Today we’ll talk about dog training treats. It’s a definitely good way to treat your dog in order to show how much you love him, how glad you are to own him, how to spoil your dog, and how to reward him for showing good behavior in their training.
Now let’s see some reasons for using dog training treats. Dogs can sense the aroma of a treat from a distance, and if you use something that your dog likes, he will be impatient to get it and do what you ask him to do just to get it sooner. However, when your furry friend finishes his deed, he might get too excited to jump or turn around you in the hope that he will get the treat. If things like this are happening, disapprove your dog’s attitude and wait until he stops and waits for his treat.
Dog training treats must be used between meals. You might wonder why? After a good meal, any treat won’t work that well because your dog is fool and doesn’t feel that he needs something more. For receiving yours dog total attention with a treat, first expose it to his nose. By attracting your dog with his smell, you got most of his attention. Than what you have to do is to show him the treat and after than he should hear it, if it can be heard.
Another thing to be taken into consideration when choosing dog training treats are the ingredients of the treat. It’s important that a treat is made exactly of the things that your dog likes the most. Remember that dogs are not humans and they have different tastes than yours. You need to understand your dog better, so that you know what he likes.
Every exercise has a different value. So the treats he receives for it must have a different value too. That’s why you should have different types of treats in different quantities. Also, depending on the exercises you are doing, you have to know that sometimes your dog can take several seconds to eat, but in other situations, he will have to swallow fast and continue with the exercise.
Never use dog training treats in your exercises before trying them first. When a dog sees something for the first time, he must convince himself of what it is. It would be a mistake to stop in the middle of an exercise that should continue fast just because your dog doesn’t know the treat because he never saw it before. It will pull you back with your training.
Keep in mind that you will use treats to show affection to your dog. Make sure treats are meant for a purpose. You do not want to offer treats just like that, without a reason. Most importantly, do not make it a habit to reward your furry friend for everything. Make a note of all the reasons you offer them treats. Always put discipline and exercise before.
