Taming Tip from Taming the Wild Side Dog Training

Contributed by Terri Elkins, Owner / Trainer - Taming the Wild Side Dog Training

Note from CP Blogger: We would like to thank Terri Elkins for allowing us to post her weekly taming tips on our blog. Her training facility is located in Fort Worth, Texas.

Each week we'll share a Taming Tip for you, your family and friends to do with your dog(s)! These tips will help teach your dog real world manners in a fun way. Leave us a comment and tell us how it went!

Taming Tip #8:

In honor of our Scent Class, this week's Taming Tip is all about the NOSE! This will be a blast for your dog! Take your dog's favorite treats and hide them throughout your backyard. While you are hiding the treats be sure to leave your dog inside the house. When you open the door to let him out, tell him to "Go find it!". Then watch your dog play this natural hunting game! In the beginning, if your dog is having trouble, walk him over to one of the treats, point to it and tell him to "Go find it"! Make the game easy at first and then challenge your dog by making it harder! You can also play this game inside the house, and if you have more than one dog, let them play one at a time.
