Advanced Commands to Teach Your Dog
You've made it! Now that you have taught your dog some basic commands, and have dealt with some common dog issues, it's time to try the more advanced commands. It's important to understand that your dog may not be ready for more advanced commands. Dogs don't always work on a schedule, so focus on your dog's individual needs before moving on.
Some of the more advanced commands are just continuations of simpler commands. For example, you can have your dog sit and stay for longer periods of time now that they are ready. If you have been successfully using training techniques up to this point, this should not be an issue for you at all.
Your dog can also be taught to seek, fetch, roll over, catch, shake, crawl, climb, jump, and many more. There is nothing more fun than having a dog who is well trained and can do all of these things! Not only will people be incredibly impressed when they notice how well behaved and smart your dog is, but it will help keep you and your dog happier as well. That's not even to mention the issue of safety. Being able to follow your commands will help to ensure that your dog stays as safe as possible.
If you have been successful with some of the earlier techniques, there is no reason why you can't be successful with these more advanced commands. Your dog is now used to being trained by you, so there should be no issues. Still, there are times when you are not sure what to do, or you reach a point where you're just a standstill. When this happens, it's time to further your education and watch demonstrations of other people training their dogs with advanced techniques.
In the past, you would have had to hire an expensive trainer to give your dog the best education possible. These days, there are several courses on the market that can turn you into an expert as well. Training your pet on your own can be a great challenge for you, and it can bring you closer to your pet than you have ever been before.
Focus on advanced commands, and your dog will be more obedient than you ever thought possible. Your bond will deepen, and you'll feel incredibly connected with your pet. There are few things better than having a dog who adores you, and who is able to follow your directions, no matter how complex they get!
