All You Need to Know About Dog Training
Reward training (which is sometimes also called lure training) is a very effective training technique for teaching dogs a number of desired behaviors. And, in addition to being highly effective, reward training is an easy, fun method to use.
This particular training technique provides much quicker, more dependable results than methods that rely heavily on scolding, corrections, or punishment, and it does it in a way that's much more positive for both you and your dog.
Because reward training is so effective, it's currently one of the most popular dog training techniques. At its heart, reward training works because you reward your dog with a treat or tidbit of food whenever he does what you ask.
Most owners accompany the food reward with verbal praise. The food and praise are positive reinforcement which helps your dog learn to associate the action he performed with good things (food and praise) and encourages him to repeat that behavior again.
In addition to being effective, reward training provides a training atmosphere much more positive than some other training techniques. Because of the fee-based method, you reward your dog every time he did as you asked. Scolding, striking, punishing, or correcting your dog not to follow your command is never used in training rewards.
