We believe that the more rewards we have, the better. We want to reiterate the importance of play since it offers so many possibilities. Moreover, we start most of our training sessions with play.
We want to have a dog that both immerses itself in play and plays with us in all environments. That’s why we always start incorporating play, with both puppies and adult dogs. Play is, quite simply, an unbeatable form of reward that most dogs love (or learn to love) and it’s an effective and structured way for the dog to burn off its energy. Moreover, it can set the right pace and energy level for the exercises we are teaching and it strengthens our relationship with the dog.
Here you’ll find all our blog posts about play and how we use it to teach our dogs basic skills.
