Though nobody wishes to own an aggressive dog who's wild, you will want to take care how you go about disciplining your dog. Some means are down right abusive, and will only accomplish frustration and harm. Though the older methods of dog obedience training involved corporeal punishment, if this occurs, then your dog will only fear you and not respect you.


Though nobody wishes to own an aggressive dog who's wild, you will want to take care how you go about disciplining your dog. Some means are down right abusive, and will only accomplish frustration and harm. Though the older methods of dog obedience training involved corporeal punishment, if this occurs, then your dog will only fear you and not respect you.

There is rarely the necessity for physical contact with your dog, no matter what they have done. You don't want to use spanking or hitting as a legitimate means to train a pet, no matter how bad it is. You should only use physical contact as a means of affection and to keep them safe, not as a way to train.

Frequently, people hit their dogs because they're now frustrated and impatient with their animal, and they want release. That's not going to accomplish anything by way of training your dog, however, and will encourage your dog to become spiteful and full of fear. You don't want to train your dog to become aggressive, either, so it's best not to use this method.

Naturally, a dog can't speak to you in your language and let you know that they understand they were wrong. Thus, they only respond in one of two ways: to saunter off, or to become angry. Don't expect your dog to respond in any way other than these two ways. If they pee on the floor, or knock your trash over, or rip open your shoes - these are dog behaviors, and shouldn't merit your anger.

Instead, if you want to get through to your pet when he's misbehaved, you'll use your tone of voice. This is a sound your dog will recognize immediately, and you can stop your pet in time if you train him using this method. Dogs are sensitive to our inflections and tone, be sure of that.

You have to take the role of lead dog, to put it bluntly, and your dog will respect you if you treat him like he's your child. Getting your pet to listen to you is simply a matter of maintaining your own level headedness, and maintain the basic rule never to make them fear you.

If you want to train effectively, you'll also need to keep your voice at a steady tone, rather than fluctuating tone as you continue screaming. This amounts to verbal abuse, and you can scare your dog this way, too. Keep your commands brief and to the point, and let your displeasure be known through a firm, in control tone.

To summarize, the only type of touching you should give your dog is one of affection. Don't allow your anger to carry you away in a moment of rage. You will only hurt your dog as well as your training efforts, rather than inspire obedience.
