Big day! You finally became a puppy parent and your head is full of the ideas on how to train him/her to do all kinds of tricks. It is not that easy as it looks from the first sight – it requires tons of patience, time and determination. DOGO app creators noticed that these are the 5 most common dog training mistakes that puppy parents make.
Do not punish your dog!
DOGO app uses positive reinforcement method to train your dog! How does it work? Whenever, your dog behaves well or performs what he/she is asked for, reward your dog with attention, treats or toys. After some time your dog is more likely to repeat the behaviour. You want to have a friend, not a dog who is afraid of you.
Leaving your dog to play in your garden only
Socialise your dog! Immediately when you get your puppy introduce him/her to as many stimuli, different people and experiences as possible. The socialisation period starts closing with 16 weeks, so hurry up!
Do not rush in training
Start with easy tricks like sit or down and slowly build on them to more complex commands. DOGO will generate daily training according to your progress made. Do not forget, that it is important to regularly repeat the tricks that your dog already knows!
Not agreeing on rules
Everyone in your family needs to agree on what is expected from your dog. A clear set of rules will make it easier for your pup to understand if: he/she is allowed on a sofa, where is the resting space, can he/she bring a chew toy on the carpet, etc. If you are having problems do not hesitate to contact DOGO specialist through a helpline. They will try their best to provide you with a detailed answer, how to overcome the problem.
