We use only the most effective methods for dog training.
What is reward-based training?
By giving the puppy a treat when it does something well, reward-based training helps foster desired behavior. Depending on the puppy’s preferences, a reward may consist of anything from a delectable treat and vocal praise to fuss and cuddling.
A dog’s “unwanted” actions are disregarded if they occur. They are less likely to do it again if the dog is not rewarded for bad behavior with attention or treats. This is the same concept as the widely successful use of positive reinforcement.
When it comes to training, why do we advocate using incentives?
Reward-based training can be an effective method for getting your dog to behave as you want. The ability to calm down and wait for people to finish what they’re doing is one such skill. Some of the many benefits of using this method to train your dog are:
- According to studies, dogs can learn effectively when rewarded for their efforts.
- Reward-based training is entertaining for both the dog and the owner, and it fosters a more harmonious relationship.
- Dogs with fewer behavioral issues are owned by people who train their dogs.
- Confidence and independence in canines can be boosted through reward-based training.
Positive Reward Training Techniques
- Rewarding with food
Your dog should enjoy whatever you pick, which must be safe for them. Remember to limit your dog’s regular food intake if you plan to use food as a training tool.
- Rewarding with toys
Games with toys, such as retrieve or tug, can be used as a reward system for obedient dogs who enjoy playing. If you want to get the most out of your training sessions with your dog, you should teach him how to release toys using rewards.
- Rewarding with attention
The value of our attention is often underappreciated. Dogs generally enjoy our company and feel better after we’ve interacted with them in any way, be it visually, physically, or verbally. In other words, how they act is constantly influenced by how much we focus on them. Focus on rewarding your dog for the behaviors you want to see more of and less for those you don’t.
Teaching your dog good manners through reinforcement
Giving your dog a treat shows appreciation for good behavior. Use only desirable rewards when training your dog. If your dog is acting quietly, you may want to praise them with a soft fuss, pat, or just some calm words. An exciting game is an excellent incentive if they act actively, such as racing over to you when you call.
Incentives that vary with time and circumstance
At times, your dog may require a special or supplemental treat. What your dog may have found simple in the tranquility of your home may prove challenging in the hustle and bustle of the outside world. When they got outside, they realized that the things that used to excite them at home no longer did.
If your dog has trouble paying attention to you in a particular area, you may need to use a more enticing reward to get his attention. Select something that your dog will like even more, such as a boiled chicken piece, a favorite game, or a favorite toy. We use all of these treats as incentives for the dogs we train.
We are experts in Positive Reward Based Training Methods!
Our local puppy trainers implement a classical conditioning technique that emphasizes the rewards for obeying directions. A dog’s natural disposition is one of eagerness. They are more likely to comply with your requests once they realize that doing so will earn them praise or a snack. Train your puppy with care, and you’ll have a loyal life companion. No matter what kind of behavior we encounter, our innovative approach will guarantee success for our program.
