Surprise your dog with rewards after he or she has done something you like. This video clip shows me calling my dog and then surprising him with a toy he’s never seen before. His speed and focus as he approaches show the results you can get by using surprises in your training. Powerful stuff!
To teach a great come when called, start with the Gotcha Game.
How can you incorporate the surprise factor into other behaviors you wish would become automatic for your dog?
