If you punish good behavior it will definitely confuse your pet. This kind of attitude should not be practiced.
– Do not punish good behavior
– Know when to punish your dog
– Punishment is part of training
An example of this kind of dog training mistake is when you want your dog to defecate outside your house, you must be with your dog until he does the action. If you leave him alone outside, it will look like you are punishing him for doing the right thing.
Another example is calling your dog and then punishing him. This will make him have doubts or second thoughts of approaching you when you call him by his name. Only call your dog’s name if you are not punishing him.
Know when to appreciate good behavior and when to punish good behavior. This will serve as an important factor in your training regimen. It will help your dog understand what kinds of behavior are appropriate.
