Commercial Dog Training
As a dog training coach, I often have clients who are worried that they need to train their dogs daily for hours and hours. But that’s not the case! Now, don’t get me wrong – if you want to have a well-adjusted, well-behaved dog that looks up to you for direction and fun, you do need to find quality time to teach, play, and interact with him. I would say a minimum of 1-2 hours throughout your day to devote to your dog. But teaching him his obedience skills such as sit, down, stay? You can do that in minutes a day!
Welcome to ‘commercial’ dog training. Or ‘waiting for your water to boil’ dog training. You know those times of the day that you are “in between” tasks, waiting? Use that time to teach your dog the behavior cues you want him to know well and dog tricks to engage his mind and build your relationship.
How easy is that? Just toss those high-value meat treats into your pocket before you sit down to watch your favorite TV show, and when the commercial rolls, train your dog. Easy-peasy. You will be amazed at how fast your dog learns and how much fun you both have, and, most importantly, you’ve spent quality time with your dog. OK, Go!
