Guideline #2 – Learn How To Best Praise And Motivate Your Dog
Some dogs respond to your happy verbal praise with hugs and kisses. Others need a treat to motivate them. Some require both hugs, kisses and the doggie treats. However, your dog can’t do what you want until you train her and guide her in the right direction. Using rewards and praise at any sign of progress will speed the process.
Never ignore your dog when they are behaving well. You are conditioning your pet to learn a behavior when you repeatedly expose it to the behavior you want it to learn while simultaneously rewarding it. The chances that your dog will do what you want it to will increase as you reward its behavior for the action.
