If you are walking your dog there are some situations that may arise. You want your dog to respect the disciplinary rules he or she has learned, to avoid getting into problems with other animals or people.
These are some of the situations where you want your dog to disciplined to your commands.
- In crowded places keep him on a leash, to always have him under control. So he will have to know how to walk in a leash, near your foot, without pulling.
- The dog is not allowed to jump on people or animals.
- The dog shouldn’t run after bicycles, motorcycles, cars or people that are running. It is known that some dogs do that because of their hunting instincts.
- When you let the dog free, to relax, it is crucial that when he is called, he returns on the shortest distance and as fast as possible.
- At a picnic, or near food, the dog is not allowed to wander through the people or eat the scraps from under their feet. Make the dog remain away from the table or area.
- Do not allow your dog to eat food given by someone else or food found on the ground.
- Generally, small dogs are more spoiled than big dogs and they are more aggressive, anti-social and afraid of other people or dogs. The ones to blame are the owners that often amuse themselves when they see their dogs acting this way. This way the dogs get to barking and even biting their own owner.
- If your dog has had some initial training learned and practiced, you would have no problems when going for a walk.
- All through the walk, the dog is not to chew on his leash or to pull it with his teeth. If your dog is allowed, you may find one day that they have chewed right through that leash. It may be when you have safely secured them somewhere, to return to find them free and gone.
- The dog is not allowed to jump up and and put his front paws on you or others, even if he is just playing.
- Pay attention to drunken people! Many times the smell, the walk and the yelling of drunken people annoy the dog. Some drunken people are even aggressive to dogs. Stay away from them as much as possible.
