Praising dogs properly: That’s the way to go

By praise or a reward dogs can be educated and trained very well. It is important that you praise your four-legged friend correctly, because: Too much or wrong praise can quickly have a negative effect. Here you will learn what is important when praising and what you should avoid.

In fact, you can do a few things wrong when praising your dog. For example, if you praise too much and give your cold-blooded dog a treat for every little thing, the reward will lose its value and no longer achieve the desired effect. The right dosage is what matters.

This is what makes “good praise

You can usually recognize good praise by the joyful reaction of your dog. If he is completely excited, he will remember in the best case that his previous behavior is good and will repeat it from now on. This is a positive educational measure. The type of praise can be quite different. Many dogs already react very joyfully to the so-called human praise, which is connected with nice words like “finely done” and strokes. In addition, praise can be associated with giving toys or treats. However, you should not overdo it with the latter type of reward.

Praising dogs properly – not too much, not too little

If you praise your dog every time you give him a treat, it will not only have a negative effect on his figure, it will also reduce the success of your educational measure. Praising with food should be rather sparing and always surprising, so as to reinforce a desired behavior. Basically, the following applies to all praise: If you praise too much, the gesture will eventually lose its meaning for the four-legged friend. The praise as a training measure no longer works.

Also important: Be careful with praise as a result of luring situations. If, for example, you want to teach your animal companion the command “Come” and always reward him with treats, he may eventually only come to you when he senses the chance of food.
