Reward Based Dog Training Curriculum 5
Walking together outside, Leave it
In this unit, we take our walking exercises outside. Walking together around the neighborhood and through your home town without your dog jumping, pulling, and misbehaving take practice. Curriculum unit 5 works on these skills, along with more advanced versions of “leave it.” Dog body language is an important part of training and dog safety for children. This guide features dog communication with the tail 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 isn’t just about dog training, it’s also about being a responsible pet owner and proper care for your dog. Activity Guide 5 talks about why your dog needs to go to the vet and why your dog should be spayed or neutered. A chart is included with foods not to feed your dog, a map drawing exercise, and a fun fill in the blank word game.
