Important in dog training: the command "No"

"No" is an indispensable command in dog training, but it is not as easy to train as "sitting" or "space". If you follow a few tips, the project will succeed - and your four-legged friend will learn its limits.

In contrast to the commands “seat” or “seat”, you cannot simply train “no” on the spot. After all, your dog has to do something forbidden or wrong so that you can make it clear to him that he should stop doing it. If, for example, your four-legged friend does something wrong when learning other commands, you can include the "No" in these areas of dog training.

Link "No" to another command

Before you raise your dog with the "No" command, you need to be clear about what is allowed and what is not: Are the kitchen and couch taboo for the dog? Or would you rather keep him from rummaging around in your handbag? In any case, you have to stay consistent. That means: when jumping on the sofa, the dog must always be warned with a "No" - pats or other caresses around such wrong steps are counterproductive. They confuse the animal and make dog training extremely difficult. Also, be careful not to mess up your dog by saying "no" too late. Then he may not know which of his actions is linked to the complaint.

Dog training must build on positive experiences

Because praising works better than punishing, you must not apply negative sanctions to the “no”. After a “no”, say “sit” or “place” so that if the dog does it, you have a reason to praise it. The four-legged friends learn faster and there is no frustration.
