Teach Your Dog to Enjoy Praise

Something we often forget in training is that your dog is the one who gets to decide what’s rewarding, not you! I know dogs who love apples as a training treat, but my dog would spit them out.  The same goes with petting and praise – some types are valuable to your dog, and some aren’t.  If you want to use praise effectively, you have to be sure your dog likes it and is willing to work for it!  Try these techniques!
