Spending 10 minutes a day or 10 minutes every other day on training helps your dog’s mind stay stimulated. He/she can keep up on their skills and even learn something new. Try something your dog knows how to do and make it more complicated. You can build on a training exercise by adding distractions, like moving the training exercise outside, or to a new venue. Add length of time or distance. Think about taking another class, even though your dog might be doing well; just like people enjoy going to a class, meeting new people and learning something new, you dog will like meeting new dogs and puppies and learning new things.
Big Sky Dog Training is now teaching at PetPeople in Deerfield, IL, a great new store for our community. I have classes on Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m. and Sundays at 3:00 p.m. You can start the 6-week training program any time, as registration is “Open Enrollment.”
