German Shepherds are probably the most intelligent of all types and they succeed on training and work. This dog breed has long been seen as a great partner for policemen, military personnel and disabled individuals. They have sharp minds and they enjoy demanding work that calls for them to think. When you own a German Shepherd, you are certain that you have one of the best pet dogs in the world.

Are there recommended training pointers for German Shepherd?

When it comes to training dogs, there are set standards that will work. Listed here are some training suggestions you can employ for all breeds:

Constancy. The same command must be used for every action. Don't change the command statement. Your dog will most likely be confused when the command is changed.

Have similar expectations for your pet. If you've given your dog a delicacy for something good he has done, do it again the next time. Your training will suffer when you confuse your dog.

Train in several short periods each day. No marathon training sessions as puppies get bored and they lose interest. Ten to fifteen minutes is long enough for a practicing session. Be certain that your pet enjoys his training time and does not find it too boring.

Never train when you're mad or dismayed. When you're in a dreadful mood, your puppy can sense it. You'll be affected negatively too.

Keep things cheerful. Dogs learn better when you are cheerful and upbeat. When giving instructions, try to sound more cheerful.

Train every day. Your dog may forget the things he learned if training is not regular. It's not the dog's responsibility, it's yours. Keep the training classes routinary.

German Shepherds have a quantity of special characteristics that you can use to make your training go well.

German Shepherd can be motivated by treats. Reward your dog with goodies while you're training.

There are a few German Shepherds that cannot be bribed with food. If your pet isn't interested in food you will need to find what makes him happy and use that as a reward. For some puppies, it's a special toy. Whatever it is, use it to your advantage when training. Something will make your German Shepherd go nuts with excitement.

Use exercise in your practicing. These huge active puppies need plenty of exercise. You need to make training a time for working out to keep your dog interested.

Calm him down. If your pet is too keyed up to exercise, walk around a couple of times to calm him down.

Perfection. If you're seeking perfection, German Shepherds can deliver. Once he learns the basics, the rest is easy. German Shepherds appreciate what is sloppy and what is perfect training. Demand perfection from your puppy and he will give it to you.

The training venue is important. German Shepherds can have a strong quarry drive so if you train in an open area where cats, squirrels, or other small animals may wander by, your pet may be distracted or even bounce off after the animal. This is particularly true through the early sessions.

Training German Shepherds should not be problematical if you know what you are doing. German Shepherds can do extremely well at inherent obedience, or anything you want to teach them. Be enduring and persistent. Have fun training!!
