Publisher's Summary

When it comes to teaching your pets new skills and tricks, you need to undergo three important stages:

1. Teaching Stage - In this first phase, your dog is unaware of the things that you are requiring him to do. This is the stage wherein you will introduce new skills to your pets using various learning aids. You will teach him commands or phrases that will elicit a response or action. When you instruct him to sit, you can use treats or useful objects to help your pet comprehend what you want him to do when you utter the command.

2. Correction Stage - Once your dog understands the command, it is now time to polish his skills. First, hide the treats from your dog. If your pet manages to follow the command that you have given, provide him with kind praises and a treat. If the dog was not able to perform the action correctly, correct him gently and show how it is done. If he is able to do it properly, reward him with a treat.

3. Proofing Stage - You can only reach this stage if your pet shows exemplary performance in a consistent manner. The proofing stage aims to ensure that your pet's response is still accurate even though he is in a different environment or setting. In this phase, you need to challenge your dog's abilities by including some distractions around him. If your pet gets distracted, you have to coach him to stick to the drill. Having an obedient companion that stays focused amidst distractions will make him more reliable in any type of situation.
