Top tips: motivation in obedience training
Kamal Fernandez is a trainer in competitive obedience with East London Dog Training
. Not only that, but he delivers seminars on the topic all over the world. In this video, he shares with us his top tips for motivating a dog to work for us.
Even though Kamal's perspective is Obedience, we can see that his techniques can be used for training in general. He demonstrates how to balance motivation and enthusiasm from the dog with control and how the motivator is used as a reward for the behaviour we want.
He also shows us how to integrate a "click" word or sound with the motivator as a signal to tell the dog that what they're doing is correct.
