Training Collar Guide: Pick the training collar that best suits your pet

Dog training tip: connecting with your dog.

Using food is a great introduction for a dog to learn and shaping behavior. However, it is easy to get caught in the trap of bribing a dog with food to get them to listen to you. Connecting with a dog with an enthusiastic attitude while using a variety of rewards will allow you to teach them with or without food … fun for the dog comes from interaction with their parents … and not only what is in their pocket. I personally prefer to start teaching a new behavior with food, and then quickly change the reward in a toy or a game or some sort. Once a dog and their human learning to communicate with each other, amazing things are guaranteed to happen. What is your dog’s favorite game?? Video Rating: 4/5

  • @ Tab289 Why did you choose a German shepherd and which breed is best for training? Labrador or German Shepard?

  • Love ur vids

  • Thanks for the suggestion. I will look into it!

  • I cool video I would like to see is how you get your dog to jump over you as you squat down.

  • I agree. It is a much more soothing reward than a game of tug, which is usually more exciting for most dogs.

  • Excellent vid. where dogs are conditioned to enjoy working for you by the rewards that you are using. I use a combination of rewards and use food in many different ways. Work for their food, my dogs work, they do not need it, but I want to use it because it helps them with great feel-good factors throughout the day. Food is also an imp tool to suppress adrenaline release and soothe a dog. Food is a valuable tool to assist in maintaining emotional stability in your dog.

  • You hit it on the head. You have to make good throws. I just started with our 6 month old red heeler. We do it for a few weeks and the first thing I learned is that I must constantly make good throws. If the trap bar will catch them.

  • I must say that this great good work

  • I wonder, what do I need the weight of the Frisbee to my dog? Or is it not evil? I have a Finnish Lapphund, and he’s a little cautious and has never chased or caught a frisbee for. Anyone have an idea? 🙂 I love your vid btw, soo good!

  • I love your videos, they get me super siked! Our Zoey is a girl playing hard when it comes to disks. Teaching her to chase and catch was not a problem, but I play disc golf and have her learn when NOT to pursue them, LOL. She was just a year old now so going to start working more on the jump tricks. It’s amazing how quickly they learn. I just got my first video in a few quick steps we call turn & burn. I try to use it in an attempt to wear down. Look for more of Zoey soon.

  • That makes me more and more excited, because I see the potential of my Kallie ACD! We are working on beginner stuff now.

  • Excellent!

  • That is sick! I wish I had the patience to train my heeler these amazing tricks! 4:24 is sweet!

  • That is sick! I wish I had the patience to train my heeler these amazing tricks!

  • I just got a Blue Heeler, I want him to learn how some of the tricks you do, there is no reading materials or suggestions you could give me? You need a training video.

  • I have nothing but respect for you and your ACDs.

  • I would like some links for the discs have!
