Training Tip #9 – Focus on the positive

May 27, 2015 | Tips and Training

Focus on the positive

Focus on telling your dog what you want him to do, not what you don’t want him to do. Instead of yelling at him after he jumps up, preempt the jumping by asking him to “sit”, or to grab a toy. Instead of reprimanding your dog for pestering you while you’re cooking, teach him to go to his mat. Sweeten the deal by giving him a food-stuffed Kong to enjoy while he’s lying there waiting.
