There are few things more exciting than taking a new pup home from the animal hospital. There are so many adventures and memories waiting to be hand. However, first, you need to train your new best friend while it is young.
You have likely hear the saying, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” This is because it is so much easier to teach young dogs than old dogs. However, how do you even get started training a dog. If this is you, then this is the right video for you.
Start by taking your pup outside on a leash. Then give the pup a treat every time it fixes its eyes on you. You want to teach the dog to focus on you rather than all the distractions around it. To encourage this behavior, you can create a positive feedback loot by giving it a treat for paying attention. You will also want to accompany this with a reinforcement word of praise. In the future, you will be able to use this reinforcement word to reinforce future ideal activities. With practice, you should notice that your dog is learning to pay more and more attention to you. From here, you can start teaching it other tricks.
