Posted by | August 16, 2017 | Behavior, Fitdog Five, Training | No Comments

We can’t emphasize enough the importance of properly training your pup!  

You remember our previous “Fitdog Five” blog post on best practices for dog training. Here is the next set of tips and tricks to add to your arsenal! 

  • Keep commands short and uncomplicated 
  • Make sure you have suitable training equipment such as treats, toys, clicker trainers, and appropriately sized leashes 
  • Use positive reinforcement by rewarding desired responses then gradually requiring more from your dog 
  • When your dog is learning something new, give him a reward every time he does it 
  • Know what type of rewards your dog responds to most. Some dogs go nuts over balls or toys while others need high quality treats or food (like doggy meatballs) 

If you have any questions, feel free to comment below or ask one of our fantastic trainers the next time you’re at Fitdog!
