Play can benefit your relationship
Any activity that promotes positive emotional reactions will also benefit your (and your puppy’s) overall mental health. This, in turn, benefits physical health too. Extra play activity is also a great way to increase exercise levels which of course improves good health.
Brain Games for Puppies only employs reward-based teaching methods
Rewarding is not spoiling. This is a very important distinction to make. If your puppy is taught that rewards come from performing in a certain way, he is actually earning the ‘wage’. This is very different from being offered lots of food or praise for doing nothing, or for free.
The treat test can also be applied to toys, to that you can establish which are our puppy’s favourite playthings.
