This week on the blog, we’re sharing a few easy-to-teach tricks for you and your pup to learn together. Dog training can be a fun way to keep your dog busy (and tired!) and take your mind off the strange things going on in the world.
We’re all about the positive rewards at The Village Pets, so we suggest rewarding positive behavior rather than punishing/shaming the behaviors you don’t want to see. Treats are great but excited verbal praise is always a good reward too! We recognize that all pups and families are different, so choose the method that fits your unique needs. Remember - dog training requires PATIENCE and it will be perfectly normal for these to take hours, days, or even weeks to perfect.
These are common commands but you can customize them however you’d like. Just be consistent. If you want your dog to learn “shake,” make sure to use that same word every single time. Simple, straightforward, and consistent commands work best.
If you have dog training tips to share, please add them to the comments below. Even better - if your pup can do fancy tricks, please send us videos! We would love to feature them on our social media pages and give them alllll the praise.
To help your relationship with your pet to thrive, we love offering tips & tricks to help owners get the most out of our services.
