Tip of the Month

11/28/2006 Timing is Everything

When working on dog training with your pooch, timing is extremely important. This means that every time you ask your dog to do something, you only have an instant to let the dog know he has done the right or the wrong thing. If you miss this window of opportunity, it may be too late for your dog to connect his actions to your reward or punishment. If your dog succeeds during training, immediately reward him by giving him something he likes, like a treat or a belly rub. Also, if your dog does the wrong thing, let him know by either ignoring him or refusing to give him the treat he is yearning for. Professionals refer to this as “negative punishment.”

Providing instant feedback to your dog about his performance during exercises will establish clear lines of communication. This will result in effective and happy animal training lessons.
