Make sure you use treats carefully
When training and learning – a treat is the perfect little reward for learning new things. When your dog needs a little extra energy – if you’ve been out and about on a long walk etc.
A routine daily or weekly treat helps to build bonds of affection and trust.
Puzzle-feeders and toys
These create a sense of achievement, encourages problem-solving behaviours and keeps your dog occupied for a short period of time.
As part of your daily routine - dogs will come to understand your patterns and find treats a great way to feel reassured and secure.
Too much and it’s not a treat anymore!
Give one or two treats at a time - never handfuls!
Associate treats with good behaviour
Treat on your terms only
