It isn’t shocking to meet somebody who thinks that labrador training is not as tough as training other breeds. This breed, well-known for its superb working ethics, is considered to be one of the most intelligent breeds in existence thus many people are becoming fond of it. Evidence to that is the rising number of registered owners in addition to being popular working breed that excels in disabled-assistance, hunting, tracking, detection and therapy works.

While you marvel at this breed’s intelligence, it helps if you’re aware of what training pitfalls to avoid so that you will be able to attain your desired training outcome. One of the most risky things every pet owner must avoid is the utilization of physical punishment. Even though you have been itching to hit your pet for urinating near the sofa, abstain yourself from doing so because it will only aggravate the problem rather than correct it. Instead of inflicting pain as a form of punishment, it would be more effective to provide correction using reward system. If you catch your dog in the act of peeing at the wrong location, distract him right away, carry him to the right location and let him finish there. Praise and reward him for completing his business. The same it goes whenever you catch him in the act of chewing or digging. Distract right away and give him toys or bring him to area allowed for digging.

One more thing that needs to be avoided is boring and long labrador training sessions. The labrador retriever is generally known as even-tempered breed but like any other dog breeds, they do get bored too. To prevent boredom, that usually ends to behavior issues, training sessions should only last for five to ten minutes. Although it helps to include challenging lessons and training activities, always make sure to finish on a positive note.

If you or perhaps your dog is not in perfect condition, training must be avoided as well. A labrador retriever, though a brilliant breed, will not learn successfully if he is unwell, nervous or stressed. Furthermore, a dog could tell whether you’re irked or upset that’s the reason training when the the two of you aren’t physically and emotionally well is best avoided.
