Lisa Bonker Demonstrates Toy Use for Advancing Handling

This is a great video that shows you how you can use a toy to advance you dog handling and train desired behaviors.

Watch how the toy, or if you use treats, is used to draw the dog into the proper movement and then rewarded.

Lisa also shows you how to fade out the toy with opposite arm rewards so the dog starts following your arm.

The best part of this type of work is that your dog is learning through play and they don’t even know.

It has been shown that dogs learn faster when they are in play mode and retain the information longer.

If you got some great ideas on how to use your dog’s toy to work on your handling moves, be sure to SHARE with your friends.
