Ensure your dog learns correctly is key to a sucessful relationship with your dog.

  • Dogs learn through a variety of mediums, but one of the best ways for complex learning is to put the dog in a pleasant environment; provide it with the motivation, and then let it work it out for itself.
  • Training for an action that has more than one component needs to be ‘chained’, i.e. teach your dog one small segment and then ‘chain’ it with another.
  • With positive reinforcement, your dog will be incentivised and the tasks themselves will become self-motivating.
  • Just like humans, a dog can easily become bored, so training in manageable quadrants and controlling the amount of reward will raise the incentive and improve the performance.
