Brain Training For Dogs
Brain Training for Dogs is a brand new course that uses mental stimulation and training to unlock your dog’s natural intelligence. When this happens behaviors fade away, and more desirable behaviors take over.
Adrienne Farricelli is a CPDT KA dog trainer with years of knowledge of modifying behavior in dogs. She is also the creator of Brain Training for Dogs and author of several dog training books.
Exercise is vital to the mental health and well-being of your dog. It helps keep them healthy and fit. It can lower the risk of hip dysplasia, heart disease or obesity-related ailments such as cancer or diabetes.
You can also keep them interested and happy. Exercise together strengthens your relationship and helps to encourage socialization.
If a dog is not mentally stimulated, their brain can get cluttered with time. They may begin chewing on furniture or scratch things.
Training helps prevent these problems and improves your dog’s behavior around other dogs and humans. In some instances it may even save your dog’s life!
Mental exercise can also slow down the onset memory loss and dementia. It helps form new neural connections in the brain and protects existing nerve cells from degeneration.
Play the Game
Games are a great option to give your dog a mental stimulation. They can also be a good exercise for dogs that aren’t able to do as much physical exercise as they used to or for dogs who are recovering from an injury or surgery.
Simple brain games can be played in a small space such as a garden or a house. For instance, place pieces of your dog’s favourite food within the house (or outside if it’s warm enough) and let them hunt for it.
These brain games can be played for a few minutes at a time. They can provide your dog with an enjoyable mental exercise while you are training them. This helps them to learn faster and remain mentally sharp. This can also aid in improving their ability to concentrate on their commands and strengthen their relationship with their owners.
Treats are a great method to teach your dog. This is a great method to strengthen their training and stimulate their brains. However, you need to be cautious not to overdo it.
When training, it is important to be consistent with your instructions and treat only when they have followed the instruction correctly. Doing this will avoid sending mixed signals and can confuse your dog.
Puzzle toys, games and mental exercises are some of the most popular options for training dogs’ brains. They’re great for keeping your dog mentally active while giving them a chance to increase their confidence.
Keep treats hidden in different cups or containers. This is among the most played brain games for dogs. The dog has to guess what container they’re supposed be hiding under and, if they’re right you can reward them with a treat.
As a dog’s owner it is your responsibility to make sure that your dog is comfortable and well-adjusted. He should also be able to handle new situations. In this process socialization is essential.
In the early years, puppies have to be exposed to different types of people and animals, as well as different environments. If they are not exposed to these things they may become anxious and fearful.
They could even develop undesirable behaviours like aggression and phobias.
The good news is that socialization could help alleviate these issues and make life with your dog more enjoyable.
For instance, if you find that your puppy has rough mouthing with other dogs, offering them plenty of time to play with them will teach them bite inhibition.
Socializing your dog with other dogs, people, and in different environments can aid in reducing the anxiety of separation, or temper tantrums after you leave to work. It’s important to start small and then gradually progress to larger challenges as you progress.
