The Importance and Power of Play

Our trainer Jaake has been to Boldon to meet Archie (a 9-month-old Border Terrier) for his 1st session.

We are working with Archie because he has hit adolescence and his previous training has taken a dip in its reliability (mainly recall). Not uncommon in adolescent dogs.

In this session, we discussed introducing a brand new recall cue, taught a hand touch, and looked at how we can incorporate play which is interactive with Archie’s owners into his training as previously Archie had only played with the other dogs that live in the household.

Playing with our dogs is super important for building a strong relationship and forming a bond that increases our value to them. We all should all play with our dogs on a regular basis. Archie hasn’t really played with his owners much so we looked at how Archie likes to play and how that can be interactive and also incorporated into training.

Turns out Archie absolutely loves playing with his owner and he smashed his 1st session. Great session.
