Positive Reinforcement Puppy Training

Positive reinforcement training involves rewarding your dog for the things they do right. The reward could be a toy, a game, or a treat – whatever your dog wants to work for. To some people that sounds like a bribe, not training, and they want their dog to obey just because they should. But positive reinforcement training is neither a bribe nor a gimmick. It’s based on the science of animal learning, and it’s incredibly effective.

The benefits of positive-reinforcement training include:

  • Builds a strong bond with your dog based on trust and respect
  • Avoids increasing anxiety or aggression
  • Uses fun, easy training methods for the entire family
  • Provides mental stimulation, preventing boredom and problem behaviors
  • Allows a dog to choose, without fear of repercussions
  • Builds a dog’s confidence
