When you and your dog go to dog training, the right tools are important to get the most out of the training. There are many different forms of training, so it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with which dog breed suits which form of training, before acquiring a dog. Common for all dogs is dog puppy training, which is an essential part of the dog's further development and behavior towards other dogs and people. The early socialization of your puppy can indeed have major consequences for example aggression, anxiety or fear in different situations.
The right tools for dog training
Whether you are puppy training with your new puppy, young dog training, agility, nose-work or hunting training, the right tools are important. This can both mean a good dog whistle for recalls, training treats, a solid bag for treats so your hands are free, or a clicker if you want clicker training. The tools should make training easier for both you and your dog, and ensure that you get the most out of the training.
What kind of training suits your dog?
The many different dog breeds also mean different forms of training. When you choose your dog, you usually choose based on which breed suits your own temperament, lifestyle, living conditions, etc. It is therefore important to have agreed in advance which type of dog and which type of training is therefore suitable. If you are in doubt, you can always contact a dog trainer and have a chat about which form of training is right for you and your dog.
When should you start dog training?
All dogs, regardless of breed, benefit from going to puppy training, which is an important part of the socialization of your puppy and a strong foundation for the dog's further development and training. The earlier the dog learns the basic rules for how it should behave, the fewer problems arise when the dog gets older and matures. A puppy is easier to shape, as it is curious, learns well through play and has not already formed fixed behavior patterns.
Selection of treats for training
Please ask your dog trainer for advice on which treats are suitable for the different types of training. However, we recommend choosing treats that are quick for the dog to eat, such that your dog quickly receives its reward after a correctly performed action. If you exercise a lot with your dog, we recommend choosing treats with a fat percentage of 10% or less.
Of course, Petlux also sells extra-smelling treats that can lure even the pickiest dog to its owner.
