What should I avoid when training my dog?

What Not to Do

When training your dog, whether it be leash training, potty training, or teaching your dog how to sit, it's important not to lose patience or overreact if your dog isn't behaving the way that you would like. Say you're going for a walk and your canine decides to he'd rather pull in the opposite direction throughout your entire walk. It's easy to become annoyed, but never yank on the leash, resort to yelling, or other angry behaviors. Your canine will not understand what you are trying to communicate to him. You need to stay disciplined in terms of keeping the leash loose, praising proper behavior, and not losing your temper. Remember that patience and consistency are the keys to dog training.
