Training Tips - Teaching Your Dog To Fetch

In most cases, the first fetch task is often made by accident. When you throw a stick or toy, he might bring it back to you by accident. However, you can tell him that this is what you want by rewarding him. 

In times when the dog is distracted, get his attention first before throwing the toy. Try waving it around his nose or face. Once he starts chasing after it, be sure to praise him to let him know that this is what you want him to do. 

After he has gone to retrieve the toy, try calling him back to you. At first, you will find that he drops the toy before coming back to you. You can praise him but save the treats for the time when he brings back the toy to you. 

Your pet will benefit from regular wellness checks at your Plano, TX animal hospital. More details at this website Coit Hedgcoxe Animal Hospital.
