Tips to remember…

  1. Keep sessions short and sweet.
  2. Always end the training on a positive note.
  3. It is best to train when your puppy is hungry, not stuffed after a meal but not famished either.
  4. Release often with enthusiasm and short games.
  5. Use a variety of tiny pieces of delicious smelly treats.
  6. Remember to think about your feedback and your timing.
  7. Have realistic goals and expectations. Start small and work up to more challenging exercises.
  8. Make training a part of everyday routine, not a chore.
  9. You must be present and alert if you expect your pup to be.
  10. Keep your tone of voice in mind.
