Ten Helpful Dog Training Tips

by Innotek Sporting Dogs Division

1. When your pup is teething and chewing on everything in sight, give him a chew toy filled with peanut butter and dry dog food. It will keep him busy for hours.

2. Teach your dog to drink from a backpacker’s squirt bottle. It will then be easy to cool him down on hot early-season hunting trips.

3. Get a list of local veterinarians’ phone numbers before you visit a new hunting area. That way you’ll always be ready for an emergency.

4. When using an electronic collar on your dog the first time, always use the lowest level necessary to get the response you want.

5. If you are going to train with an electronic collar, first have your dog wear an inactive collar during training sessions for a couple of weeks. This gets him used to the routine.

6. Learn from the pros: Seminars by reputable dog trainers give you hands-on experience that you just can’t find in a book.

7. Watch every good training video you can get your hands on. If you get one or two good tips from each one, you’ll be a better trainer.

8. If you have trouble with a dog that just won’t quit barking, consider an electronic bark-control collar. It is a safe, effective solution to one of a dog owner’s biggest problem.

9. Current I.D. tags and a good beeper collar are cheap insurance against losing your dog.

10. A pre-season trip to a hunting preserve is a great warm-up for your dog (and it’s good for your shooting skills, too).
