Have you or do you use any training aids or attend training classes with your dogs?

Reuben attends a training class once a week, he has already completed all the grades but he still goes for the socialisation and I can work with him on any weak areas, ie emergency recall.

I also use a whistle to get his attention when he is playing with some of his dog friends, he looses his hearing on occasion when he is having rough and tumle

My 2 have never been to any classes.

I always use food as a training aid. Daisy has always been great with her recall as she is very greedy and comes back everytime for a treat!

One training Aid im a big fan of is

Clix house training line. They are cheap and allow you to remove your dog from the room in a non confrontational way when the dog performs unwanted behaviours such as chewing, barking, mouthing, stealing.

With consistency they really enforce how dogs learn, through repetition and association.

Never leave your dog un attended wearing a house training line though.
