Five Tips to Train Your Mountain CurTraining a Mountain Cur is very easy. All that’s required is patience, dedication along with some easy to learn techniques and you will teach them successfully.

Here are 5 Top Tips for how to break in a Mountain Cur successfully:

1. To prevent your Mountain Cur from getting confused and so that they can learn to recognize instructions easily just a single person should be responsible for training your Mountain Cur initially. In instances where too many folks try to train a Mountain Cur at the same time this will halt the process in its tracks.

2. You must always use positive reinforcements. If the Mountain Cur follows commands, one might reward the behavior so that he will understand that what he did was right. If the Mountain Cur won’t understand commands, don’t scold him. Mountain Curs are not as smart as people, they take longer to learn. What you have to take into account is that they won’t easily follow all your orders in the first session, it takes repetitive attempts to break in the Mountain Cur . Don’t scold a Mountain Cur because he might develop anxiety which may retard his learning and willingness to be trained. Trainers may give snacks or food in order to reward your Mountain Cur, but you don’t want to overuse it.

3. Teach instructions one at a time. Make sure to train him on one order after another. In case he is unable to absorb it, remain on that skill only because adding more commands will most likely just confuse the Mountain Cur. Have faith in the basics.

4. When teaching orders, just keep your inflection cheerful so the Mountain Cur will gleefully submit to your orders. Mountain Curs will respond to a quiet and coaxing tone. If you ever scream, he could get nervous and afraid.

5. Train a Mountain Cur in varying locales. When you keep a Mountain Cur in just one certain space like your home, he might not be able to adapt to a different environment with new individuals. Take him to the park or through your neighborhood. This can help your Mountain Cur get familiar with other breeds and people.
