In agility your dog has to be trained to run courses. You can train him on obstacles separately or you can train him on a dog training course, either option is ok but a course is much better in the long run.
Most dog agility handlers have had experience running and training their own dog but when new handlers arrive at a club they have had no experience in agility and need all the help that they can get! So advising them about dog training courses is the best way to start.
From a reader:
I am the owner of two miniature dachshunds who share my house and home. Many dog owners would rephrase that and instead call me the human who shares the house with the dogs. Dogs are indeed wonderful creatures.
Recent experiences have made me reflect upon and notice things about dogs and their presence in my life. I grew up with dogs so was taught at a young age to appreciate and treat animals with loving care. I recall clearly watching our pet Boston Terrier comfort my little brother who sat on the floor crying about something.
This article has been posted elsewhere, but the suggestions bear repeating. This is one of the first steps in training a well-mannered, polite dog.
When you bring home that adorable puppy her dog behavior is so cute. She puts her feet up on you to get your attention, jumps in your lap, jumps up and down on her hind legs begging to be picked up.
And what do you do? You reinforce all those dog behaviors. Give her attention, pick her up, make sure she’s comfortable on your lap. Then, lo and behold, she grows from 15 pounds to 75 pounds and is still jumping on you. That cute puppy behavior is now bad dog behavior. In fact, it’s downright maddening and you can’t get it to stop.
Caring for a Doberman is not always an easy task. Your dog comes from an energetic and intelligent breed, so improper care can result in frustration, destructive behaviors or even poor health. Recognizing the best ways to take care of your Doberman will ensure that your pet is as happy as possible.
Vaccinate Your Dog
Always vaccinate your dog when it is recommended. A rabies vaccine, tetanus shot or similar vaccinations can help protect your dog from common or life-threatening diseases. Furthermore, it prevents you from facing hard decisions.
An important part of dog training involves a step called distraction proofing, which reinforces the commands and behaviors that a dog has learned by making sure they are able to follow through even when distractions are present. Some trainers view this as the final phase of training, while others integrate it in with the rest of their teachings. It’s not uncommon for dog owners to find that their pets are great at obeying instructions in training class or in the living room at home, but once they venture into a new environment, their furry friend seems to have forgotten everything they learned. Proofing is a technique designed to help with this problem, and can be implemented with the tips below.
