A well-train dog usually leads a happier and healthier life and its owner also can enjoy a trouble-free life long companion. Dog training - basic obedience, house and potty training are therefore essential and important to a dogís education.

The conventional method of dog training tips and guide would be to list a series of things that you should ìDoî and you might even know the A-Z of dog training! But sometimes what should be done can be said best by telling what should not be done. Hope you agree with me!

This article seeks to list 18 ìDonítî when you train your dog. The reasons for the don'ts will become evident as the lessons continue and each one is based upon the distinctive psychology of the dog's mind.

1. DON'T punish your dog while you are angry or lack control of yourself.

2. DON'T punish your dog with the lead or any instrument of training or anything he should associate with duty or pleasure.

3. DON'T sneak up on your dog or grab him from the rear.

4. DON'T chase your dog to catch him; he must come to you or run after you.

5. DON'T coax your dog to you and then turn upon him with the whip. You will regret the deception.

6. DON'T trick or fool or taunt your dog. It is cruel and inconsistent to tease your dog to come to you when he can not.

7. DON'T punish a dog by stepping on his paws needlessly. They are exceedingly sensitive. Don't twist his ears playfully or otherwise. Never strike him on the backbone, in the face or on the ears.

8. DON'T grab your dog or reach for him quickly. He should never fear his master, should not be made nervous by his master, and should feel that punishment given is deserved.

9. DON'T nag your dog; don't be giving orders to him constantly; don't pester him with your shoutings.

10. DON'T praise a dog for doing a certain act, then at a later time, scold him for doing the same act. If you permit him to bite your toes today and think it fun, do not strike him for doing it tomorrow, when you are not in good humor. Consistency is a chief virtue in dog training.

11. DON'T train your dog immediately or soon after he has eaten.

12. DON'T lose patience with a puppy younger than six months. Never throw or kick a puppy nor lift him by the head or leg or skin of the neck.

13. DON'T train him in feats requiring much strength or endurance until he is at least six months old.

14. DON'T work your dog without some short rest or play periods during training. A five-minute rest for every fifteen minutes of training is desirable.

15. DON'T permit everyone to give commands to your dog. While you are training him, he must be a one-man dog, depending on you alone to feed him and care for him.

16. DON'T consider tricks the chief end or the chief part of training. Usefulness is the object sought in all instruction of the dog. Acts that spring naturally from the dog's instincts are to be fostered.

17. DON'T expect your dog to be a wonderful dog after a few weeks of training; four months to a year may be necessary in order to make the master proud of him, but the work is worth the effort. Training never ends.

18. DON'T jump to the conclusion that your dog is dumb. He may differ with you believing that the trainer should know more than the dog.

To end, try to remember these 18 Doníts rules, enjoy training your dog and most importantly have lots of fun along the way!

You'll use your puppy's name over 35,000 times in it's life.  Here are seven tips to choosing a great name.



Youíve picked out the perfect puppy. You spent hours on the internet, researching the right breed for you and your family. Then you went from breeder to breeder or humane society to humane society, meeting and greeting pups until you find just the right match.

Now what? He needs a name!

Over the course of its life, you will use your dogís name more than 35,000 times. So be sure youíre picking a name you can live with and love.

With these seven simple steps, the key to finding the perfect puppy name is at your fingertips!
<ul>
<li>Dogs understand short commands. Easy names with two or fewer syllables work well.
<li>Your puppyís name shouldnít sound like any commands. ìStacyî and ìstayî are too close for comfort. Such a name will only confuse the issue.
<li>Remember, youíll be using your pupís name in public. ìStinkyî may be cute among your fellow fraternity members, but it wonít go over well at the veterinarian.
<li>Make your kids part of the decision process. Kids like it simple, too, so if calling your Champion Cavalier King Spaniel ìBootsieî works for them, consider keeping the hoity toity name strictly for AKC purposes.
<li>You may think itís an honor to name your pup after youíre favorite Uncle Norbert. Naming your baby after him may keep you in the will, but naming your puppy after him may not.
<li>If youíre bringing home an older dog, ideally, stick with the name it already owns. Canít stand it because ìBarneyî was the first boy who broke your heart? Then stick with similar sounds when choosing a new dog name. ìBarneyî morphs into ìFarleyî easily.
<li>Once youíve chosen a name, try it out for a day or so. Youíll know right away whether itís a keeper. If not, thereís always more puppy names on your list!</ul>

Take a look around you. Everywhere you are, you'll find a variety of terrific ideas on what to name your pooch.

At first glance, a couple things will stand out about your new puppy. Enjoy him or her for a day or two and take these into consideration.

<ul> <li>Appearance. Whatís your dog look like? His color, size, and personal style inspires a variety of name choices. ìStubbsî would be a great name for a dachshund pup. Or you may call a cream colored cock-a-poo ìBuffy.î
<li>Personality. Given a couple of days, your new dogís personality will really shine through. Try ìCuddlesî for the sweet little guy who loves to get cozy or ìPuddlesî for the pooch who canít seem to find the doggie door.</ul>

If you want to go beyond the basics, many famous dog names or foreign dog names can fit the bill. Consider these favorite puppy names when making your decision.
<ul>
<li>Celebrity puppy names. Today, pooches have more celebrity following than their famous owners. Chew on ìLola,î a name used by both Hilary Duff and the Osbournes.
<li>TV dogs. ìScoobyî and ìAstroî come to mind if you want to honor a famous TV pup.
<li>Movie dogs. Cool movies and cool dog names seem to go hand in hand. Cool Hand Lukeís ìBlueî would be a fitting label for a variety of dogs. <li>Comic dogs. ìSnoopyî will always be a favorite, but also consider ìDaisyî or ìOdie.î
<li>German dog names. For starters, try out ìFritzî or ìKaiser.î
<li>Irish dog names. ìFinnî fits well for any pup, as does ìMurphy,î which just happens to mean ìhound of the sea.î
<li>French puppy names. ìPierreî and ìGigiî are top contenders for any dog, especially those with a little oo-la-la in their genes.</ul>

The choices are endless. However, with these simple tips and some thought, before long, youíll have found the perfect puppy name!
