In one of his one-minute dog training videos, veterinarian-turned-dog-trainer Dr. Ian Dunbar offers dog walking training tips. Walking along in a busy park, with lots of children present, now and then he gives the dog he is walking a treat. So, he says, the dog is thinking that the park is a good place to be.
If you feed your dog on walks, you’ll have a different dog. He’ll enjoy it more. If you give him a treat when he sees a child (even some ways away) he’ll love it when he sees children.
I like these one-minute video tips of Ian Dunbar. I think they are a great length for busy people. I’d use them for training children to train dogs too!
