Mentoring. Dogs need their owners to teach them right and wrong. Essentially, owners are a dog’s guide. Offering a treat as a reward is effective when mentoring or guiding your dog.
Training. When you decide to train your dog, you may want to implement some rewards. Many commands with dog training can’t be taught in just one day. Patience is needed and you must break the training into baby steps for your dog. An idea is to reward your dog either each time they get a command right or at the end of a successful training session.
Do You Have a Watch Dog? Most dogs naturally protect their human family. If your dog is the type to bark when he or she hears or “thinks” they hear someone outside, make sure to provide verbal praise.
“…make sure to provide verbal praise.”
Let Your Dog Know You’re In Charge. When you are the main source of the treats and you dispense the treats on your own terms, it lets your dog know you’re in charge. When you dog looks to you with such admiration and needing approval or praise, you know they think the world of you.
