Most dogs live with people who want them to behave in ways that make them pleasant to be around, keep them safe,
and provides for the safety of other humans and pets. Dogs do not figure out basic obedience on their own. The
fundamental rule that must be remembered is that one should never apply human standards of society onto the dog
with the assumption that the dog will understand.

The hardest part of training is communicating with the dog in a humane way that the dog understands. However, the
underlying principle of all communication is simple: reward desired behavior while ignoring or correcting undesired
behavior. Basic pet obedience training usually consists of six behaviors:

Sit
Down
Stay
Recall ("come", "here" or "in")
Close (or loose-leash walking)
Heel
Up (standing up without jumping)

Corrections are a form of punishment[. Corrections can be physical i.e. leash correction or mental i.e. withdrawing a
reward. The dog's personality, the behavior and the importance of the correct behavior should all be taken into
account in using corrections with your dog. In a nutshell negative corrections should only be used to eliminate a
behavior and positive rewards to repeat a behavior.

Professional dog trainers train the dog's owner to train his or her dog. To be most effective, the owner must use and
reinforce the techniques taught to the dog. Owners and dogs who attend class together have an opportunity to learn
more about each other and how to work together under a trainer's guidance. Training is most effective if all those
who handle the dog take part in the training to ensure consistent commands, methods, and enforcement. Classes
also help socialize a dog to other people and dogs. Training classes are offered by many kennels, pet stores, and
independent trainers.

Group classes may not be available until the puppy has completed all of its vaccinations around 3 – 4 months of
age; however, some trainers offer puppy socialization classes in which puppies can enroll immediately after being
placed in their permanent homes as long as disease risk is minimal and puppies have received initial vaccinations. In
most cases, basic training classes accept only puppies who are at least 3 to 6 months old; however, it's
recommended to start training as soon as the puppy comes into your home. Puppies may also be trained individually
by the trainer visiting the dog's home beginning as early as 8 weeks.

A puppy requires discipline, consistency, and the patience of its owner. The puppy training phase is integral in
raising a healthy and happy dog and keeping a safe and fun home environment.

Dogs are expressive and may communicate needs by biting, whining, and getting fidgety. Changing one's own
conduct may be effective in changing a puppy's behavior.

House training is an important issue for puppies. Various methods of house training will work although the key is to
be consistent. With regularly enforced rules, litter box, crate, or paper training can be successful.
