Below is a list of some of our favorite training tips, and pet resources to help your pet and you to get off on the right foot!
Always train before play, and before feeding. Dogs are more excited to work for their food when they're hungry and full of energy!
Use treats that make your dog excited! Go for healthy options with low fat, and ingredients you can pronounce when possible, too much fat and junk food can make a dog sick! Some of our favorites are hot dogs, cheese sticks, chicken breast, Bil-Jac brand frozen dog food, Ziwi Peak dog food. Try a few with your dog and see which one motivates them the most! (When all else fails there's usually some human food that will get them going!)
Teach your dog tricks! Tricks engage the dog's mind, and challenge them to think while having fun. The more a dog learns the quicker they learn other new skills as well.
You must ALWAYS teach your dog the correct behavior you want before you can stop a behavior you do not want.
Walks and runs only build a dog's endurance. To tire a dog out you must engage their brain, and their nose as well as their muscles!
