Dog Tip of The Day, July 26

In 1994, Ian Dunbar, a veterinarian founded the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, or APDT (wow, that is not too long ago).  Dunbar advocated positive reinforcement, such as using treats for training dogs.  I believe in this also.  I might add, use a soft treat such as a cut up hot dog when using treats while walking. If you do use a solid hard treat, make sure you give the dog time to eat and enjoy it.  Don’t forget to take water, but don’t use the water as a treat.
