Positive training is all the rage, and it should be! Who wants their dog to listen to them out of fear or anything related to that? Not me. I would much rather my dogs respect me than fear me. If your a dog owner, you know all about training sessions, and keeping things positive, but what about ensuring your dog has success during training?
Setting Your Dog Up For Success:
Dogs are sensitive animals. They have feelings, they have huge hearts, and they love their people.When your in a training session with your 4 legged friend, it is important to keep their feelings in mind. By setting your dog up for success, you are preventing failure, which in turn will not only lead to a better training session, but you will accomplish a lot more than you would by being frustrated, and having a stressed out pup!
Quick Tip: When training, set realistic goals for you and your dog. Create short and sweet sessions rather than long frustrating ones. And whatever you do, do not try to do any complicated trick training until you have the basics down. If you set unrealistic goals for your dog, it will only result in failure, which won't work for anyone, and will make any future training with your pup very difficult. Your dog will quickly learn that training sessions are no fun and he will not be very willing to work with you if he keeps failing at something you set up for him.
