Taming Tip from Taming the Wild Side Dog Training

Contributed by Terri Elkins, Owner / Trainer -

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.

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 #18:

You can do this activity indoors or outdoors. Play a game with your dog that he loves, such as tug, fetch, chase, ball, etc. Play with your dog for 5-15 minutes to get your dog very excited and revved up, then suddenly take a "Manners Break" and ask your dog to sit, down, or go to a mat to help him settle down. Once your dog has settled down play the game again! After you quit playing the game with your dog if they sit, down or run to their mat without being told give your dog extra rewards!
