Helping your dog learn new skills

Your dog is a big part of your life and you want to be able to offer her some time to really enjoy herself in your care. However, you know that she needs to have some training in order to make this happen. How can you help your dog learn some new skills?

Your pet will be more motivated to learn something if she can see a benefit in doing so. This means that your little fur ball will want to practice if she thinks it’s fun or knows she will be getting rewarded with praise or a treat at the end of the activity. It also helps your pet stay engaged if you are able to enjoy what you are doing as well. He will see that you are happy and feed off your energy a bit to find the interaction more enjoyable.  Your local veterinary clinic Roanoke, VA can offer additional suggestions.
