You Will Need
Be the leader
Establish your role as leader. Always use a calm, assertive voice when speaking to your dog. Dogs will try to become dominant if you show signs of weakness.
Maintain balance by fulfilling the dog's physical, psychological, and emotional needs.
Begin each day with exercise
Begin each day with exercise. Keep a consistent routine.
Don't give free affection
Don't give free affection -- make the dog work for it. He must obey all your rules and commands first.
Take time off
Take time off of training so your dog can relax and enjoy being a dog -- the way nature intended.
Remember dogs are not human
Remember that dogs are not human and that they view the world differently. Dogs communicate with their noses, their eyes, and lastly their ears. Realizing these differences will enable you to have a deeper relationship with your four-legged friend.
