House training a dog can be challenging for a dog owner but if you are concerned about your pet and your relationship with him then you should try to at least train him in terms of the proper places to urinate and to defecate. House training a dog can be a test of willpower for both your dog and you included. You have to be very patient and avoid shouting at your dog if he accidentally does his thing inside the home despite your earnest efforts to house train him.
Start your dog house training
To start your dog in the house training process, it is important that you should establish a good working relationship with him. It may sound crazy, but try to talk to your dog by sharing words of encouragement to him. He may not interpret every word that you say, but he can feel the dedication you give to make him a better dog. For training on his elimination manners, you should try to open the areas at your home, and locate where your dog goes when he has the urge to defecate. Probable he will go to the gardens or any place he considers as private for such an activity to do. Take note of the place, and allow him to go to that place again and again if he feels urges to drop his waste. But if he is littering anywhere around the house, try to transport him outside if you notice his actions at once. Do it for several times until it will stick to his thoughts that you want him to defecate outside the house and not inside the house.
Moreover, when your dog is urinating somewhere else than where you want him to be, it is important to do the same thing as to when he is defecating. He will probably pee in places outside your house, and he will leave a mark on that place instantly. Allowing him to do it in a constant manner will give him the initiative that the right pee place is the one you desired for him. You should also limit your dog's oral fluid intake, so that his bladder contents and movements will be controlled. Doing so will give some adjustments to your dog's urinating time of at least four hours interval. Some dogs that are poorly trained on this aspect will urinate every hour in any place they want to.
Another dog house training you can do is dog obedience. It is helpful for both the owner and the dog. You can do this by strengthening your bond with your dog and by teaching him proper communication. Knowing how to communicate with your dog makes it easy for you to make him obey your commands. You should utter it loud over and over again so your dog can remember them. While it is true that dog house training is a complex task, you should also remember that doing such is also advantageous not only to your dog, but to you as the owner. Keeping in mind that he is part of the family makes the task easier to execute. It's just like raising a little baby boy, teaching him the proper ways to behave.

Collars come in a wide variety of styles, colors, and materials. The two common types of collars are training collars and buckle collars.
The purpose of a training collar is for you to be able to guide your dog or to check your dog if necessary. (A check is a tug on the leash followed by an immediate release of tension on the leash.) A check is used when you want your dog to stop doing something. However, the check is a form of negative reinforcement and an unpleasant experience for any dog.
Collars for the trained dog are called buckle collars. They are either leather, nylon, or canvas. For the untrained dog, buckle collars are virtually useless. Trying to control a dog with a buckle collar would be difficult. Some dog owners prefer to use a harness, which is perfectly fine for dogs that do not pull or for small dogs, where pulling is not terribly objectionable. But for a medium-sized or large dog that pulls, harnesses are not a good idea because you give up the control that you are trying to achieve. The dog literally leans into the harness and drags you wherever he wants to go. The only exception for using a harness on an untrained dog is if the dog has a neck injury.

Take the ownership of your dog
Training a dog is very hard work. It requires a lot of determination and persistence to make sure that whatever it is that you are trying to do get through to him. This article has in a way become a series because I strongly believe in what I am writing and what I am trying to get across to everyone that reads this.
Needing to master the walk
I believe in taking ownership of your dog and not simply getting rid of him because you can't take care of the problem that in most cases you created anyways. I believe that when you get a dog and you want to him or she to be the best they can be it takes hard work and dedication to attain that goal instead of laziness. Owning a dog is hard work and takes time to have him act the way you see fit. One of the most basic yet most highly effective techniques to training a dog is to simply take him out for a walk. It may seem very dumb that I say that a walk is all it takes but if each and every single one of you knew how significant a walk is to your dog than you would also agree with me.
Walking your dog
The walk is your chance to make sure that your dog knows that between you and him you are the pack leader and he is a member of that group not the leader of the group itself. This is important that he knows this because if he doesn't know and he thinks that he is the leader there will be a clash between you and him and it is one of the main reasons why animals are sent away. Dog owners don't understand that they are the root of the problem and not the dog. During the walk you need to make sure that you exude a calm and assertive attitude because dogs are highly sensitive to negative energy. When you walk your dog make sure you hold the leash in a way that gives you control over how he walks and how far he can travel. When he pulls make sure you are holding it with two hands. There will be times where he starts to go ahead of you for whatever reason. Your job there is to snap him out of it not by pulling the leash up but by yanking it to the side. Pulling up only causes him to become stronger and go forward even faster.
