Many dog owners have no idea how to make your dog beg and the best thing they could do is ignore it until it does something they like. While dogs are very much independent creatures, they also need to learn that when you say something, they have to respond as well.

How To Make Your Dog Beg

Dogs will never understand that it is not okay to push a stranger or another dog around on a leash or walk them around at the park. They have no understanding of what the other person is saying or doing. If you want to learn how to make your dog beg, all you have to do is tell them that they can go over to where you are going and that they can come inside. You are basically telling them to follow your lead.

The next thing you should do is tell your dog that they are in their territory. Once they know that they are in their own space and not in some stranger’s, they will start to bark when they see or hear strangers. Once they realize they are not alone anymore they will be begging for your attention.

When your dog understands that there is another dog in their space, you should start to pet your dog. Try to stick your hand in between the fur so that your dog can feel the warmth and the presence of another dog in their space.

The most important thing is to keep an eye on your dog. They may not act like they understand that they have to follow your lead at first, but as they realize that they can’t do anything without your approval they will start to follow you. This is one of the easiest ways to train them to beg for your attention.

If you don’t want to spend all day in the house with your dog, then you might want to consider training your dog to ask you for things. It is possible to teach your dog to do this and you will be able to bond with your dog while training him to beg.

You should always have your dog on a leash when you are trying to train him or her to beg for your attention. If you have a large dog, then it may be impossible to keep him or her on a leash. If this is the case, then you need to give the dog plenty of praise when it obeys your commands. if you are trying to get a small dog to beg, then give him plenty of treats for good behavior.

Once your dog has learned how to ask, the next thing you want to do is to show them where they are going to go. In this case, you want to give them a treat every time you give them a command such as stay, heel, come or down and so forth. The last thing you want is to do is get them on a leash when they do something wrong and get yourself in trouble.

When they are begging properly, then you can begin training your dog to be obedient with commands. You want to start with the most basic commands such as sit, heel, stay and so forth. you want to spend a little time with your dog as you begin the training process. It will help you to build up trust between you and your dog.
