Human beings are different from animals in terms of interaction, analyzing, and intelligence

Human beings are different from animals in terms of interaction, analyzing, and intelligence. One can expect a human to pick up things with little or nil training if left long in an environment, while the same can not be said for animals. This is so as we are different species and our language also differ. Patience and understanding is required or else it will hamper the growth of the puppy into a happy, faithful and loving companion.

Thus, it is necessary to train the dog properly such that it understands what it should do or not. Moreover, if the dogs behavior is not acceptable, you need to point out the same while it is doing and not later on. This is an essential of formal dog training as dogs can correlate the teachings with the present situation. An example shall make things clearer. The owner returns home to see feces left on the floor/carpet. He/she gets angry and beats the dog using a stick. Now, the dog thinks that the master is angry because he/she has come back home and not because of the feces. Moreover, the sudden anger destroys the confidence and makes the dog scared of you. It also shall get a wrong impression that you shall beat it without any rhyme and shall mistrust you. This is natural; just as all fears a tyrant. Likewise, the dog did not understand the masters anger which looked cruel and tyrannical for it. If the owner can be provoked by small incidents to use physical abuse, it calls for attention and evaluation of ownership; as abusive atmosphere is not good for anyone (animal or human).

Hence, to avoid such situations, one should try to teach the dog during or immediately after the unacceptable behavior. Just as you would do while teaching a kid not to throw things on the ground. You shall remind them not to do so when it throws or tries to throw anything. You will not just beat up the child after seeing things thrown. The child does not understand and will not do so; but it will try to be away from you. Dogs behavior is similar to kids and remains that way always. Moreover, physical punishment is cruelty for anyone and does not serve the purpose at all. Further more, one should not forget to praise or pamper the dog after its good behavior which shall make it more eager to be disciplined.

Besides that, expecting the dog to know what is good or bad without formal training is like expecting a child to know what is correct or incorrect without proper guidance. This is unrealistic and causes frustration and anger in the owner who then punishes the dog for no fault. The owner loses the trust, faith and love of the dog.

However, we do lose temper and should make sure that the dog knows that we are sorry. They forgive and forget easily depending on the outbursts. Help your dog to know what is right or wrong. Help it be your good companion.
