Accessories for dog training in the Maxi Zoo online shop
Dog training is successful with suitable accessories
Dogs are intelligent and can learn. Without their learning ability, they could not have had a career as a working and family dog. No matter whether it’s a herding or guard dog, a sports fanatic or a lapdog, every dog has started off small. This starts with house-training and learning the basic commands, right through to demanding tasks such as looking for tracks. The raising of a dog should always be done consistently and lovingly. With positive reinforcement through praise and rewards, you achieve more than with drilling. With the right accessories and a lot of patience, you will be able to successfully train your dog.
What accessories do I need for dog training?
The most important thing that a dog has to learn is to do their business outdoors and not on the carpet. For a small puppy, this is a heavy amount of learning. There are different approaches to how to get a small dog house-trained. For example, there are special dog toilets that absorb urine and dry quickly. Of course, positive reinforcement is always very important. A necessary tool for training is therefore basically the snack pouch to reward your dog at the right moment.
What special accessories do I need for training with the dog?
During further training, it is important that the dog internalises commands and reacts to them. With clickers or dog whistles as raising aids, you give your dog clearly assignable signals. The dog learns to walk on a leash with a slip line. Retrieval is a training game which many dogs love. Balls or snack dummies are enjoyable for running after and returning. Particularly intelligent and mobile dogs can spend time as a team with their people during agility training. With hurdles, wrestling, slalom sticks and other agility devices, you can set up a real sporting area for your dog for training. In our shop you will find everything you need for dog training from brands such as Trixie, Hunter and Kong.
What do I need to be aware of with dog training?
Obedience is important so that you and your dog form a strong team. Only an obedient dog can arrange itself with its environment in such a way that it is possible to coexist with people and other animals without any problems. Dogs need a caregiver who they see as a “pack leader” and from whom the training should come. Consequences, but no exaggerated strain, and the reward principle promise the greatest success.
