In this episode, I answer a bunch of questions in the email bag about:

  1. How to give a puppy a treat

Recall the 4 phases of obedience with puppies:


Phase 1: Luring and basic teaching

Phase 4: Challenging all elements in the progression of difficulty and moving the intermittent reinforcer to after the “break” command.
