Home Training

The most effective training you can give your dog is that training you do at home.


Home training should:Training

  • Be very short duration (no more than 5 minutes at a time)
  • Be at a consistently regular time. (eg. each morning or afternoon except Sunday)
  • Be done before feeding.
  • Be done in mornings where very small food rewards are used.
  • Be done with a hungry dog where food rewards are to be used.


    Remember foods rewards are very small, instantly swallowed and must be delivered immediately on demonstrated correct behaviour. the reward is intermittent, that is it is given only 3 or 4 times in 10 attempts at the behaviour.
