The Three Rules For Training

The three most important rules for training are:​

  1. timing

  2. consistency

  3. motivation


A dog's memory for association is about 3 seconds maximum. You must immediately praise or correct your dog's behavior for the dog to connect the association.


Your dog should get the same response to a behavior every single time he exhibits it. For the rules to be absolutely clear in your pup's mind, it must be black and white as to when he gets a correction and when he receives praise.


Receiving positive reinforcement and praise or meaningful correction is imperative. Everything you do with your dog should be motivational for him or her.
