Are you having problems with your dogs behavior? Does your dog bark all the time? Does your dog dig up your yard? Does your dog chew everything? Would you like to learn How To Train Your Dog In One Evening to stop this. These are just a few of the problems dog owners have.

I guess since you are reading this article that you are looking for answers to these problems, let me help:

Make your training sessions short and fun, about 10 to 20 mins tops, if your dog isn't having fun they won't respond in the way you want. Don't become cross with your dog during training, if you feel like your getting frustrated then call a stop the session and try again tomorrow.

Avoid confusing your dog, keep your commands short, clear and consistant. For example if your dog jumps on your couch and you say "down", the dog is going to lie down, as this is the command for lie down, what you should say is "off" as this means get off something.

Trying to get your dog to stop barking fully is almost impossible as well as being cruel to your dog, controlling your dogs barking however would be great for yourself and your neighbors. A couple of things you could try are:

1, Give your dog some consideration, dogs are pack animals and are used to having company, one of the main reasons for you dog barking is they could be lonely. Spending time with your dog playing and exercising will result in a contented and happy dog, the dog will bark less. If you have to leave your dog for long periods of time take them for a long walk and play intense games with them.

2. Your home and your family mirror your dog's pack and dogs do tend to take on traits of the pack. If your home is noisy so will be your dog, try calming the situation this will prevent him or her from barking quite as much.

Digging is a common thing for dogs to do, they can do it for all sorts of reasons, boredom, wanting to escape and also trying to reach you to mention but a few. Trying to identify the reason can be difficult but you could look at where the holes are being dug. There is a lot of truth in the saying: "the lawn will forgive your dog, surely in the grand scheme of things a healthy dog is better than a perfect lawn". The best thing for dogs who dig is to locate a part of your yard for them to dig, try burying treats or their toys to encourage them to use this area even fence it off if you need too, but give them an area where it doesn't matter if they dig.

Chewing is also a regular activity for dogs, they do it because:

1. They are trying to sooth sore teething gums.

2. They are bored.

3. They are trying to relieve tension or anxiety.

Try moving everything you wouldn't want the dog to destroy out of sight, if they can't see it they won't want it. Give them something of their own to chew, some of the most popular dog chews are: Stuffed Kongs and Nylabones.

Kongs can be stuffed with foods such as peanut butter or bananas, or even frozen items.

Nylabones come in an assortment of styles colours and textures, you should praise your dog or give them the odd treat if he or she chews these items.

Watching your dogs chewing habits will help when he or she attempts to chew something they shouldn't, say "no" and offer them their chew instead, be consistant and persevere, praise your dog when they stop chewing.
