Humanely Train Your Dog

 

Humanely Train Your Dog
By Christina Bultinck

If you’ve never had a dog before, then the only stories you’ve heard about training are probably those of people shoving a puppy’s face in his accidents, or screaming at the dogs. The great Abraham Lincoln once said, “Force is all-conquering, but its victories are short-lived.” You may force and scare your dog into obeying you—but for how long? By using force with your dog, he may become more aggressive, and if you decide to give the dog up, you’ve now ruined his chances of being adopted because aggressive dogs, unless saved or rehabilitated, or often put down. So, think about the long term consequences of your short-fuse actions. Every cause has an affect, be it negative or positive—even when it comes to potty training your puppy.
 
Some owners treat puppies and new dogs poorly during the potty training and retraining period and then wonder later why they don’t have a good relationship with their dogs. There is a lot of advice online about how to potty train a dog, some good, some inhumane. A new dog owner may not know the difference. With that in mind, here are things never to do when interacting with your dog:
 
Never scream at or hit your dog. If your dog has an accident, point to the mess and say, “no”, then take him outside and reward him enthusiastically when he goes outside. Never scream at the dog or stick his nose in it.
 
Never lock up your dog (this is different from crating, which is an effective method.)
 
Never crate your dog all day unless it is for the dog’s own safety.
 
Never hit or kick your dog. 
 
Never yank, pull, or drag your dog by the leash.
