Five Tips to Train Your Labrador RetrieverTraining your Labrador Retriever is very easy. All that’s required is dedication, patience along with some simple techniques and you’ll train them successfully.

Below are 5 Useful Tips for how you can break in a Labrador Retriever with great results:

1. To avoid the Labrador Retriever from becoming confused and so that they will be able to understand instructions quickly just 1 person should be responsible for training your Labrador Retriever at first. If too many individuals try to train a Labrador Retriever at the same time this will stop progress.

2. One should utilize positive reinforcements. Once a Labrador Retriever does something right, the trainier must reward the action so he will understand that what he did was correct. If a Labrador Retriever will not understand and follow your commands, never berate him. Labrador Retrievers aren’t as smart as us, they take longer to learn. What you must accept is that they might not easily follow your instructions in just 1 training, it requires repeated actions to teach the Labrador Retriever successfully. Do not punish your Labrador Retriever because he might develop timidness which will hinder his learning and readiness to be trained. You might use snacks in order to reward a Labrador Retriever, although you should not overuse it.

3. Teach skills 1 at a time. Make sure to train him on 1 command after another. If he is unable to learn it, try to stay on that instruction only because trying new skills will probablly just confuse the Labrador Retriever. Begin with the basics.

4. When you are executing orders, keep your tone cheerful so the Labrador Retriever will cheerfully submit to the commands. Labrador Retrievers respond to a quiet and confident voice. When you shout out loud, he may become annoyed and startled.

5. Train the Labrador Retriever in multiple places. If you keep a Labrador Retriever in just one particular place like your home, he will not be able to adapt to a different space with different individuals. Take him to your park or around the neighborhood. This will help your Labrador Retriever get used to different breeds and people.
