How to Measure your Dog. A dogs coat size is measured from the base of the neck up to the base of the tail. Be sure that your dog is standing squarely on the ground with its head up to get an accurate measurement. Measure the dog from the base of the neck up to the end of the body while your dog is relaxed and looking ahead. It is better to order in even sizes that range from 8 inches to 28 inches. The size 13 inches is the only exception to this rule. If the tail of your dog goes up, round down. Also, if your dogs tail goes up, round up.
Some of the basic puppy training commands are "sit," "stay," "come," "down" and "heel". When you say the commands, remember to say them loud and clear. The dog need to hear the commands as many times as possible, so he start to associate the word with what you want him to do. Remember to praise your dog when it responds correctly to the command. This will encourage your dog to response to the command correctly the next time you do it. At the beginning use treats but in the future you can use affection such as a belly rub, a pet on the head or verbal praise as the reward.
Before giving the command to your dog, say his name loud and clear to get his attention; then say the command. Probably you will need to repeat the command few times. Try not to use negative reinforcement. Don’t command your dog to come to get punish because this will teach your dog that when he comes he will get punish, what will make it much harder to train him to do so. Make sure you keep any frustration out of your tone of your voice. If you start feeling frustrated, just take a short break. The dog can sense that you are frustrated and will start to associate the training sessions with your frustration. You can’t hide that you are unhappy from your dog. Dogs are able to feel emotion, so try to be calm and relaxed, firm and confident.
