Training Your Dog Does Not Have to be Boring!

by Robin MacFarlane

Tired of Plain Vanilla dog training? Add some fun!

"Practicing" at something takes discipline. It is a matter of making time, doing the work, and implementing changes as needed so that performance can be improved.

Because of the discipline involved, the idea of practicing often takes on the characteristic of being "dull." And dull isn't motivating.

Dull, rote, practicing of obedience training isn't motivating for your dog either. We all want a well-behaved dog, but many of us aren't too excited about the work that needs to be done to achieve the goal of owning a companion who listens when we need them to.

So how about we spice up our practice routine with some play training?

Take a look at this to see what I mean.

Adding in some obedience commands or tricks to your games of fetch, Frisbee, or tug is one way to improve your dog's training and reliability.

Plus, it is WAY more fun for both of you!
