The Tips Begin
· ‘Within our dog there beats a Lassie’s heart.’ P227
· ‘Having fun with your dog is so important, but remember, positive doesn’t mean permissive.’ P209
Teaching your dog tricks adds to your bond, and it is so easy to find the time to train. Every time you boil your kettle for your coffee break spend time with your dog. From your dog’s daily ration you can throw one piece of their kibble away from you, and when they look back at you as if to say that was easy - say ‘yes’. Now lure your dog round you with food in your hand and throw one piece away from you. Watch them bounce back to you for more fun. Just in a few minutes you have taught your dog to come back to you.
