Someone sent this to me via email. I enjoyed the video because I love watching well trained dogs in play or work. But more than that, it stood out to me , that not only were these dogs well trained, they seemed very happy in doing what they were doing.
That is good training. Train your dog in a way that makes him/her "want" to do the trick you are teaching. Dogs naturally want to please their owners. Work with that. With a tiny little treat, a reasonable amount of respect, a little bit of time, and a lot of praise, you can train your dog to do many things.
There are many good videos out there if you need help. Find the training techniques that most fit you and your breed of dog. A well trained dog, is a well loved dog.
Enjoy the video!
