Reward Based Dog Training Curriculum 1
Introduction to reward based dog training, getting your dog’s attention, and dog bite prevention
Activity Guide 1 provides an introduction to the Good Dog Training Program and sets up families for success with their dog. Dog body language is an important part of training and dog safety for children. This guide features dog communication with the whole body and can be used with the Dog Smart Card Game’s Whole Body Cards (sold separately). Dog Smart teaches dog bite prevention to all ages and will be used throughout Activity Guides 1 – 6. Our program is designed to get all members of the family to take an active part in training and caring for their dog. A Dog Care Chart is provided for family members to assign who will be responsible for different dog care jobs throughout the week. Suggestions are provided to make a fun game of dog care with a reward at the end of the week. Activity Guide 1 also introduces families to Tellington T-Touch and gives two introductory exercises. T-Touch is an excellent way to teach children to be more gentle with their family pets.
