A big part of positive training is setting your dog (and you) up for success. You want to make it easy for him to make the correct choice.

  • Start off any new skill in a quiet place free from distractions (for you and the dog – turn off your mobile!).
  • Don’t instigate a training session when you or your dog are stressed or grumpy.
  • Have everything you need ready at the start of training.
  • Know what you want to get out of the session.
  • Cut out any talking except for what’s required for training.
  • Be patient and clear with your dog.
  • Don’t make sessions too long – 5-10 mins is fine.
  • If your dog is not displaying the behaviour you intended, or is struggling in any way, go back a step or two
  • Ensure your dog has access to fresh drinking water – dogs get thirsty when they’re learning
