How to choose the best dry food for your dog?

dog food
Feeding your dog is a vital duty of yours if you have chosen to have one these loyal friend pets.

To provide shelter, water and food are the three fundamental tasks of all owners (managers) of dogs and cats of course. A dog should be fed every day of his life (really every day?) For at least a decade.

Today, advances in food specialized in feeding pets (pet food) allow to adopt a dog without asking any technical question like “but how will I feed this animal?

Industrial give you the answer on a plate, even many trays! The supply of pet food is simply daunting. Dry food, wet food, “premium“, “ultra premium” for sterilized dogs or for dog sports, you can find everything in very good as very bad.

If the offer is currently very diverse and undeniably, it remains heavily towards dry food, croquettes.

These croquettes are the result of major technological advances in pet food (cooking - extrusion, coating, drying ), and they are truly the ones who have the monopole feed pets ..
Crackers: market leader in food

8 out of 10 owners use dry kibble to feed their dog. It is an indisputable fact, that is the source of a huge market of over 2.5 billion in France only!

The croquettes are practical, all garden centers offer, supermarkets, gas stations, offices and grooming the course veterinary clinics.

For the price, it’s like everything, there is the first prize especially in supermarkets and garden centers and high-end or “premium” in veterinary clinics. Each owner decides by himself, or through your veterinarian, who will serve the croquettes meals to its Medoro loved.

At the apparent cacophony of brands of kibble, only 3 large multinational share more than 70% market share. Mars Petcare, Nestlé Purina Petcare and Affinity have the most well-known brands such as Royal Canin, Friskies, Fido, and Affinity Advance Brekkies or Cesar Canigou and both owned by Mars Petcare.

Faced with stalls filled with packets of kibble, so do not be fooled, these international companies seek above all profit, even beyond the actual well-being of your animals.

That is why it should be as vigilant as possible in the selection of these croquettes. It is imperative for the health of your pet, to know all the tricks used by manufacturers of kibble, handling with great skill the texts of European and French legislation on the subject.

So I suggest you discover the 5 golden rules that you should always apply before buying any package of kibble. Even if your vet will recommend them, do not buy until you have passed the test of kibble 5 rules.

eating puppiesYou will discover later in this article what are the healthy alternative to crackers, and why it is necessary to have a healthy even against the advice of his veterinarian doubt.
5 golden rules for choosing the right croquettes

I remind you, do not buy your cakes before they pass this test. I guarantee you that you might fail a number of candidates, and direct you to other brands, other manufacturers.

The rules are not edited in ascending order of importance, they are all equal.
1st rule: “The more protein and minimal carbs”

9 times out of 10 you will never find the amount of carbohydrates (or sugars) contained in the kibble. Why? EU law simply does not require manufacturers to mention.

This is all the more interesting for manufacturers of pet food because dogs have so far been no need for carbohydrates. In other words, dogs can live very well without carbohydrate intake, but with intakes of protein and sufficient fat.

So there is no point for you, the owners, to know this amount is generally high in kibble.

Unfortunately for us, the manufacturers do not make life easier to discover the actual amounts of protein and carbohydrates contained in the kibble. That’s why I urge you to download this Excel sheet that you will instantly dry matter intake and calorie intake of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.

Download the Excel sheet

Just know the rate of protein and crude fat, moisture (if it is not mentioned, it is estimated at 10%) and ash (ashes or in English, and if they they are not mentioned are estimated at 8%).

At the protein level, caloric intake should be as close as possible to 56%, while carbohydrate calorie intake should approach 14%.

On your first calculations and comparisons of your first, you may be horrified by the amounts of carbohydrates, often around 45%. Please bear in mind that 25% of carbohydrates is an excellent score for kibble. Approaching closer to the figures.
2nd rule: A maximum of animal protein”

If you‘re not yet convinced, dogs are carnivores. Carnivores with great morphological, anatomical and physiological arsenal to devour and digest live prey.

Although domestic dogs now have incontrovertible evidence of adaptation to humans, and higher sugar diet, they should be getting mainly proteins from the animal kingdom.

This is why you must calculate the share of animal protein with those of vegetable protein to choose those that provide the most animal products.

To do this, you must beware of all vegetable protein intake including all gluten grains (corn, wheat mainly) that provide only proteins and serve to increase total protein intake.

Of course, the ingredients that you will take into account in these calculations must imperatively follow the rules.
3rd rule: Choose good quality animal protein, avoid the worst”

This rule complements the previous one. Beyond the amount of animal protein, which will be taken to find the nuggets with the maximum possible quality of protein is essential.

Rather old scientific studies have demonstrated the important role of quality animal protein quantity. In other words, it is better to have less animal protein in kibble, but better quality.

To find good quality animal protein, just read the label. Here is the ranking of animal protein premium to the worst:

Fresh chicken (or beef, poultry, pork), dehydrated poultry meat, dehydrated poultry proteins, poultry by-products.

An important note to this rule: some very clever manufacturers have clearly understood now that consumers read labels and seek those famous right ingredients. Therefore, some nuggets appear in first place ingredients fresh chicken”, which has the effect of relieving the consumer and phish, while following ingredients is absolutely not recommended. This trap is classic, so beware and read the entire label.
4th rule: “The animal and plant species used to appear

This rule again appeal to the current legislation. Manufacturers of kibble does not have the obligation to indicate the species (beef, poultry, pork) or vegetable (wheat, corn, barley, etc.) used.

From that moment, and if you read a list of ingredient ‘animal fat’ or or ‘grain flours “” dehydrated animal proteins, “I advise you to reset immediately and systematically croquettes in question.

Until proven otherwise, if the manufacturer does not want to know what species he uses, it’s either he simply does not know what there is in these croquettes, or that it wants you knowledge. In both cases, the risk of falling on the raw materials of inferior quality and very high.

Knowing this, beware of ingredients whose species is unknown.
5th Rule: Grain is to minimize

In canine nutrition, you should know that cereals are under heavy controversy. First, grains are first cheap manufacturers croquettes materials, on the other hand these grains provide lots of calories as carbohydrates (starches) in the diet, which greatly increases the energy value of kibble.

Unfortunately, grains have never been part of the diet of dogs, wild or tame (by today proportions). Only with the advent of modern croquettes that came heavily in grain feeding dogs.

Technically, the grain is very unattractive for the dog because they provide only carbohydrates (remember that the needs of the dog are equal to 0), very few nutrients and vitamins and greatly fatigued the dog’s digestive system, especially through the pancreas amylase synthesis.

It’s not for nothing that the fashionable alternatives croquettes are guaranteed without grains.

How to choose the kibble for his dog?
From theory to practice

In the light of these rules, you now understand why you have to compare them carefully croquettes. Go home and lay flat all the pros and cons of your candidates before you buy.

I admit that the task is not easy, especially at the start when we discover that face hidden nuggets with all that that implies.

That is why I propose a practical study of three croquettes (A, B and C) very different, which do exist on the market. These croquettes, there is a very bad lot, an intermediate and a final batch well above the others. It’s up to you to analyze and give your results by comment!

I do not want to influence anyone to a brand of kibble in particular, croquettes remain anonymous.

Lot A:

Cereals, meat and animal by-products (10%) *, vegetable protein extracts, oils and fats, derivatives of vegetable origin, sugars, minerals

Crude Protein: 22%; crude fat: 11%; Crude ash: 8%

Lot B:

Fresh Chicken (22.1%), dehydrated poultry meat and grease (14.7%), sweet potatoes, potatoes, fresh salmon (7.4%), dehydrated and defatted salmon (7.4%), fresh white fish (3.7%), small peas, powdered eggs (3%), chicken fat (3%), alfalfa, chicken sauce (2.6%), duck fat (0.8%), minerals, fiber peas, vitamins, yeast

Crude Protein: 31%; crude fat: 16%; Crude ash: 9%; Moisture: 8.5%

Lot C:

Chicken (20%), wheat, maize gluten, dehydrated poultry protein, rice (8%), animal fat, corn, autolysate, dried beet pulp, minerals, egg powder, fish oil, colostrum (0 , 1%)

Crude Protein: 30%; crude fat content: 19%; Crude ash: 7%; Moisture: 8.5%

It’s up to you. For more hesitant, I suggest you read an analysis I made on my blog.
Other nuggets?

It is important to point out that choosing wrong type of food can disturb your dog’s stomach substantially and as a result it may cause excessive diarrhea or even vomiting.  In case such scenario plays out, it would be best if you have trusted HeroCleaners at your side to help you manage this.

Of course, there are alternatives to traditional cakes. Alternating current offer of dog food in the most appropriate manner possible. The (very known as the BARF for Biologically Adapted Raw Food) diet based on raw frozen preparation or whole prey tries to recreate the diet of wild dogs, mainly meat meat, offal, bones and a very small proportion of vegetables (often pre-digested) and fruit (often spoiled).

Of course, these alternative diets are not in the good graces of the workplace, and are frequently demonized by veterinarians and faculty as I show in my survey of French veterinary schools.

Far be it from me to give you a demonstration of these modes of power, I just want to point out that there are other ways that the “whole cake” and that many owners have successfully tested these transitions you will find all necessary information on the web.

To be complete, you also have the option to direct you to a so-called domestic supply, which has those advantages and disadvantages, in which you cook (cook understand) feed your dog.
Who am I to talk about canine nutrition?

I am forced to write this paragraph because not a pipe, who am I to talk about canine nutrition and marketings pitfalls of agro-pet food?

I like me rarely self-flagellate, but I am nothing. Or a professional canine health or a veterinarian or a veterinarian, much less a student of a veterinary assistant school.

I am a young blogger passionate about human and animal nutrition which investigates below what is on our plates and in bowls of our dogs. I recently published a book on my personal blog, Hard to Swallow, in which I explain thoroughly all the conflicts of interest between veterinarians and pet food industry.

The evidence is public, and many can not awaken in you a healthy doubt, but systematically to the advice of your veterinarian in nutrition, and to all manufacturers of kibble, even if they are the best in the world.

8 tips for using toys to play with your dog

One day I received a question from a teacher who asked me, how do I get my dog to become a good player with its toys. Please bear in mind that some companions like playing excessively ways and others do not. Personally, I have been fortunate to have an extreme player dog but that is not the case for everyone.

Sometimes some dogs refuse completely to play with toys and are satisfied only with a food reward…

However, there are a few tricks to teach your dog to become a player with its toy, but still need to know which toys really are interesting to it and how many hours a day are you willing to invest and play with.

How to choose the perfect toy for his dog?

Generally speaking, there is no need to have a huge collection of toys. So it’s up to you to analyze which toy stands out in the mind of your pet.

Test well, there always is one! It could be a ball, a Frisbee, mini pudding, a stuffed dog, a toy that makes noise, a toy that makes soap bubbles, a kong, a tire, a jet pistol for dogs who like water, a stick, a ball, a node … in short there is a multitude of toys that could satisfy your animal is up to you to take the time to search and find the right one.

If you have a dog who likes to chew, so opt for a tire, a ball, a ball …

Dogs are not all the same, take the example of the famous English Bulldog Tillman, his greatest reward was skateboarding as to be known worldwide.

As you can see in the video cam that this dog was rolling object, but imagine for a moment that the same owner since childhood would initiate another Bulldog on Skateboard, do you believe it would be as buff as Tillman? Personally I doubt!

To tell you that every dog his favorite toy. In my case, my dog ​​loved to play only frisbee, he became gaga nothing to see! But remember this does not mean that yours will also look at this toy, ACCEPTANCE OR REFUSAL to you to analyze.

Maybe your dog does not like the toy but prefers toys in general, in this case JACKPOT for you as this will greatly facilitate the task.
How to have a player with his toy dog?

After finding the perfect toy for your 4 legged companion, the second step is to get your dog’s attention so he is interested in his toy.

For best results, I recommend for several days to start playing with him outside distractions and preferably during and after an education session or training as playing with her dog reinforces the positive result of the exercise performed.

Dogs love to work about 3 minutes and then enjoy a relaxing game and resume practicing if you decided. It is in this way that the dog will be happy to know because his mind will be oxygenated by power recreation.

Here’s an example: you call your dog in a park, he comes back to you as soon you give him his reward game (ball, frisbee …). Remember that a dog is rewarded more likely to come to his master, in fact I had written an article about why and how to reward his dog?

Teach his dog to gradually become player


  1. Keep your dog on a leash for a few seconds and tease him with her toy but without giving
  2. Then throw his toy for a few meters, wait until it goes to him, then grab it before your dog take it. Be demonstrative that he’s interested in!
  3.  You can use a wizard to throw the toy you take turns.
  4.  Wait patiently for your dog loses interest in the toy and looks at you.
  5.  Say “fetches” and allow it to play with his toy. Encourage him by saying “Yes good dog”
  6.  If your dog does not turn from his toy in about thirty seconds, back away slowly to increase the distance between the dog and the toy. When your pet is up to you, say “fetches” and let him get his toy.
  7.  Repeat this exercise daily, watch the goal is not to saturate or force the dog to play, so I suggest you focus sessions very short game (about 10 seconds, no more).
  8. Part 8 games of the reward should always be brief, no more than 10 seconds.


Like I said above, if your dog is not really receptive to this award by the toy, you can find something else such as food or hugs.
Why never force a dog to play?

If your dog is determined never to become player in its life, do not worry, it does not matter because our friends, the dogs, are loving animals and all the time you spend with them to congratulate them verbally and physically after exercise … is already in attention and rewards.

Forcing his faithful 4 legged companion to become player like the neighbor’s dog is a big mistake because you’ll get a degraded complicity and everything else will follow (trust me on this one).

Housebreaking your puppy – does pedigree matter

Housebreaking your puppy is a delicate, yet pretty straightforward process, which will only require you to prepare mentally for it and simply have the necessary patience for the puppy to realize what you require from it. The first and most important rule of housebreaking your puppy is to never punish the puppy as it doesn’t know better yet. You should approach it with the same care you would if you had a baby and it was pooping or peeing in its diapers. The puppies actually have an instinct not to pee or poop in their home or the space they populate. Just like with people, they would have a designated place to do this even in your house once they become older and become self aware of what they’re doing.

We’ve decided to include this video which has all the main concept of housebreaking your puppy and we’re sure that it will serve great as an example.

This video should explain the main reasons why housebreaking a puppy might seem hard at first, but becomes easier as time passes. The fact is that the puppies have the instinct not to do their business inside means that your only role in the housebreaking process is to simply guide them and show them what is appreciated, which will simply speed up the process. Puppy diapers are often used nowadays as not everyone has the time to go out with the puppy 16 times a day and their price isn’t high at all, so you could consider this as an option which will make it easier for both you and the dog.

Does pedigree matter to the housebreaking time

Pedigree isn’t a factor on housebreaking time. After researches have been made and as you can see here  the only way you could increase your dog’s intelligence is through stimulation. There aren’t any shortcuts when it comes to your dogs intelligence and taking time to help it develop skills is the only way to make any process faster. For instance if you start teaching your puppy to sit from an early stage – 2 months for example and them go to another step like lay-down, it will inevitably respond as the brain of a puppy is just like a sponge and absorbs everything. Give your puppy toys and socialize it and the process of housebreaking will become a breeze. Everyone who’s had to teach more than one dog in their lifetime will know that this way you’ll enjoy owning a dog even more. Being more involved in your puppy’s life will benefit you in a number of ways and one of these is the housebreaking process which will go a lot smoother this way.

So don’t look for shortcuts because there aren’t any real shortcuts to proper training, and definitely don’t punish or hit your dog if it takes longer to learn, as it 9 out of 10 cases it will be the owner’s fault that the puppy is learning slower than usual.

Dog pee smell removing

After the dog has already learned how to handle itself and there’s no more need for diapers or anything like that and you’re confident that the peeing inside the house is all over, there are a few options that you could take into consideration. You could either try to clean the mess yourself or simply hire a cleaning company. If you live in the UK, as the bigger part of the audience of the PedigreeSearch, there are a few nationwide options you could explore such as, homejoy or hassle, but the second two haven’t been tested and I’m not sure about the results. After a few of our readers told us good things about Housegleam, we decided to feature them in this post for that simple reason, but there are other ways around this. You could easily pick one of these options instead and save yourself a few quid, but it will take you longer.


Housebreaking isn’t the easiest process you’ll will have to deal with when your puppy is young or during it’s whole life as a matter of fact, but it could be a lot easier if you follow the instructions of people that know what they’re talking about such as Cesar Milan for example. Continue reading the PedigreeSearch website and we’ll have a lot more fun and educating articles for new dog owners of any breed with or without a pedigree.

Why beagles aren’t for everyone and anyone

Beagles are adorable and probably one of the most exciting breeds of hounds that you could get. This is true, but they are also one of the breeds that people most commonly refer to as dogs to own and look for in a smaller apartment. This being said there are more than a couple of reasons why Beagles aren’t for everyone and why you should probably steer away from this particular breed if you live a busy life and you can’t spend a lot of time with your new puppy.

First and foremost Beagles are hounds and with that in mind, it’s safe to say that their nose is the thing that leads them wherever they go. If you’ve ever owned a dog before,but from a different breed then you’ll know that there are a few crucial months at first until you get the puppy to learn the basic habits of not peeing inside and such. There are really great ways to teach your puppy and following the training guides of Cesar Milan is one of the things that will help people that are new at puppy training a lot. There are of course tons of other things that you could do like watch Youtube channels such as this one  that have lots of info on canine training guides. With all this in mind and all the great tutorials and training courses for puppies, know that Beagles aren’t the easiest dogs to train. They are often stubborn and really hard to train, because of their adventurous nature, but are just as smart as other breeds such as Labrador Retrievers or German Shepherd dogs – which are simply easier to train, because of their obedient nature. If you consider this when you’re getting a Beagle, you should be fine, but there are a number of other reasons to do it with caution. If you’re looking for a Beagle with a pedigree know that they are harder and harder to find nowadays and because of the different color combinations, it’s harder to distinguish them from the ones without a pedigree. All proper Beagles have a white end on their tail and anyone claiming otherwise is lying you just to get you to buy the puppy. This is obviously not the only sign and there are plenty of other things to read on what a proper Beagle should look like, but you can find that on the wikipedia page that we’ve quoted here for you :

The general appearance of the Beagle resembles a miniature Foxhound, but the head is broader and the muzzle shorter, the expression completely different and the legs shorter in proportion to the body.[28] They are generally between 13 and 16 inches (33 and 41 cm) high at the withers and weigh between 18 and 35 lb (8.2 and 15.9 kg), with females being slightly smaller than males on average

The true Beagle will definitely get on your nerves from time to time, but the love this small breed shows to the owners is almost without any equivalent. The small and mid-sized dogs are usually the breeds with way more energy and the Beagle is no exception, so take this in mind. We’ll continue updating this guide in the future with lots of more useful information that will definitely help you selecting the best puppy for you.

History of the German shepherd and pedigree

The German Shepherd is a great race! True, but do you know its history? Quite the opposite of what some people may think, the German Shepherd was not a cross breed with other breeds. This is the story of the German Shepherd … 

Germany, the country of origin 

We are in 1871, in Germany, in the heart of the industrial revolution. We are seeing a strong migration of rural population to big cities. Concerned about the future of farming, Empire Bismarck instituted laws to protect agricultural products. Despite his efforts, urban industry has quickly taken over. To save the agriculture, groups of enthusiasts began to pay more attention to raising cattle, sheep and dogs guarding flocks and herds. 

These dogs were extremely varied. Depending on the region and usage, the dogs were very different. Sheepdogs expressed great and strong hardiness, some independence and showed great pride. These dogs have their origin attributed to some interested enthusiasts. We note two important breeding names: Wachsmuth, Hanover and Sparwasser of Frankfurt. 

From 1877 the German breeders began to gather the sheep dogs to improve the skills of their dogs. In the chronicles of the history of the German Shepherd, we note two dog names Lotte and breeding Greif von Sparwasser. 

In 1891, two characters (Count von Hahn and Captain Rielchelmann Dunau) founded the Phylax. This company is established to promote the sheepdog and opened the first studbook for the German Shepherd. Devotees launched in dog breeding herd through crosses between different lines to unite the qualities of sheep dogs present. The company lasted only four years. It betrayed some groups of dogs located in Bavaria, Hesse, but we note two groups in particular: that of Württemberg and of Thuringia. Dogs in Thuringia were rather small, agile, had gray dress, very thick and had straight ears, above the head. Dogs of Württemberg, in turn, were larger, heavy and massive. They had, however, floppy ears. Until this selection was intended only to obtain good herding dogs. 

Breeders that time betting on selection criteria such as basic: character, point size (agility), ever erect ears and tail non trumpet. In addition, we found an article in 1896, which confirms what was expected of a working dog, at that time: in 1896, Gerland von Hildesheim presented for the first time in public, specially trained dogs for police. These dogs were successful since 1910, these types of dogs are present in more than 500 local police stations. Most of them are, of course, German Shepherd. 

The creation of the race 

In 1899, the beginning of this race marked a whole new era of dog breeding. Born in 1895 in raising Sparwasser, Hektor Linksrhein is one of those shepherds quality, straight ears. His parents are, respectively, Kastor Rüde and Lene von Sparwasser. It is purchased by a passionate and famous breeder of this time: Eiselen, the kennel von der Krone. Livestock von der Krone is located in Heidenheim in Württemburg, Germany. Hektor Linksrhein was presented for the first time in an exhibition in Hannover, April 3, 1899 Hektor was 4 years old. That day, the Rittmeister Max Emil Friedrich von Stephanitz (a cavalry captain, already retired at that time) and his friend Arthur Meyer fell on this noble subject, harmonious and high quality and decided to buy it for two hundred marks . 

In the same year, Captain von Stephanitz and his friend Arthur Meyer instaurèrent the breed standard and SV (Verein für Deutsche Schäferhunde), April 22, 1899, in Karlsruhe. The first breed standard was approved in September 1899, the first congress of the company in Frankfurt. Hektor Linksrhein became Horand von Grafrath in that year. Rittmeister von Stephanitz had renamed in honor of his estate he bought in Bavaria: the von Grafrath field. In 1900, von Grafrath Horand was the first dog oficiellement registered in studbook (the Schäferhunde Zuchtbuch – SZ). Horand was therefore numbered SZ 1. 

Captain von Stephanitz was the creator of the breed. It was through his efforts if we know the race of the German Shepherd, nowadays. Exemplary race, yes, but built for the job in the first place. 

Now include one of the most important in the history of the German Shepherd characters: Hermann Martin. Hermann Martin was an avid German Shepherd enthusiast. It was this race under the kennel name “von Arminius.” It was one of the greatest cynologists the world! This is thanks to him that the German Shepherd became the working dog in the world today. It was he who created the WUSV (Weltunion der Schäferhundverein) September 9, 1974, in Mannheim. In addition, Hermann was President of the SV (Verein für Deutsche Schäferhunde) for 12 years. He was also elected Chairman for the VDH (Verband für das Deutsche Hundewesen), Germany. Moreover, we find its breeding and breeding in most of pedigree German Shepherd today. Today, this man is a legend! 

The German Shepherd breed is continued by leading breeders in Germany and around the world. Soon reinforced for more features and natural abilities of German Shepherd breeders should expect new regulations. This is required to ensure the continuity of our beautiful breed that is the German Shepherd!

Understanding dog training – the easiest way to teach your dog

Often people get frustrated when they try to train their dog or modify its behavior. They read a lot of books and try to apply different principles to no avail. They wonder if there is a secret they do not know. More often than not, there is. One should also be mindful of the fact that dogs, too, have somewhat of a different character. That, however, does not mean they can not be tamed. It all comes down to proper approach to the subject matter and results can be observed shortly. People get frustrated sometimes and resort to beating, yelling and all sorts of negative encouragement that rarely produces the right results.

The problem with this scenario is that they brutalize their dog. By applying such tactics, they prevent their dog to learn what they would like it to learn. A dog owner must be consistent with his training so that the pet understands what he or she is trying to teach. 

So what are the secrets? 

The expert Daniel Stevens wrote a book called The Secrets of Dog Training. It details the methods you should use to train your dog quickly and easily. Many different scenarios are treated and behavior problems are discussed. 

Behavioral problems can be extremely frustrating and difficult to treat. Does your dog run outside every time the door opens? Does your dog barks all the time when he is outside? Perhaps you are trying to find a way to keep it from disappointing or embarrassing you. 

There are many behaviors that dog owners face and should try to change. This can be a challenge with a puppy, but faced with an adult dog, things can be even more difficult. People often think that you can not change the behavior of a dog once it became an adult which is not true just as its incorrect with humans. Granted, it is far more difficult to accomplish, yet, not impossible by a long stretch. 

The training can teach you how to work with an adult dog to make it obedient and willing to comply with every command you issue. You will quickly see that the myth that you can not teach an old dog new tricks will be dispelled. This may take longer for your dog to relearn things about his behavior, but it is possible with patience and consistency. 

A dog with behavioral problems will be a challenge to take for a walk. It will pull on the leash and trying to get away when it sees something interesting. By the time you get home, you’re exhausted and frustrated. If you teach your dog proper behavior when it is on a leash, your walks will be much more pleasant for you and your pet. 

The little tricks to know 

Never use the word “come” when you are angry against it or your dog will learn to associate this with the trouble. You will have trouble to bring it to you, even if it’s for something he would have liked. There are other ways to approach it when it does something wrong. 

The key for your dog to obey your commands is to make sure it understands what you want. As he does not understand human language, it uses the tone of your voice and body language to develop a sense of understanding what you are really trying to convey. When the owner is frustrated and reflected in his voice, the dog will be even less likely to understand what is said. 

By learning the techniques used by professional dog trainers, you can teach your dog to be well behaved and disciplined. That, however, will come at a certain price. You will have to be very patient, understanding and consistent in your actions in order to make sure your dog follows you where you want to go. Remember not to get easily frustrated and to lash out or needlessly be aggressive towards your dog. These kinds of treatments can constitute an enormous setback, offsetting all the progress made up until now.
