2.4 Building daily habits of engagement

By January 12, 2021No Comments
Since we understand the wants of dogs (food, freedom, play and affection), we use teachable moments in daily life to build a habit of engagement.
  • Feeding
  • Exiting doors
  • Going for walks
  • When a dog comes to you for attention
We can also engage dogs in scenarios that dogs typically act up as a way to prevent bad behaviors. They include:
  • Meal times
  • Visitors
We should aim for at least 8-10 interactions with our dogs daily where they offer us engagement (focus and attention).
