Praise the Dog and Mean IT!

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 05:13:33 GMT

Some cops have a hard time really praising their dogs. When you praise your dog, you need to mean it from the heart. You can't be monotone and stiff, "Good boy," that sounds like your "no" or "Sit" or "Platz". Think of it like when you talk to a baby. Get excited, raise your pitch. Dogs are the only animals that read human expression. Your dog will know if you mean it and if you feel dumb while you're doing it, you're probably doing it correctly.
