Using Rewards

Dog training is not always an easy task to achieve, especially if you do not have the knowledge into performing this kind of instruction. The first thing that you should be aware of is that your pet dog needs to be rewarded while you perform the training. Once you use the reward in the right way, then training will become a lot easier to perform task.

If you see this aspect from outside without being actually involved in the procedure, you might think that one can not fail with rewarding their pet dog. But you must know that not all dog owners know how to do this properly. As a result they see this as a useless initiative and pretty soon they give up rewarding their pet dog during the specific training. When you quit rewarding the dog, then the dog training procedure will become again a hard to achieve and tiring task.

Take into account the following tips in order to make rewarding a task that allows you to attain your target: reaching to successful dog training:

*It is very important for your dog to understand why he is rewarded. As such you should always give the treat for good behavior RIGHT after behaving very well. In this way, your pet dog will associate the last action with the treat and he will perform the same next time when needed only to get his reward. Until you do the dog training, your pet dog has no idea what is there good or wrong from everything he is doing. In case you give the treat after a bad behavior you will confuse him the most.

*The treat should be given with the first dog training day and always following a command. Once your pet dog will understand what is required of him, you can try continuing the training without giving him a treat.

*A good idea would be to replace the food treat after a while with something else that you know your dog likes the most, such as petting.

*Never reward the dog unless he has done something well in accordance to your command. As obvious as this might sound, there are however some dog owners who are tempted to offer the reward even if the dog hasn't done something related to a certain command.
