-Small punishments: just like your mother, you can apply small punishments (always keeping in mind that you are much bigger than him). You can blow him lightly on the nose, what it would mean for small a maternal attention blow, or give a small slap on the nose to indoctrinate him and that you understand that you should not bite.

-Never play with your hands or your body with it: it is always better to have their own toys, in this way you will never see your skin as something to bite when it is older. Any tape, ball or snowman will suffice in order to satisfy their desire to chew.

-Reward: If you punish your kitten, equally important is offer you reward when you go correcting their bad deeds. You can use cookies or simply an object that you like very much. Always in an orderly manner so you will understand that you are rewarding you.

How to teach your dog the order of call Sun, 12 May 2013 11:12:42 +0000 The order of call, or “come”, is essential in the training of our dogs to avoid inconvenience and possible problems if we disobey. The dog that in times of need demonstrates a good response to his master, can wander more freely and more quiet than one who ignores the call. Therefore it is very important to this order.

It is not easy to get, but also has a great complexity. The idea is to start training in a place where it is quiet, without a lot of distractions and starting with the command “stay”, for example at home. In general, you can start teaching this command from different points.

The first is when our little one is in the position to “stay”, i.e. still sitting. In this case, we must move away a bit of our dog, stop and say “come”. The dog should move and come with us. When you do you can rewarded with a prize in the form of kind words and gestures of affection, and that is that there is nothing so much as a dog thank his master’s touch. Well, some cookie never hurts;)

If the dog is distracted for any reason or if we do not do much, we could use the movement of our arms to get his attention and say “come”.

The second option you have to carry it out when our dog does not stay in the position before us away. In this case where our furry does not stand still, we can ask for help from someone else to keep it quiet until the magic word to rule. Then, you must follow the steps above.

The last case is when you can’t perform the previous two. We must seize the moment in which the dog is busy doing anything, we turn away and say “come”. Coming quickly is rewarded.

Some mischievous puppies ignore these orders and are more difficult to train. In these cases, you can have in your hands something they love to encourage and reward approach. So, little by little, anger associating the word “comes” with something good.

With the “herd”, that is, the rest of the family, is the most docile and gentle animals. If properly educated and socialize is a very tolerant dog, affectionate, friendly and very careful, but a characteristic of the breed is the mistrust of strangers. The animal is full of strength and vitality, not tends to mess too much and even in old age remains as playful as a puppy.

Thus we find a race not aggressive, quite the opposite. To educate it could not be easier: of course, you have to meet their basic needs of food, exercise and discipline, to impose certain rules and help you understand what you want from it. Rewarding good behavior and ignoring bad habits, or as much redirecting without yelling or hitting our dog, will get who understands what we want from him.
