Dog Training: dog puppy rewards size training treat
leave a comment
Dogs don’t care about the size of the treat you give them…they care about getting the treat. So, treat your dog more often with very small morsels.
One big treat each day, teaches them that they get one big treat a day. When you give your dog smaller treats each time they do something good they learn that good behavior elicits a reward.
If you want to give your dog a treat, make him/her do something for it. Each time you reward her for an accomplishment, she learns something.
What sized treat should I give my dog?
Give toy-sized dogs approximately a 1/2 inch x 1/2 inch treat.
Give big dogs just enough so that he can tell you’ve given him a treat. Try a 1/4 inch x 1 inch circle. Go as small as you can.
Remember, treat LESS more OFTEN!
