Training dog is hard work to do but there are few steps to make them understand you. The only thing I knew about dog few years ago is obtain them from one of dog breeder in town, we start with a puppy, take care of them, giving them something to eat, and play with them.
Just looking at how playful they are, really giving me a refreshment, besides they are so lovely when they do stupid things. Who doesn’t love dogs? Me and my boo does.
But of course we avoid wild dog, few years back I have been chasing by a big dog when I am walking down an alley from school. I am young, at my best performance, and a good climber. So when it chased me I run back and try to find a tree (this idea is from African movie when someone chased by a lion LoL). FOUND ONE! But it take 1 hour until it went away.
I better stay there at a tree rather than bitten by this sick wild dog. Few days later, someone killed the dog. It’s bad thing to do, but some people don’t tolerate threat and people don’t have enough information how to handle things like that.
My strategy to train my dog is pretty much simple, but if it’s hard to train your specific dog, it’s maybe the best to take class for that and check this Dog Training Tutor.

Over the years he developed and refined what he saw as the most effective methods for dog obedience training. The Dog Training Tutor marks his debut dog training guide.
Make Them Sit
This is the basic step for you to communicate with your dog, so it’s definitely a good one to start with. I usually hold a stick/treat or anything (it doesn’t matter but be sure that it’s the one it put their attention to) close to my dog’s nose, then I move up so his/her head follow my stick and automatically he lower his bottom. Once he in the sit position, I say “SIT” loudly and give him the stick. Then I repeat for few times until he understand this kind of command.
Make Them Come
To do this, I take a collar on my dog, sit down, and say “COME” while me pulling the collar towards me. Then when he go to your side, give him a treat. It’s not easy to do, sometimes, they just go the other way, but after couple of times trying, I manage to do this.
Other than those two commands, there are actually some other difficult commands like make them down, stay, and leave it command. But, as long as my concern I am still happy to get those two command to my dog. I rather leave my boo to teach them other commands since it’s practically hard to do.
I would appreciate your opinion about this matter, so that we can learn from each other better to live this life abundantly!
