We all hope for training the perfect Sinhala Hound, a pup that is a CGC or canine good citizen and is very well mannered and responsible at all times. Well dreams really do come true when the teaching is done with care and dedication. Remember pups learn from day one and need to be instructed what is correct, what is wrong, and proper socialization.
Pups are like young children, they demand regular direction and training. Training a pup need not be a chore, all you have to think about are a few simple principles:
Ten Tips For Training Your Sinhala Hound
- Up until your pup learns, you must keep an eye on her at all times. Whenever you aren’t able to then you will need to cage her. Make a routine for the pup, that will help her to settle easily. The plan needs to include things like hourly potty visits, eating times, break periods, walks, play time, exercise, and more. A pup that has a full day has no time for being bored or misbehave.
- Teach the pup to respect you. Sinhala Hounds stay in packs and naturally adhere to a leader. When you establish your dominance in no uncertain terms then teaching will get easy because the pup will heed orders at all times and not challenge your power.
- Utilize exclusively positive training methods. Never ever yell at, strike, or abuse your Sinhala Hound. It is not just harsh but can cause behavioral concerns. Use of electric shocks, prong collars, sprays, and so forth may possibly injure the animal.
- Teach the pup “absolutely nothing in life is free.” This is a mantra that is widely acknowledged as a helpful teaching method. As you reinforce this, the pup will learn that to get anything like affection, a walk, or reward, he has to act well.
- Show the meaning of “No,” from day one. Do not embrace actions such as jumping, growling, tug-o-war, yipping, or running out of open gates and doorways. Applaud courtesy and dismiss or walk away when there is bad behavior. The pup will certainly realize that if he is mischievous he will lose his companion/playmate.
- To remedy a habit you need to witness the Sinhala Hound in the act and surprise her by rattling a bottle of marbles. Once you have done this help him correct his behavior and immediately offer him a snack and praise. Sinhala Hounds do not remember what occurred prior so rebuking him after an occurrence is useless.
- Always call/use his name favorably. Do not say “Bad TOM,” or “No Tom,” this will induce confusion and the Sinhala Hound will presume that if you call his name then it is something bad. The dog should correlate his name with happy things like hugs, petting, walks, snacks, and such. If this occurs he will approach happily the moment you call out his name.
- Develop a coaching regimen that is short and sweet, say ten minutes three times a day. Extensive recurring trainings can be uninspiring and the Sinhala Hound is going to lose interest in learning. Make learning fun-filled and use trick training to teach orders like sit, down, come and so on.
- Connect with the Sinhala Hound and both of you will certainly love your sessions. The pup must anticipate hanging out with you and not keep away from you by turning tail or taking cover. Be sure to socialize the puppy quickly. Socialization is one of the most important teachings. The Sinhala Hound has to figure out how to be with various other animals, people, sounds, vehicles, and other activities. Therefore, gradually introduce the puppy dog when he is small to normal activities and sounds. Take him to the shopping centre/ playground, introduce him to children and other pets, and make him unfrightened of the vacuum cleaner and garden hose.
- Study everything about crate training, leash walking, house breaking, and also food training. These are remedial lessons that every Sinhala Hound puppy must understand. Know about all the characteristics and peculiarities of the breed. This will give you valuable information on how to properly teach the puppy dog.
As a Sinhala Hound parent you have countless options. You may choose to train the Sinhala Hound yourself or enlist at a high quality training school. Training a Sinhala Hound has numerous steps: kindergarten, obedience training, doggie sports, showing and conformation, as well as other components like therapy dogs, hearing dogs, etc. What values you decide to train is dependent on you along with the learning abilities of your Sinhala Hound.
