Great dog training starts with great rewards. It’s not just about finding rewards that the dog loves, but also about developing many different types of reward. This gives us the opportunity to choose the most suitable reward for each behavior.
Deficiencies in reward development are one of the most common problems we see when we teach. By limiting yourself to only a few of reward types, it becomes difficult to get the most out of your training.
This class is suitable for anyone who wants to level up their dog training. We cover the basics of reward development and work with developing different types of play and food rewards. Whether you are doing dog sports or just want to be able to reward your dog better in everyday life, this is a course that can help you make dog training more successful and more fun.
The course is not only for dogs that lack drive, but also for dogs that may be very motivated by a certain type of reward and therefore are a challenge to engage in other reward types, or dogs that are too fixated on the reward and are not able to work relaxed and freely. We also cover self-control around rewards, the reward system, different reward marker words and distraction training.
