How do you say I love you to a dog? Find Out Here

Sleep next to each other

If you don’t care to let your dog in bed with you, even an afternoon snooze on the couch together will relax both you and your dog.

Shared experiences and training sessions build trust, communication, and partnership. Walks and adventures give plenty of opportunities to work on skills like loose leash walking and recall. Dogs thrive on routine and schedule, so a daily walk with training mixed in help them understand how much you love and care.

Learn To Hug Like a Dog

Did you know that dogs have their own way of hugging? Research has found that when a dog leans against you, they are actually giving you a “doggie hug!” Typically large dogs will “hug” by putting their whole weight against you and smaller dogs will curl up right next to you. Next time you want to give your dog a “hug,” sit close to your furry friend and let them lean on you. It will mean the world to them.

Step 1: Charging The Clicker

The first step on your training adventure begins with charging the clicker. This step is important because right now, your dog doesn’t know what the clicker signifies. You’ll need to teach her that the “click” sound means that she’s about to get a treat! Trainers call this “charging” the clicker because it’s like charging your phone – you’re getting it ready for use!

Sit in a quiet place with your dog and click the clicker. Then give your dog a treat. Do this over and over again. Soon, the click will predict a treat to your dog, the same way Pavlov’s bell predicted food for his dogs.

Once your dog knows that the clicker means, “Good dog, now you’re getting a treat,” you’re in business! You can use a clicker to train your dog to do almost anything, so feel free to experiment with it. Just remember that the click is a promise to reward the dog for her hard work. Don’t forget to give her the paycheck (treats)!
