There is so much advice out there in the dog world that it is easy to become confused and find an effective solution. There are a myriad of training tools available and it is easily to be guided down the wrong avenue. To help you with your relationship with your dog you might get some advice from one dog trainer which totally contradicts the advice given by a host of other dog trainers.
Obviously it is important to do your own research and then try something but I recommend that once you have made your decision then it is important to stick with it and be consistent, it is also a good idea to set yourself a target for reviewing your decision. If something hasn't worked for you and you can't see any progress, or maybe the dog is behaving more unsettled then you might need to change tack.
Don't jump straight into using a dog training tool without at first seeking the help from a professional for their advice, there are thousands of qualified dog trainers or behaviourists out there so get in touch with one in your area. With our pets it is always about balancing our feeling s about them with needing to practically find a solution for the long term benefit between ourselves and our pets.
All dog training methods should be viewed in the short term to try to find a solution and hopefully as a result of the training our bond with our pets should strengthen. Further dog training tips coming soon from www.easyanimal.co.uk
