Welcome to this episode of the Sexier than a Squirrel podcast, the podcast that brings you real-life dog training results, and sometimes human training ones too!
In this excitingly insightful episode, we're joined once again by superstar trainer and coach, Dave, who is a seasoned expert who has worked with all dog breeds, sizes, ages, and operational dogs performing tasks like search and drug detection.
Join us as we delve deep into the topic of motivation, a common challenge for many dog owners in their training journey. Dave is back to bring us some exceptional insight into how you can get a dog who is motivated to engage, play, and train with you!
Throughout the episode, Dave emphasizes that motivation underpins everything, whether working with operational dogs or playful pets. We explore the misconception that motivation must only involve toys, food, or games and discover practical tips and game strategies, such as engagement exercises and the “Misses” game, to enhance your dog's motivation.
Plus, Dave shares valuable insights on tailoring your approach to each dog, recognizing their preferences, and finishing training sessions on a high note — and so much more!
