How do you get your dog to obey you? It might sound like a tough mission. And it definitely is. Dogs are intelligent but they require a lot of practice and patience. Normally, patient dog owners are the ones that succeed in this mission.
When it comes to dog breeds, they can also play a role in the capacities that your dog has to actually learn and listen to you.
Some are more attentive and calm like golden and labrador retrievers, poodles, border collies, while others are just little kids that never grow up: Pitbulls, Rottweilers, Siberian huskies, beagles, etc. However, this is all very subjective.
Every dog is capable of learning, and normally it depends more on the type of owner you are than the actual dog breed. Some of the qualities you should have to be successful at this job are having a lot of patience, being consistent and having great communication skills.
Some of you might wonder when should you start training your dog?
Professionals advise you to start training your dog while he’s a puppy, between 7-8 weeks. Puppies are very much capable of learning quickly from an early age. The worst time to start training them is at their juvenile stage since they behave like 5-year-old kids. Full of energy, less ability to concentrate, and so on.
