Once your recognize what motivates your dog you are able to use this as a reward for good behavior. Rewarding your dog will cause your dog to enjoy the experience and be willing to work harder.
If your dog is one who is motivated by food remember to vary the foods. Do not always give your dog the same reward. You may also not want to always give a reward for each time. This will make getting one more pleasurable to the dog when it gets one. And it goes without saying, don’t give your dog a reward if it does not listen.
A third key to training your dog is practice. Nothing reinforces behavior like practice. Your dog will love to practice knowing that there is a possible reward, as discussed above, waiting for him or her.
