Teaching Your Dog Tricks

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Q: Hi So one of my dogs is pretty hard to train (she is well trained but I like to keep up to date with training and teach her different tricks) anyway she gets bored REALLY easily If she gets bored she walks away Any tips on how to get her to do the trick I want without her getting bored

A: Honestly, this isn’t a question I can answer. I don’t know what you’re trying to teach your dog or why she gets bored. Usually dogs are very attentive when they are receiving attention from their owners. The most obvious answers I’m sure you are already using – keeping treats available as rewards, using verbal praise and petting, etc. There are numerous online videos available for free that may help you. You can also do research about your particular problem by just using your search engine. Your local library or bookstore should also have books available to teach you how to do a better job of training your pet.
