So many things in life seem to need to be done in short spurts and it’s kind of a drag. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t take the time to get it done, but I think you should do it like you take a walk and have an hour to yourself. This isn’t a race to get to the end.
To be honest, I think you should train your dog in the yard, in the back yard and in the yard while you are at work. This way, when you are not working, your dog is constantly being reminded of the importance of being a good dog.
This is a great strategy if you are already doing certain things that require a certain amount of time and energy to accomplish. Say you are doing something that takes a lot of time to do, like painting your house. You could instead take a few minutes out at the end of the day to do some extra yard work or cleaning up your dog’s mess. It might be a bit less work, but it’s that extra time that enables you to be more productive in the long run.
I know this is a lot to ask, but I was wondering if there is a way to speed up the process of teaching your dog about treats so that they don’t need to use the timer or whatever. I have a friend who teaches her dog the rules of sit down and stay at heel, but she has it down to a science.
I know this might be a bit of a “novelty,” but I’ve been thinking of taking some dogs, a few other types of dogs, and a few other breeds of dog.
It would be quite a task to teach this sort of thing to every dog, but it could be helpful as a general canine training tool. One of the most effective methods of teaching that I’ve seen is the dog training lead. An old-school technique in which the dog’s leash is tethered to a looped piece of string attached to your belt. The string is pulled out and a treat is placed in the dog’s mouth.
I’ve been thinking about trying “extra long dog training lead,” but I’m not quite sure what that is.
Its a long piece of string, maybe about a yard long.
Good luck with that. No matter how many times you try, you will never get it to work.
Ive been using this long dog training lead for a couple months now, and I’m just not finding it effective. I’ve been doing it with small dogs and they are pretty much useless. There are lots of tricks that can be used for dogs that are in between a small dog and a large dog, but they are not very effective for me.
