Taming the Wild Side Dog Training

Note from 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.

Taming Tip #18:

Practice one behavior that your dog already knows, but add distance to it. Such as, "coming when called", "sit", or "down". Reward your dog for performing the behavior and staying as you increase the distance, but remember to increase the distance slowly and do not always add distance but "Ping Pong" your distance. You "Ping Pong" distance by taking two steps away, four steps away and then only take one step away, then you might go five steps away, keep the number of steps random and do not always increase, make it easier for your dog by decreasing the distance, and keep the number of steps random. Remember to click and treat to help your dog succeed

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!
