What Do You love about training Your Dog?

What do you love about training your dog?

I hope I can get as numerous people as possible to answer the above question.

Tiedät miksi? It will inspire others to get thrilled about spending time with their dogs.

For me, that’s what canine training is about – spending time with my canine and learning to communicate with one another.

It’s practically spiritual.

Of course, I also want a polite, well-behaved canine who listens. and that only comes with a lot of hard work and patience (and luck!).

I asked some of my readers “What do you love about canine training?” or “What do you love about training your dog?”

Here’s what they had to say, in their own words:

Jen deHaan:

“I love how it builds upon and solidifies the bond we share. Both dogs learn how to view my body, especially my face, for clues about what I might want them to do so the connection we share is strengthened each time we train.

“And the dogs always know that ‘training’ is going to be fun, and terrific things are about to happen! Anything that involves such fun, joy, and relationship building is an activity to love and do as typically as possible.”

Alyx Hatton:

“I love the quality one on one time I get with her.”

Jen Gabbard:

“I love being able to keep training sessions fun by using toys as rewards. because Laika knows that providing good behaviors leads to much more playtime she’s much simpler to train; and she’s become my well-behaved best pal in the process.”

Colby Morita:

“As a guide canine puppy raiser, top on my list is viewing a puppy I trained from 7 weeks to 18 months of age guide his blind partner across a busy street, through a crowd of people, or just a easy walk to school with her children.

“Training a puppy to help another individual regain her independence is the top reason why I love training dogs and puppies! It’s life changing not just for a blind person receiving a guide dog, but for the puppy raiser as well.”

Andrew James:

“The main reason I love canine training is that I’m able to make a positive difference in the lives of dogs who need me.

“Also, I get the benefit of working with dogs and puppies each day and that enables me to connect with all dogs on a deeper level than ever before.”

Elaine Bryant:

“For me, training is not just about having a well-behaved dog, but it’s also about creating a strong bond with your dog. You’re a team and you support one another.

“When training a new command, there’s nothing much more gratifying than seeing that look in your dog’s eyes as she connects the dots for the first time and she ‘gets it.’ You celebrate her accomplishment together because you’re a team.”

Jennifer Jenkins:

“I like the fact that my relationship with my dogs are strengthened and I get a lesson in patience. Also, it is so much fun!”

Barbara Rivers:

“Training my dogs has several benefits I love:

1. It turns them into polite K9s I can take along on social outings.
2. It strengthens the bond between us.
3. It keeps them mentally fit by asking them to carry out a certain behavior.
4. My arms very much appreciate not being pulled all over the place when we opt for walks!”
