If you are a dog or cat enthusiast or even have a different pet and want to train it, then you should know what the main rules for that are. The first and most important one is patience, don't try to push things more than possible, your pet won't appreciate it and you will start hating the process. Be easy, try things slow and give them as many awards as possible. There are so many tutorials online that show you how to train your pet, but none of them explain the main and most important rules about training.
There is no such thing as a perfect pet, unless you train them often and teach them what you want them to know. However, animals will only react to awards, small treats or bursts of love, after they have done something right. But don't wait until the end, when they learn it all, because then they won't realize that the whole process to getting there is also important. Make the rewards as continuous as possible and equal, as well, only this way they will realize that these are actually special treats. Don't give them their usual food, but choose something they don't usually get.
Be consistent - don't let the pet dictate the tempo of the process, but don't do it too fast yourself. Wait until they are playful and in a good mood and start again and don't stop until they have actually learned something. Repeating is the most important thing when it comes to training, so make sure your dog or cat does all the little things they have learned on a daily basis. Always show them that it is a good thing to learn and give them a really special treat at the end of each successful training. That will make them want to do it all as soon as possible and look forward to the whole thing.
