We get it -  you probably have some concerns about your pets BEHAVIOUR!

What if they are to boisterous? or anxious? They might bark! or jump! or make a scene!

Let us help with some of these handy resources and show how we can set your pet up for success.

Video 1 - Rewards

Often we hear "how did you do that? My dog never behaves like that for me!" - the answer? Simple! It's all in the rewards! 

We make sure to spend one-on-one time with your dog learning exactly which rewards make them tick. And remember, not all rewards are food! 

Read more below. 

My dog isn’t motivated by food”  ⁣

 

It’s a comment we hear often - at expos, in emails and even when we arrive for a meet-and-greet.⁣ ⁣

BUT 

  • Not all rewards are treats, and 

  • Not all rewards are equal in your dogs eyes

 

So to begin with, let’s look at what exactly a reward is. ⁣ ⁣

 

A reward is something - food, attention, praise, or toys (to name just a few) - that reinforces a behaviour. ⁣ ⁣

 

Your dog will decide which rewards are of high or low value to them - just like a person may value one thing over another. ⁣ ⁣

 

For example, Person A might be motivated by money, Person B by praise and Person C by food.

 

And just like people, each dog will be different. ⁣ ⁣

 

So as an owner, or trainer, you need to establish what type of reward works best for your dog.⁣ ⁣

     👉🏼 If it’s food, what type of food? ⁣

     👉🏼 If it’s toys, are they squeaky? Chewy? Balls? Plush teddys? ⁣

     👉🏼 If it’s attention, do they like verbal praise or physical affection? Maybe both? ⁣

 

⁣So in this video we show HOW to determine which rewards work best for your dog.

 

Have some fun and experiment!! ⁣ ⁣
