The Other Ways To Reward And Keep Your Dog Motivated Other Than Food

Press release from: Jonathan Cheong

Keeping the attention of a dog while training is not always easy. Dogs can be easily distracted, and it is important to not allow the training sessions to be sabotaged by boredom. Making training fun for the dog and the human alike is vital to creating a happy, well adjusted and well trained dog.



Providing random positive stimuli during the day is a great way to keep the interest of the dog. Doing things the dog enjoys, like walking in the park, riding in the car, and playing with other dogs, is a great way to keep the dog’s attention and reward him for small successes.



For instance, in order to reward the dog for coming, for instance, ask the dog to come, without giving any clues about a walk, a car ride, or other treats. After the dog has come to you and obediently sat down, attach the leash and start the reward. This can be either the aforementioned walk in the park, ride in the car, or anything else the dog likes to do.



Providing some kind of reward, whether a treat, a special outing, or just a scratch behind the ears, every time the dog does something it is wanted to do, is a great way to keep the dog motivated. If the dog knows something great is going to happen every time he obeys commands, he will be motivated to follow commands every time.



Distraction training

When training any dog, it is important to not let distractions disrupt the training. The dog must be taught to ignore distractions, such as other people, other dogs, other animals and loud noises, and focus on what is being taught These types of distractions can even be used as rewards when training the dog to come when called.



For instance, if a dog enjoys playing with other dogs, whether in a local dog park or with the neighbor’s dogs, let him play freely with those other dogs. Then go into the park or yard and call the dog. When the comes to you, provide lots of praise, treats and other rewards, then immediately allow the dog to go back to playing with his friends.



Repeat this several times and praise the dog each time he comes. The dog will quickly learn that coming means good things (treats and praise) and not bad ones (being taken away from the park).
