5. Control Your Dog’s Environment When Training
For the many dog owners who are only beginning to train their dogs, it can be difficult to keep the training sessions short and sweet. The key is to work on new behavior in a relaxed, distraction-free environment. When you practice your commands in a completely quiet and distraction-free environment, you will have your dog’s full attention.
As your dog’s skills progress with more and more distractions, you can introduce new distractions and objects into their environment.
Remember to keep things as simple and distraction-free for your pup as possible in the beginning.
