Positive reward-based training is a method that uses positive motivators to reinforce a dogs behavior. By communicating clearly to the dog what we want them to do and rewarding that behavior, the dog will repeat that behavior.
By motivating with treats, praise and playtime, the dog is rewarded for performing the behavior the owner is asking for. Behavior that is rewarded is repeated. Your dog will learn that coming to you when called is a positive experience and he will repeat the behavior.
