Dog training games are always fun for both your dog and you. I know from experience that this is a great way to help speed up your training program that you are using and make it even more enjoyable. If you consider that your children learn much quicker about some of the basics and rules of a game because it is fun. The same can be said for your pet because if something is fun to them then they are going to want to keep doing this action. Here are some games that you can play with your dog that can help them learn.
The first game that you can use to help teach your dog is fetch. I know that this is an old one that you might not think about using to help your pet learn, but it is possible. You see playing this with your dog will teach them to go get things and to give the item to you after they bring it back to you. This will teach them to release and leave the item behind which will help you teach them the leave it command.
The second game that you will want to use is the name one. Now with this one it sounds kind of silly, but it will help them learn their name because you will keep repeating their name. When they look at you then you will praise them. Then something that I do is mix in some other names so they recognize there own in a group of words. However, this is something that I do after they get the basics down.
Dog training games are a great way to help your dog learn. I know that for my kids they learned more about stuff when they had fun and a dog training game is a great way to help your dog learn.
