Dog Training: Getting Your Dog’s Attention (Part 1)

This article is about the very first 7 days of training your dog. We are basically going to apply a few techniques created from a well respected dog trainer, Mr. William Koehler. Your dog’s first 7 fays should be praised when doing the long-line method. This is considered one of the best innovations in dog training.
Even if the first few days seem hectic, make sure you follow the methods to the “T”. This will help make your dog more obedient than ever before. He will learn much faster and easier. The first day of training. During your very first day of training, simply take your dog to the park, sidewalk or even your back yard where there is less distractions. Then place his training collar on and make sure it is well fitted. Simply tie one end of the long-line to the “free ring”. Then hold the opposite end of the long-line with a hand and choose a spot at around 30-45 feet away. This can be a hydrant, a can or even a section of grass. Try walking fast in a single line to that area.
Make sure you allow nothing to stand in your way — including your dog. Your dog may begin wailing, this is a sign that he would rather go in the opposite direction and you are not listening. Your dog may even roll over to his back and place his legs up in the air. This is a sign that he doesn’t want to walk along with you.
Your dog may even try resting right in front of you. This means you forgot to ask his permission to walk and he wants to stand still.
During dog training, you have to keep something in mind and that is you are training your dog, its not the other way around. Usually, during the very first 60 seconds of dog training (during the time you’re walking 45 feet) your dog may check your will. It is important that your pet develops assurance/
Your dog will eventually develop his own assurance, only if he is aware that you will go from one point to another. Once you have reached your chosen location, your dog’s learning process will have been imbedded within his mind. So, all you have to do is stand there for around 45 seconds to 60 seconds. Make sure you look around and monitor everything around except your dog. Avoid looking at him.
This may help entangle emotional struggle. When you are around 45- seconds away from your dog, choose another spot around the same distance or so without tugging on his lease. Just walk right to the spot. Make sure you don’t allow your dog to stand in the way. Even if you have to clear your throat to capture your pet’s attention. Never ask your pet’s permission — just walk on. Finally, when you have reached your destination, simply pause once again for around 45 seconds to watch your surrounds with the exception of your dog. When you pick your location, make sure you do it without warning.
You should try this process for around 15 minutes.
