|We do food treats more as a way of initial focus rather than the do this thing. People laugh at me when I tell them that I spit treats. Yes, I do! I will never give a food treat from my hand - it's almost always from my mouth as I want the younger dogs to focus on my eyes.
However, as they grow and learn, they know they get their food from us, so then "work" becomes their treat Does that make sense? Our dogs will do anything for us just to be able to "work" - that is their pleasure, but only because they know their basic needs are met from us.
Here's a couple vids of us having so much fun with our dogs Scout is our girlie, Cap is my big boy. We do love our dogs !!
|Thank you for reading and taking the time to write. Interesting videos. Agility is certainly a good way to teach a dog both confidence in its own abilities and the people around them.
An unemployed dog is certainly a lot more difficult to manage, so it always a good idea to give teach them tasks or jobs. I am working on having my own 2 chase bunnies and squirrels from the yard and gardens, so I can have my own produce. And the darker one is a retrieving maniac.
The idea of spitting treats sounds interesting and a good way to get them to focus on the you, as well.
Look and listen for the welfare of the whole people and have always in view not only the present but also the coming generations, even those whose faces are yet beneath the surface of the ground -- the unborn of the future Nation. The Constitution of the Iroquois Nations.
