Train Them While They are Still Small.
The puppy in the video is approximately 10 weeks old and this is an ideal time to train the pet until it becomes more challenging to train after the dog reaches the age of 1-2 years of age.
Simple Instructions are Given.
Here is the owner pointing to the doorbell with his finger while saying “Ring the Bell” to the young puppy. The same instruction process is repeated again and again.
Praise Puppies As Soon As Success Occurs.
Positive comments throughout the process is very important if you want your pet to learn the acquired skill quickly. As the puppy begins to have some success in learning the skill, positive praise should be used.
Be Patient and Positive.
When training your pet, try not to get angry or raise your voice as they will have a negative impact on the learning process.
Repeat the Process Again and Again.
Following this step by step approach will ensure success. The steps are: instruction → success → compliment → instruction → success → many times praise.
Simple Not Boring Fun.
Since the emotions of a dog are much less complex than a human’s this learning process can be a simple and fun activity for your pet. It is important for the owner not to get angry or bored and play along with the dog with a smile as he learns the activity which is in front of him.
