How would you rate your dog’s training on a scale from 1 to 10? The chances are, you didn’t rank your best furry friend a 10. Why is that? The simple answer is that training your pet can be extremely difficult to establish, maintain, and have fun with. From the obvious language barriers to the distractions that pop up every single day, training your pet can easily become inconsistent, negative, and easy to give up on.
Barx Buddy understands that dog training can be difficult which is why they’ve created a small, portable training device that helps you to train your pup in a positive, effective way. Barx Buddy also understands that what to do and what not to do when training your dog can be overwhelming. That’s why we’re sharing 4 common dog training issues and why you need Barx Buddy.
The number one mistake that pet owners make is inconsistent training. It’s important when training your dog any behavior, that it is being established and monitored consistently. Anything other than consistent training can give your pup mixed signals between what you’d like them to do versus what you’d prefer they avoid doing. With Barx Buddy’s portable dog training device, you can slip it on your leash, wrist, or in your pocket to ensure that you always have it with you and can continue your pup’s training on every walk, outing, and play date.

It’s easy to become frustrated with your pup. You will have good days and bad days when it comes to their training, but it’s important to ensure that you’re not placing that frustration into your training. While positive reinforcement often elicits the most successful training, it can be difficult when your dog is barking, biting, or any other undesirable behavior. Oftentimes, pet owners tend to resort to yelling or grabbing their pup in times of desperation. Barx Buddy works to safely gain your pup’s attention with a high-pitched noise that allows you to take them away from the distraction and back to you (and your positive training methods!).
It’s easy to misunderstand your dog. They’re not exactly telling us how they feel, after all. Despite the obvious language barrier, however, it’s important to ensure you’re working towards understanding your pup as best as you can. For instance, was your dog doing well on their walk until they began barking at a squirrel, your neighbor, or any other distraction? Yelling won’t help, as that can be misconstrued as mutual excitement. To your dog, that distraction is simply the most reinforcing thing on their mind at the moment. Barx Buddy’s high frequency noise helps you to become more interesting than the distraction which helps to stop the undesirable behavior in its tracks, by redistributing their attention back to you!
While consistency is the basic building block to training your dog, growth is important to ensure that your dog’s training keeps them physically and mentally stimulated throughout their entire lives. Once you’ve established the basics, training can be a great opportunity to keep your dog physically and mentally stimulated. Barx Buddy helps to ensure that they are there through every step of your dog’s lifelong training!
