Do you have trouble getting your dog to come back in after you let him out in the backyard?
- Before you let your dog out show him an extra special treat (like a whole hot dog, if he's a large dog!) let him watch you place it near the doorway (inside).
- Then let him out and call him back as soon as he is out the door. When he comes back, make a big deal about it and give him the whole hot dog.
- Repeat and notice how much faster he gets each time!
- That's it. Except just one little thing. The reward has to be extra super special. Don't try to pass of hard biscuits as special enough. They aren't and it won't work with biscuits. Be sure to us something moist and soft and smelly (turkey, bison or beef pepperoni, and natural hot dogs or a big chunk of Polish sausage are perfect) that he never gets at any other time.
