Recently, Fitdog was featured on The Dogington Post with our article “Tips for Training Non-Treat Motivated Dogs.” We recommend this read for any dog parent who struggles with keeping their dog’s attention during training lessons.
Could your dog care less about treats when it comes to training? You try incentivizing your dog with bite-size treats, but it makes no difference. Your dog just won’t listen. Well, this article may be perfect for you. We cover all the different ways people incentivize their non-treat motivated dogs. Additionally, we explain ways you can incorporate little training lessons in your everyday life.
If you feel you can relate to the following excerpt, this article may be useful to you:
“When it comes to training non-treat motivated dogs, the key is really finding something that your dog is interested in. Whether it’s toys, a pillow, a certain smell, another person, or another animal, find something that brings over-the-top joy to your dog. This is your first indicator towards a possible alternative to using treats during training lessons.”
Training non-treat motivated dogs is much easier with the right knowledge. With a little information and enough confidence, you can teach your dog almost anything. But if you do need to bring in the experts, you know who to call.
