This is how my puppy, River, eats every piece of food she gets. Feeding time is training time. My dogs work for a living. This provides some of the mental stimulation they need and when combined with physical exercise most of the behaviour problems we see simply go away or are severely diminished.
This is how I instruct all of my clients in the program to go about it. Some do and some don’t and it is very easy to spot the difference in the dogs as a result. It isn’t that you can’t get results when not doing this but the results are just better when you do. This puppy is twelve weeks old and has been with us for only three weeks. She’s almost fully through the base obedience we train our dogs already. Granted, without distraction but that will come later.
If you have a dog with behaviour problems, this is step one in the process and it has a very big impact. Teach obedience through food reward and make it so it is the only way they are fed. Combine this with the appropriate physical exercise for the breed and you will be well on your way to solving your dog’s problems.
