Top 7 Tips for Training Your Rescue Dog

Written By: Sweety

Be patient, kind, and consistent in your training approach. Every pup learns at its own pace, so celebrate small victories and avoid harsh corrections.

Patience is Key

A strong bond with your dog before diving into commands. Spend quality time together, offer gentle pats and praise, and create a safe, loving environment where they feel secure.

Build Trust

Reward desired behavior with treats, praise, or playtime. This positive reinforcement approach motivates your dog and strengthens the bond between you.

Positive Reinforcement

Keep commands short, clear, and consistent. Use the same word or phrase each time for a specific action, like "sit" or "come." This helps your dog understand your expectations.

Command Clearness

Lure your dog into the desired position with a treat or toy, then mark and reward the behavior with your chosen method. This makes training interactive and enjoyable for both of you.

Lure & Reward

Regular potty breaks, crate training, and accident-free praise are key to house training success. Be patient, and consistent, and celebrate every clean step.

House Training 

Start in a calm, low-distraction area. Use a comfortable harness and let your dog sniff and explore while keeping the leash loose.
