I am looking for a series of 20 interesting facts about dogs. I want
facts that aren’t commonly known as well as facts that are
interesting/amusing to read.
Most of the facts should pertain in some way to dog training. Please
write them in your own words–don’t copy and paste from websites or
just provide links.

    If you would like to train your pup i can give you some steps on healing, walking nicely, no bitting etc.
    -dogs are very social animals, they always want to be with you 24/7, when you are around, make sure your pup is with you. This will help with the dog being more gental and prone not to bark at others.
    -when you want your dog to come, even if he is not listening, have a big smile on your face, and use a high pitched voice. He will come as he is like “oh i am a good boy!!” When he comes reward him with praise or sometimes (first few times) give him a treat.
    -when walking, do not hold him back, the stronger that you hold him back so he stays beside you, the harder he will pull.. you need to learn “nice walk” — i can give you this.
    -If your dog has the 3 things provided he will not want to run away when you open the front door:
    1.Socialization- take him to off-leash parks and meet new people, and do not forget the off-leash parks!!!
    2.Play- get down on your knees and play with your dog everyday for at least 15-30mins. Be the best doggie buddy ever!
    3.Food- make sure you are in control of the food. Feed twice daily, do not leave the food out for him to get it whenever. If he does not eat food within 15mins take it away and do not give it back!!!
    -When your pup does something good for you, do not always rely on the treats for the praise, use your voice, it is much more helpful, the dog will do the thing over and over again so he is praised (have your voice go high and happy with a smile on your face)
    -Attention. Make sure you pet your dog and keep him happy, even give bones and make going to the vet a happy place, bring treats and praise.

    Puts bells on a rope and hang it from your door. For about a week, take your dog’s paw and hit the bell before letting it out. Within a week or two, your dog will start ringing the bell on it’s own.
