Basic Obedience Dog Training

Brain Training For Dogs

Brain Training for Dogs, a new course, combines the stimulation of the mind and dog training to unlock the inherent intelligence of your dog. As this happens, the problematic behavior is reduced, and more desirable behavior emerges in their place.

The program was designed by Adrienne Farricelli, a CPDT-KA dog trainer with years of experience in modifying behavior of dogs. She is the founder of Brain Training for Dogs, and is the author of a variety of books on dog training.

Exercise

Exercise is vital to the mental well-being and wellbeing of your dog. It helps keep them fit and healthy and reduce the risk of heart diseases, hip dysplasia, or obesity-related diseases like diabetes or cancer.

It also keeps them happy and engaged with you. Exercise together strengthens your bond and helps to encourage socialization.

If a dog is not mentally challenged their brain may become cluttered over time. They may start chewing on things or scratch furniture.

Training can help avoid these problems and improves your dog’s behavior around dogs and other dogs. In some cases it can save your dog’s life!

Mental exercise can also reduce the onset memory loss and dementia. It helps create new brain connections and also protects nerve cells against degeneration.

Games

If you are seeking a simple way to give your dog mental stimulation, games are the best way to go. These games are also a great method to exercise dogs who aren’t as active as they were or dogs recovering from an injury or surgery.

Simple brain games can be played in a small space like a garden or house. For instance, you can hide bits of your dog’s favourite food within the house (or outside in the warmer weather) and let them search for it.

Brain games can be fun and can be played for only some minutes each time. They can also assist your dog to remain mentally sharp while you train them. This can help them learn faster and remain sharp. This can aid in improving their ability to concentrate on commands and strengthen their bond with their owner.

Treats

One of the most effective ways to teach your dog to use treats. This is a great way to boost obedience training and also to stimulate their brains. You should be cautious to not overdo it.

During training, it’s important to follow your instructions and treat only those who have followed the instruction correctly. This will help prevent your dog from getting confused by mixed signals.

Puzzle toys, games and mental exercises are just a few of the most requested options for dogs who are brain-training. These toys are a great way to keep dogs mentally active and help them build confidence.

One of the most loved brain games for dogs involves hiding treats in various containers or cups. The dog has to figure out what container they’re supposed be under, and if they’re correct you can reward them with an edible treat.

Socialization

As a dog’s owner, it is your responsibility to make sure that your dog has confidence, adaptability and capability to deal with a variety of situations. In this regard, socialization is crucial.

In the beginning of their lives, young puppies should be exposed to various types of animals, people, and environments. They may become anxious or fearful when they aren’t exposed to these kinds of situations.

They may even exhibit bad behavior, such as aggression or phobias.

Socialization can ease these issues and make life easier for your dog.

If your puppy is rough-mouthing other dogs, allowing them to play with them for a long period of time will teach them to bite inhibition.

Having your dog socialize with people, other pets and other animals can also curb their anger or separation anxiety when you leave for work. It’s important to start with a small amount of time and build up to bigger issues over time.
