The Best Rewards
Rewards can come in many forms, whether it be verbal, tactile or a physical treat. When training a new dog, it is recommended that you use low calorie training treats to reward them and increase the dog’s motivation and prevent weight gain. However, using verbal cues such as “Well Done” and showing them affection through stroking can be just as effective.
Ensure at least one type of reward is given every time a correct behaviour is expressed. This way, the dog will understand what behaviours are desired and which ones are not.
