Alec’s Training Tip of the Month
Work out your dog’s brain! Try some mind bender games with your dog. The easiest one you can do right now, is to hide a treat under one of four overturned cups on the floor. Don't let your dog see you do it, just surprise him with it. When he gets engaged in the game, praise him and encourage him with your voice. When he finds the treat, praise him heavily! This game can increase to hiding a treat somewhere in the house, and teaching your dog to "seek.” Also, look to your local pet store for more specially designed brain toys- our favorite is the Buster Cube!
