Basic Dog Training
How does your Springer Spaniel sit when you tell him to and mine
doesnt?", How can your dog heel to you like that?", Wow! He
comes when you tell him to - Sounds familiar?
If it does, you
need to invest some time into a little bit of basic dog training. Starting to
train your Springer Spaniel from a young age is crucial as the first few months
of his life is when you will have the greatest influence on him; this is where
he is shaped into the dog he is going to be when he is all grown up.
The most basic of dog training is to get your Springer Spaniel to sit and come.
Teaching him those commands are essential for him to learn. These commands are
used for various different reasons: If you are in competition, if your dog
jumps making him sit will immediately get him off and "come" is the all
important one. If you take your dog for a walk, you let him of the leash and
you expect him to come back to you, not run around the park with you chasing
To teach your Springer Spaniel how to come requires only the
most basic of techniques but a lot of repetition. The simplest way to get him
to come is have a toy in one hand and a treat in the other, when you are in the
house simply walk away from him, hold out the toy and excitingly call him to
you, when he comes over give him a treat, always use the command for come that
you are going to use in the future. Doing this several times a day is a great
way to teach him, but remember to have lots of long breaks so he doesnt
get bored and stop enjoying it, and dont forget the treats!
Getting him to sit could be a slight bit harder but again only requires basic
dog training. When you have mastered the come command call him to you, place
your hand on the end of his back and say "sit" while gently pushing down on his
backside, when he sits his bottom down give him a treat and a lot of praise. If
you want him to sit longer just delay giving him the treat and the praise, get
him to sit but take your time bending down to him and feeding him his titbit.
Basic dog training is simple and very effective. It should also be fun
for you and your dog, it doesnt have to be hours and hours each day just
may be 5 minutes or so. Dont forget to reward your dog and yourself for
all the hard work though!!
