Terrific Tip Tuesday

This weeks TTT can be applied to everyone and anyone, regardless of age of handler, dog, breed ect.

BE CONSISTENT!!!!

I swear, these two words i repeat hundreds times to my clients but it is one of the most important tips i can EVER give. If you do not maintain consistency when training, how is your dog going to know what is right, what is wrong, and what to do?

As humans we can understand that events, items, relationships ect are related or interconnect to each other. We can reason, plan ahead and think. Dogs understand the here and now, they understand what is rewarded and what is corrected, and they understand what you have taught them. Sit means sit, “come over here and stop that” may also mean sit to a human, but it doesn’t mean anything to your dog! Keep it black and white and consistent, your dog will thank you for it!
