6 Key Tips for Training Your Dog Effectively!

When you have a puppy or a dog in your home, you expect big things from them without realizing it. Through my experience I have seen so many owners expect so much of their dogs without actually realizing what they are asking!

6 Key Tips for Training Your Dog Effectively! Some examples are:
  • Expecting their dog to come back to them in a dog off leash area from the moment they have the dog.
  • Expect the dog to be quiet and sit nicely whilst the owner is playing a sport right next to it.
As you can imagine these are quite impossible and sets the dog up to fail straight away.

Some Key Things to Remember for Successfully Training Your Dog to Do Pretty Much Anything You Want Them to Are:

  1. Consistency
  2. Repetition
  3. Follow through
  4. Consequence if action is incorrect
  5. Praise if action is correct
  6. The timing of these last two
The reward or payment for the dog needs to be given straight away or else you've missed the moment. It's the same with corrections! If you missed the behavior going wrong, you cannot tell your dog off as they will not understand what they have done wrong. Patience is also required, I liken to training a dog to learning a musical instrument, it take time, practice, and my words to all my clients is "˜what you put into your dog training, is what you will get out of it.' So, with all of these put together you will start to make good headway with training your dog. Remember lots of practice each day, even just ten minutes every day will make a big difference and you will also improve the relationship you have with your dog. Good luck!

Why Did I Wait So Long?

I should have bought these years ago. Easy to use, easy to clean, and tons of headaches saved in trying to keep a blanket or covering on the car seat when taking the dogs on the trails, camping, etc. Highly recommend.

Terrific product at a great price

I am beyond pleased with everything about my new 4Knines split rear back seat cover! The fabric is soft and attractive. The fit in my 2018 CR-V is perfect. Dirt just brushes off it, and water beads and wipes right off. It couldn't easier to put on and take off. This is a wonderful product at a great price.

XL Back seat bench cover

Love our new purchase from 4Knines. We were looking for a back seat cover that would fit our new 2017 F250 crew cab and this one fits perfect. Highly recommend for those wishing to maintain their seats. The material is excellent quality and it’s quick and easy to put on and take off. We also have the bucket seat covers from this company for our 2015 Yukon Denali and have gotten a lot of use out of them over the last couple of years and they are still in excellent condition and so are our seats. Thanks 4Knines for a great product!

great product, sturdy, XL great fit for new 4Runner, cleans easy

I was worried this product might not hold up since one I recently purchased from another company ripped w/in 2 weeks from my 30lb Aussie pulling on it when trying to get into the back. I have been extremely pleased with the XL cargo liner. The straps are much more durable with more stitching and better fabric. I have a 50 lb Border Collie mix and 30 lb Aussie. They have already put the liner to the test!!! I have used it numerous times in the short 2 weeks I have had it. The XL was a great choice for my new 2017 4Runner. It allows me to strap to the front headrests and protect the whole back of the SUV. The skirt protects the bumper. It is too long when I only strap to the middle seats but I just fold under the extra fabric and still have the skirt. I use the full length most of the time and reason I got the XL. The fabric is sturdy and protected the back when the dogs spilled water. So far I have used it to haul bags of topsoil, go on a camping trip and visit family. I purchased the liner mainly to protect the back b/c we have flyball practice every week and tournaments every month. That's a lot of in/out for equipment, doggies and crates. I was very glad to see the edges fold up to protect the wheel wells. I am extremely pleased with this product and sorry I wasted money on my first purchase from other company. I have already recommended the liner to fellow flyball teammates. Shipping was great also. I ordered on a Sunday and it arrived Sat. So far I have just swept the dirt off and used a shop vac. Cleans up well and easy.
