Most Adorable Dog Breeds

When to Chain Your Dog

The act of dog chaining is still very present in our society, however, it is considered as animal abuse. Let me tell you the consequences of this act so widespread and, unfortunately, so standardized.

Concerning ”how long should a dog be chained up for?” The law is clear at the state level: it is forbidden to keep a dog chained permanently. It is another thing to chain him for a few hours a day to avoid aggression or dog escapades (for example, the person who goes to his farm and has the dog lose, but if he is forced to leave the door open he must chain the dog). This is an exception because the dog has freedom of movement for the rest of the day. Maltreatment and prohibition are given in permanently chained dogs, and even in dogs that always live on the balcony. And, unfortunately, there are many of these.

Why should you report? Without any doubt to avoid that the dog continues suffering. Dogs are one of the most sociable animals that exist. A chained dog is a lonely dog that can not interact with anyone. By inhibiting these relationships and subjecting him to such loneliness, the dog suffers anxiety and depression.
Dogs need daily doses of physical activity. If we deprive of that physical activity the dog will be deeply stressed and with very high levels of aggressiveness.

The psychological damage is brutal, but the physical is also present. Pulling the collar off the neck causes sores, cervical injuries and back problems. Not to mention that these dogs, are usually quite abandoned veterinary checks and in the most precarious hygienic conditions.

Making a dog live in these conditions is inhumane. If you know a case, do not hesitate to save the life of that dog, because to live in those conditions is to force him to be dead in life.

How to Train Your Puppy Properly

pupsA well-trained puppy makes its owner and everyone around happy. For you to have an obedient dog by your side, it is important for you to take some time everyday training him, 15 or 25 min is an appropriate time.

A well-trained puppy fits comfortably into your life circle. Some of the essential and necessary training include heel, lie down, sit and come.

Here are some ways of how to train your puppy properly.

Start the Training Early

Puppy training should begin immediately after he arrives home. The best thing about training puppies is the fact that they are still young, energetic and easy to train. You can also opt to join a class of professional trainers for more comprehensive training.

Give Immediate Rewards

It’s natural that dogs and especially young ones don’t understand long-term effects and cause. They learn quite fast. It’s advisable to praise and reward your puppy within the first 2 seconds of performance. This helps to reinforce behavior and acts as a motivator. Ensure that the recognition is accurate and associated with a positive response. Rewards are one way of training your puppy properly.

Be Consistent

If your training environment lacks consistency, it is hard for him to understand the commands. Involve everyone in the household on your dog’s training goals. For example, when training your dog on sitting authority ensure proper use of terms, don’t mix “sit” and “lie down.”

Train your Puppy on an Empty Stomach

A few hours before you start training, you should avoid giving your dog large meals. It helps him to stay more focused on the different tasks he needs to perform. The more he wants the treats, the more he will train properly.

End the Training on a Positive Note

Regardless of whether the training was successful or not, end it on something positive and praiseworthy note. Finish the training with a command that he has well mastered. The last thing on your puppy memory that he remembers should be your praise and love.

For you to properly train your puppy, you need to have the right equipment and manage your mind and expectations.  Make sure to buy one of the best dog crates so that your puppy cant get out and get into mischief.
