Five Tips to Train Your TornjakTraining your Tornjak is pretty easy. All that’s required is dedication, patience along with a few easy to learn tricks and you’ll teach them successfully.

Here we share five Helpful Suggestions on how you can break in the Tornjak successfully:

1. To prevent your Tornjak from getting disoriented and in order that they can begin to recognize commands easily only a single person should train the Tornjak at first. When too many individuals attempt to train the Tornjak at the same time this may stop progress in its tracks.

2. You must use positive reinforcements and feedback. If your Tornjak follows commands, you should praise it so he will realize that what he did was welcomed. If the Tornjak won’t follow instructions, never scold him. Tornjaks are not as intelligent as humans, they take longer to learn. What you should realize is that they may not readily obey your orders in the first session, it takes repetition to teach your Tornjak successfully. Do not push a Tornjak as he may begin to develop anxiety which will affect his learning and ability to be broken in. Trainers can give them food to encourage your Tornjak, but definitely you should not take it too far.

3. Teach lessons one at a time. Attempt to train him on one lesson after another. In the instance where he is unable to learn it, just stay on that lesson only because adding new commands will most likely just confuse the Tornjak. Have faith in the basics.

4. When you are teaching orders, you should keep your tone pleasant so the Tornjak will willingly follow your commands. Tornjaks will respond to a quiet and confident voice. If you yell, he may become annoyed and fearful.

5. Train a Tornjak in varying spaces. If you keep your Tornjak in 1 particular environment like your home, he won’t be able to adjust to a different location with different individuals. Take him to your dog park or around the neighborhood. This will help your Tornjak get used to other people and breeds.
