Here's one of the EASIEST things you can do to get better results with your dog's training.
This is a really really TINY TIP but it is SO powerful.
It's SO helpful in your training and SO often overlooked. It's the power of HIGH-VALUE REWARDS. The real issue is that our perception of high value as the human is way WAY WaY different than that of our dogs. You'll always hear us say... HOT DOG or CHEESE, Please! And there's a reason for that!
We know dogs love those special snacks, like Cheerios or carrots-but let me tell you this from a zillion dogs and owners and treat testings- over a lot of years (I'm way younger than I look I hope!?) I can promise you, your dog will LOVE and RESPOND to you better when you use high value. This is especially critical when you are doing Find Focus First™....
Give it a try!- take an assortment of your dog's favorite snacks and see how powerful high value is. And how much more responsive they are. Make your dogs and YOUR experience as easy and powerful as possible.
and P.S. and by the way....... If you microwave the hotdogs a little it will dry them out a bit and make them "nicer" to handle. LOWER quality hotdogs (don't judge- and don't ever google how your dog food is made) work better for training than greasier Name Brands too!
