Why shouldn't training your dog be fun? Everyone knows it's easier to learn when you are having a good time. While there is no one-size-fits-all dog training method, one that is fun has a better chance of working out. Training is not something you ever really finish. It's an ongoing process throughout the life of your dog. When you are having a good time and training at the same time, the bond between you and your dog is strengthened. Try to make training fun for you and your dog to see how it works out.

How can you make training fun? First of all, keep it positive. However, don't forget that positive reinforcement is about more than just handing out treats. Try implementing some games into your dog's training regimen. Games are a great way to reward your dog. Plus, you can use games to prevent unwanted behaviors. Learn more about training with games.

Want another way to make training fun? Teach your dog some fun and easy tricks. When your dog knows how to do things like spinning and rolling over, he will be the life of the party. Most dogs will love the attention!

How do you make training fun for you and your dog?
