Our lovable, furry companions are often mischievous and naughty sometimes. The knee-jerk reaction is to shout “No!” or “Bad Dog!” but let’s face it, that rarely works. So we asked certified dog trainers to share a number of their best training secrets, and that we found it’s easier than you would possibly think to urge the results you would like.
10 -Offer high-value rewards
There’s nothing wrong with a well-deserved “Good boy!” and tummy rub, but they’re simply not as rewarding as that coveted, freeze-dried liver or another delicious doggie treat. you only got to determine what treatment your dog will go crazy for when performing new or preferred behaviors. “Exploring your dog’s high-value food rewards may be a lot of fun and a part of the method,” says Russell Hartstein, certified dog behaviorist and trainer and CEO of Fun Paw Care. “Always carry a pouch or bag together with your puppy’s daily allocation of food and much of treats in it to show your dog appropriate new behaviors.” Just make certain to think about these treats as a part of your dog’s daily food allotment, otherwise, you may finish up with an overweight pup on your hands. Got puppy fever?
9- Train during a boring environment
Ever try teaching your fur baby something new at the dog park or while interacting with people? It probably didn’t go also needless to say. Here’s why: an excessive amount of distraction. “Initially, like any new behavior, you would like to start during a boring, non-distracting environment, typically an area inside your home with no toys, together with your dog on a leash,” says Hartstein. And keep those high-value treats handy for rewards.
