Guard dog training is now common in many places. In many homesteads, most of
these dogs are bought with the aim of providing security to the owners especially at
night. However, some of these dogs are however untrained simply because of the fact that
the owners don’t really see the need of them being trained something that is very much
essential to them if they need maximum results from these dogs. Training a dog is very
important if you wish to be served properly by the animal.. This by far means if you are
having a dog within your home and you want it to guard you, you have no option other
than to make sure you train it for that respective job. Below are some of those tips you
should consider when guard training your dog.
Always make sure that your dog barks when necessary This means that in case
the dog notices something unusual even during the day and it barks, take that
responsibility and reward it with something to eat. This to the dog means that
in case the same happens in future again it is supposed to bark simply because of
the incentive you the owner gave it when it barked at something unusual.
Some dogs are however too noisy; this issue has to be addressed by ensuring that
this kind of dog is taught to be quiet at times and barking the only time when
there is something unusual. This can be tried out by uttering the word quiet to the
dog whenever it barks without a reason. As this trend continues, the dog comes to
realize when its supposed to bark and when not to.
Guard dog training is also advised to be carried out especially to young dogs so
that they can actually grow knowing all the essentials when it comes to guarding.
