Wonderful things happen at mealtime — for you and Spot. You get the opportunity to have your dog perform (reinforcing all that dog training you’ve done) for his meal. This could be sit, down, hand touch or spin etc.
What exactly does it look like? Hold the food bowl in your hand or place on the counter. Give or signal your command once and wait (good to start with a sit, which is usually the easiest). Your dog sits and the bowl goes to the floor with praise and a release “OK” that they can move to get the food. Once your dog has the program down, you can introduce other commands or signals. Mix and match and keep the meal event fun!!!
