In this episode of the Sexier than a Squirrel podcast, join Tom and Lauren as they take a deep dive into a subject that is not only hugely important for your training success, but also vital in keeping your relationship with your dog topped up and strong!
Today we’re talking about how to end your training sessions – whether you’re playing training games, heading out for a walk or even switching your dog between activities throughout the day.
The end of any session, no matter what you are working on, can actually be really punishing for your dog – and for you – if not done in the right way.
So how can we help shape our dog’s brains see that the end of a session, game, walk or activity is not a punishing experience?
It’s easy! We show them a good deal within every transition between activities, so they see the true value in moving from one to the other without feeling punished!
In this episode we’ll be diving into our top tips on how you can be more thoughtful in how you end your training sessions and how you can plan ahead and know where you’re going before your dog even comes into the session so that you can set up for ultimate training success!
