Top Tips on Creating… PIZAZZ!
We often get asked questions like; How do I create a dog who is more motivated? How do I create a dog who reacts to cues quicker and does them with PIZAZZ?
Here’s what we think:
⭐️Create easy wins
By this we mean super easy wins. Simple games such as restraining your dog and throwing a piece of food across the floor and as its rolling, let your dog go!
⭐️Animate your reinforcement
Don’t feed your dog to their mouth. Ask for a behaviour or skill or play a quick game and bowl the food for your dog to chase.
Ask your dog for a behaviour, and then another, and then another….then mark and reward.
⭐️Play a quick game
Ask for a skill or behaviour, mark and then race your dog to a pot of food that you have placed on the side, then feed them.
Keep the energy up and the training session short
