Getting a reliable response from your dog

Before you ask your dog to do something make sure your dog knows what you are asking!


Often I see owners repeatedly asking their dog to do something and then giving up or getting frustrated when the dog doesn’t obey. When questioned, it turns out the dog doesn’t clearly understand the instructions given.


If this happens, go back to basics. Show your dog exactly what you want and when the dog is getting it right REWARD him!


Remember repetition is the key to helping this sink in. Don’t show your dog once and expect them to remember this 2 weeks later.


Be clear, be consistent, have realistic expectations and have fun!!
