Creating Motivation

In this episode, we discuss the importance of motivation in dog training. Motivation is the most important aspect when training any dog and, sadly, the most neglected. In the sports dog world, the importance of creating the right motivation is understood and used well, but it is ignored in many other areas of dog training.

We discuss the two different types of motivation that matter. The motivation to do or have and the motivation to avoid. Both are equally important, and any effective dog training program includes them in the right ratio.
