Take Advantage of Mealtime!

Posted by on January 2, 2014

feeding dogWonderful things can happen at mealtime — for you and Spot.

You get the opportunity to have your dog perform for his meal. This could be sit, down, hand touch or spin etc or you can perfect and proof a skill you are currently working on for Rally, Obedience or Agility.

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 see what happens (good to start with a simple skill).
  • Your dog does the skill in the manner in which you want (your criteria) 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 commands and keep the meal event fun!!!
