6. Use Positive Reinforcement
Dogs are sensitive and they get depressed around negative energy. If you train them using a stern voice and punish them for going to the bathroom in the house or running away, they will grow afraid and it can affect their health. They can develop serious long term emotional problems from being hit and it can suppress their immune system. On the other hand if you study training techniques that use positive reinforcement you will develop a healthy bond with your pet. Many breeds were raised as working dogs and they need mental stimulation. They like to do things for you and feel happy when they can be of service. Using treats and clickers can help them learn without negativity.
