Rewarding Your Dog

Rewarding your dog is one of the most enjoyable parts of dog ownership. It's a feel-good motivator for both dog and owner and something everyone in the family can do. Working out what makes your dog tick is really important; not all dogs are motivated by food. Some prefer toys, a special game, or simply some praise and a stroke.

Here are 10 reasons why you should reward your dog:

  • 1. It improves the relationship bond between you.
  • 2. It supports your dog's learning and understanding of what is expected of them.
  • 3. Rewarding your dog for good behaviour helps to build their confidence.
  • 4. It can help to teach your dog new skills.
  • 5. Rewarding your dog makes you feel good! There’s nothing better than seeing your dog being happy!
  • 6. Rewarding your dog makes you a better owner; it helps you to understand your dog better.
  • 7. Rewarding your dog helps to correct poor behaviour and instil better responses to situations.
  • 8. Rewarding your dog for good behaviour is the right thing to do because your dog shouldn't ‘just do it'. We all like to be rewarded for a good job!
  • 9. Reward-based training has long lasting effects.
  • 10. Rewarding your dog leads to a happy and friendly dog!
