Go Fetch!

Question 1 (1 of 10)

Isn't that a song by Elvis Costello? No, that's not the answer we're looking for.

Matty says that "love, praise, and affection" is the best thing for your dog. You want to offer positive reinforcement at all times. Your dog will love you for it and reward you. And never strike, yell at, or punish your dog. This will only hurt him and make him afraid of you. Verbal and physical abuse is ineffective in training.
