I wonder how do you find time to train your dog, if you're too busy... How do you improve your dog's behavior when lots of other things fill up a day?
It looks like we find just the right time for our dog - it's dinner time. Everybody is home, and everybody is hungry...
So, our corgi doesn't get her entire potion of food right away, like she used to. She gets just a tiny bit. We know that if she has her complete food, she will quickly finish it and will be begging for more. Instead, we start our meal and ignore her for a minute. First, she's wild and impatient, but eventually she gets calm and polite and ready to learn any trick for a few kibbles. She usually gets her last kibble when dinner is over. She responds great to commands during all this time and we love interacting with her between our own chitchats.
It's a lot of fun and she cannot be happier. When dinner is over, we take her for a walk. It's a win-win for everybody.
I heard some people train dogs during TV commercial breaks, or while brewing coffee, or downloading something on computer… So, how do you find time to train your corgi?
