Getting Started Week Seven - Give Your Dog a Paycheck!

The reason to train with food is to set up your puppy for success and make both learning for Puppy and teaching for you much easier.  Pair the treat with a clicker for faster learning!

  • Old school training relied on the dog learning to stop an unpleasant experience and figure out what
    didn't result in pain, e.g. when you heel or sit, I stop jerking on your collar and yelling at you.
    These methods break down the bond you are building with your pup.

  • New school thinking is showing the puppy exactly what a word means by using food to lure the
    puppy into the desired position and then giving the food as a reward. This makes learning more fun
    and develops a better relationship between the puppy and the puppy parent.
