When training a dog or puppy, random and intermittent treat rewards improve command learning faster than too many treats—or too few. Be your dog’s slot machine!
Puppy training starts the day you adopt. The first 18 weeks are the most important for early command training and socialization to other dogs and to people.
A positive interrupter redirects your dog’s attention from an unwanted or destructive behavior to an activity or command you’d rather he be doing.
Reward-based training is scientifically proven to more quickly train dogs to learn desirable behaviors. Treats are your dog’s paycheck, not a bribe!
The domestic puppy’s unique capacity for socialization to multiple species sets people up for a role that would otherwise be served by their parents.
