You’ve asked our dog training experts what you can do to make sure you have a well trained dog, and we’ve got your dog training tips below!
If you exercise your dog and tire him out, you will have a lot easier of a time training your dog. Without too much pent up energy, your dog is less likely to listen to your commands and will likely spend more time running around and trying to play than sitting still. Consider taking your dog to a dog park, teaching them to walk on a treadmill, or dropping them off at Happy Hound.
Playtime is a great opportunity to bond with your dog. Get down on all fours and wrestle, play tug o’ war, fetch, play in a creek… anything where you’re giving your dog your undivided attention so you can create a lasting bond. When you spend quality time with your dog, without being interrupted or giving her half your attention, your dog will be much more eager to please you. That will come in handy during training. If your dog wants to make you happy, she’ll be more likely to follow your commands. Also, play time can help her burn off her excess energy — and a tired dog is a trainable dog!
