Creating Your Dog Training Plan: Susan Garrett’s Checklist #131 #podcast

How would you rate your last three dog training sessions on a scale of 1 to 10? Today I’m sharing my training checklist and how I plan for success in dog training. If you want to train your dog, it’s worth training the best you can. A training plan for your puppy or dog will improve your sessions, increase success, and see your training progress faster.

In the episode you’ll hear:
• Why to know if your training is skills, behaviour, manners, sport or fitness.
• About your time and the length of training sessions.
• The reasons to know the behaviors you will be training.
• Why to mix in training something fun, your domino and something new.
• How to record keep your training session.
• Why to know what training equipment you will use, including rewards.
• How I always warm up before a training session.
• About knowing what success is and your criteria.
• The reason environmental manipulation creates faster success.
