Pulling And Tugging On A Leash

Another behavioral problem that dogs have starting from their puppy days is pulling and tugging on a leash. This is another one that can be started and encouraged by dog owners. When you play games with the dog, such as tug of war, it makes the dog feel like they can continue to do the pull and tugging bit.

This can start a bad habit that can be difficult to break. If you have a body harness, it can be used when you are training your dog not to pull and tug. It can also be used when you have to retrain your dog to stop pulling and tugging.

Work with the dog so that they can accept and use the harness the same way it would use a collar on their neck. If you are walking the dog, get a toy for them so that you can make them stay at your side.

You can also use a training collar. This collar can be used if you are having problems training them not to pull and tug. Even if you use a choke chain, you can train them in the same way. Regardless of which one you use, make sure that it fits correctly around their neck.

It’s important that it’s not too big or too tight for them. As you are walking with your dog, the leash should remain loose. If they pull ahead of you, change directions so that they will end up behind you. This should be done before it gets to the end of the leash. Do not allow the puppy or dog to pull you.

While they are still young, they need to learn how to walk the right way. As they get older and larger, it’s crucial that they are walking correctly. As you are correct him, do not yank or pull on their neck. Just make a gentle movement and they will respond. Using too much force can cause the dog to become agitated.

Cat Training Basics

When it comes to cat training techniques, there are some feline based systems that are recommended for more action proven results.

The positive reinforcement and aversion stimulus are probably the only clear way to try and get the cooperation of the cat to comply with the owner’s instructions.

The Basics On Cat Training

Some owners use tactics such as spraying with water misters, loud shakers or any startling noise to show disapproval for certain behavioral traits. In some instances these methods work very well, while in others it seems to create confusion and fear in the cat as it does not really understand what the owner is unhappy about.

This is even more complicated when the cat associates these actions with play as some cats do actually enjoy being sprayed with water, thus the initial reason for implementing such corrective measures does not really seem to work at all. Other methods that can be used to make the cat understand its negative actions would be to use a stern and commanding voice, to show disapproval when a particular undesirable actions is being committed by the cat.

In most cases, this has proven to be very effective and certainly deters the cat from the action, even if it for a short time. Most experts would agree that using physical negative behaviors such as hitting the cat will not be beneficial to the animal and will also cause the animal to fear the owner. Physical beatings will also cause the cat to undergo behavioral changes which will eventually create a lot of stress and other misbehavior patterns.
