2) Inconsistency in Commands and Training
This is especially true for dog owners. When you adopt a dog, it will need training. The training is just as much for you as it is for the dog. Many people make the mistake of thinking the dog will know what they mean. If you use inconsistent language and expect a certain result, that’s a mistake. If you’re telling the dog “out” to get out of your room, and then you say, “go inside,” well, which is it? The dog doesn’t know. He or she knows what you mean when you use one command to mean one thing. Many people also fail to realize that a command should not be an entire sentence. You’re not having a conversation, you’re teaching the dog to respond positively to a word or phrase. Failing to train yourself and the dog is a mistake many pet owners make.
