Training your pup is incredibly important, especially in obedience skills. For most new Dads and Moms, however, trying to train your pup can come across as an especially daunting experience. Where do you even start with? How do you make sure you reinforce the right behaviour?
Luckily, basic obedience training can be easier than you think. With the help of food, reinforcing said behaviour can be even easier, as this Dad has discovered! All he has to do is to command his Labrador Retriever, Pate, to sit first. Upon a successful execution of the command, then Pate gets his meal!
This sort of simple, everyday obedience training can be incredibly easy to integrate into your daily lifestyle. It is also a change that is well worth it, since it means your pup’s training gets reinforced constantly in little ways. It also helps that just about every pup out there is food motivated, so mealtime obedience training reinforcement is really easy to execute!
