, such as hyperactive behavior, are much more easily solved by more exercise than more training. In fact, if your dog isn’t getting enough exercise, NO amount of training will fix hyperactivity issues.

The other aspect of this is timing exercise in relation to training. Exercise should be timed so that your dog is able to focus on the training. If she has too much energy, she won’t focus – she needs a walk. If she’s just been for a long walk, she may be too tired to train. You have to get the timing right.

Tip 4: Mental Stimulation.

Again, this is one you may have heard from me before. Keeping your Jack Russell’s mind sharp is just as important as keeping physical exercise up. This will help to eliminate or reduce a lot of destructive behaviors, which are often just a result of the fact that the dog’s brain isn’t being challenged. Jack Russells are smart dogs – they need to think as well as run.

You can provide this mental stimulation by teaching tricks and playing games, plenty of which can be found on my website under the “Dog Tricks” section and in my ebook.

Tip 5: Be Persistent!

Many owners have failed to train their dog to the level of obedience they try out a technique or a principle once or twice, don’t see immediate results, and then think, “Oh well, this is a waste of time – it doesn’t work.” The fact is, it takes a lot of repetition for your dog to learn something. To do it consistently requires even more repetition.

It may takes weeks of training on a particular command before you see real progress – but as long as you’re doing everything right, you will see progress. Sometime sit just takes a while for your dog to “click.” In training some commands you will see gradual improvements right from the start until the dog masters it. In other, it will seem like nothing is happening for a while and then your dog will suddenly “get it.” So always persist in your training. Remember, if something isn’t working, examine what YOU are doing, not what the dog is doing. You’re the teacher.

Tip 6: Learn From Your Mistakes.

You will make mistakes in training your dog. You may even encourage bad habits by accident. The trick is to figure out where you’re going wrong or have made a mistake in the past, and figure out how to improve on this. If you’re reading this email, then chances are you’ve read my free report on the Top Ten Training Mistakes too. Use this as your guide.

Tip 7: Have Fun.

Training should be fun – for you, and your dog. If it gets to be frustrating, take a break. Treat it like a game. Likewise, if your dog is obviously not enjoying the training, take a break. The dog won’t learn when if you’re pushing him too hard anyway. Keep training times short enough that neither you nor the dog start to lose your cool. Training should be a part of the bonding process, so enjoy it.
