· Set a Goal

The first and foremost tip to train anything is to set a goal. Once you have set a certain goal, you can further go for ways to attain that aim. The goal of training a dog is to have a confidence, relaxed, and well-mannered dog. Always keep this thing in mind that you have a dominant rank over the dog, so never allows him to bark at you or catch you. Moreover, do not take the quirky qualities of the dog such as clowning.


· Age of dog training

It is always difficult to train a dog who has already established his habits. It is always challenging to train a puppy but that learned behavior is long lasting, so a dog of at least 3 months should be trained for basics such as Sit! Stand! or Stay!One should start to train his dog with some simple steps, and this would make a way towards the difficult learning behaviors as well.


· Be a good trainer

Apparently, it seems that dog training is not a rocket science, you just have to read some books or watch some relevant videos and you will learn everything about training a dog. But actually, this is not a case, dog training is the most difficult task and a trainer have to be experienced one in order to understand the body language of a dog.
