Five Tips to Train Your Rough CollieTraining your Rough Collie is quite easy. All that’s required is dedication, patience as well as these simple skills and you will train them successfully.

In This Article we share five Top Tips on how to teach your Rough Collie with great results:

1. To prevent your Rough Collie from getting confused and in order that they can learn to recognize commands readily just 1 individual should train your Rough Collie starting out. When too many people try to train a Rough Collie simultaneously this may stop progress.

2. One must take advantage of positive reinforcements. Once your Rough Collie does something well, the trainier must reward it so he can realize that what he did was welcomed. If your Rough Collie does not follow or understand instructions, don’t push him. Rough Collies are not as smart as people, they make errors. What you need to accept is that they won’t readily understand all your commands in just 1 teaching, it takes repetition to break in your Rough Collie successfully. Do not berate the Rough Collie since he might develop anxiety which might hinder his learning and readiness to be trained. Trainers might use snacks or food in order to encourage a Rough Collie, but you don’t want to overdue it.

3. Teach instructions one at a time. Make sure to teach him 1 order after another. If he won’t absorb it, stay on that skill only because piling on additional skills will just confuse the Rough Collie. Rely on the basics.

4. When you are executing lessons, just keep your voice pleasant so your Rough Collie will gleefully follow the commands. Rough Collies respond best to a quiet and coaxing voice. If you scream, he may get annoyed and afraid.

5. Train a Rough Collie in varying locations. If you keep your Rough Collie in a certain place like your house, he may not have the ability to adjust to a new environment with new people. Take him to your dog park or around your neighborhood. This will help your Rough Collie get acquainted with different breeds and people.
