Training your dog should be a positive experience for both you and your pet. You can make training sessions enjoyable for both you and your canine by using certain products recommended by professional dog trainer Lisa Sellman of Aloha Pet Care and Dog Training.
Lisa recommends combining these three products with a loving tone of voice rather than speaking in an excited or too-firm way and using canine massage to help your dog feel safe, calm and relaxed.
Lisa advises dog owners to bring plenty of small treats for training sessions because food is a great bonding tool for dogs. She says, "I often encourage clients to not feed their dogs in the bowl and instead feed them kibble by kibble on walks." Dog treats come in a wide variety, including low calorie versions if you're concerned about your dog's weight.
Lisa recommends Thundershirts because they help dogs deal with anxiety in a natural way. The Thundershirt applies gentle but constant pressure on the dog, which has a calming effect. Dogs can move around freely in Thundershirts, so they're perfect for walks and training sessions.
