Dog Training Myths

If you've been reading about how to train your dog, and it gets more confusing to you instead, it is actually not surprising.

There are lot of dog behavior training myths and misconceptions circulating, so to make dog obedience training a whole lot easier, knowing these myths will totally help you. It will revolutionize the way you train and the way you approach your dog.

Myth #1
Dog Obedience Training Takes A Lot of Time

If you don't know what you do, it can take absolutely a long time.

In fact, you'll never get there.

The good news is, if you know what you're doing, it's not that tricky at all. Obviously you have to put some patience and time in there, but obviously it doesn't have to take a long time for a dog obedience training.

If you have a puppy, yes you may need more efforts. But in the majority of cases, people are probably putting somewhere between 10 – 100 times more effort and work than they actually have to.

You might be thinking that's ridiculous, but it's not.

According to Doggy Dan from The Online Dog Trainer, what he has seen in the dogs he's worked with, when you're in the dog's mind, it will all become so much easier. People are usually assuming upstream against the dog so they feel the dog is challenging them, while it shouldn't be like that.

I'm not saying dog obedience class is not necessary, but for a lot of people they are not the best use of people's time. If you think it right, and you know what you're doing, you can save yourself a ton of effort and work.

If you've got the psychology right, the dog will listen to you.

Myth #2
Dogs Will Only Have One Pack Leader In the Home

This is a common myth that your dog will only listen to one person.

Well, that may be true but that's not the way you really want it set up. I'd suggest that you really want it set up so that your dog will listen to both of you and your wife, or children. So basically your dog listen to other humans, not just one human.

Dogs can certainly do that. It's very similar to children.

You want your children to listen to both you and your partner, or baby sitter, or other people who are looking after them and teach them. It's exactly the same with your dog.

They key thing is of course understanding how to be the pack leader. How to show your dog,

“You should be listening to me, I'm in charge!”, in a very kind and gentle way, of course.

That's what the website The Online Dog Trainer goes through in great detail.

Myth #3
Attending Puppy School Is Imperative

I would have to disagree and say this is a myth. This is probably quite controversial.

I'm not saying that puppy schools can't be fun. Obviously it is a great way to socialize your little puppy sometimes. But they're not the most important thing.

Just because you attend a puppy school, it doesn't mean that your dog will not going to end up with a serious behavioral issues. However, there are a lot of dogs who haven't attended puppy school where the owners have learned some very simple techniques for making sure the dog is socialized and understands who's in charge and then they become very sociable little puppies and dogs.

So, understanding how to be the pack leader is far more important as your puppy grows up. And of course there are many ways to socialize your puppy because it is important, especially around the 12-week mark. But there are many ways to do that.

Unfortunately so many people think that four little one hour sessions at a puppy class suddenly qualifies you because you have these papers saying “my puppy has graduated puppy class, and it means you're gonna have a great little puppy dog”.

One of the things with puppy class is that they completely miss out the important information. That's one of Doggy Dan's driving reasons of his motivating factors for putting together the best dog training videos, The Online Dog Trainer, because he just wanted to provide a way of every puppy owner worldwide, being able to get that information they really require in terms of raising their puppies properly and being able to raise them into a happy and relax dog.

Puppy classes can be great for socializing if they've done correctly, but they're not the one stop shop. There are many ways to socialize your dog.

Myth #4
Quality Dog Training Is Expensive

Yes, it can be very expensive.

But it doesn't have to be, in fact you can get some of the best information at half the cost of a bag of dog food.

You know, dogs are expensive. We pay fortune for the tags, registering them, vent bills, insurance, dog food, dog bed, dog toys, etc.

The dog training expert, Doggy Dan, suggests you don't have to spend a fortune when it comes to dog training. He has spent a fortune building this dog training video website so that he can provide you with all the information that you need for raising your puppy at a very reasonable price.

You can have a look from the trial, anyway.

That's the stuff that he shows people during the consultation for hundreds of dollars and it's all there about how to make sure you raise your puppy correctly from the beginning.

Quality dog training has to be really expensive – it's not true. There is some great stuff out there, you just need to know how to find it.
