Who doesn’t love the feeling of that wet nose under your feet during the night? Well this week Aschley demonstrates how to teach your dog to nose touch, but this time it’s your palm instead of your feet. What exactly is nose touch? Nose touch is a form of agility dog training that teaches a dog to find and touch a target with its nose. With this, you are essentially teaching your dog how to target. Nose touch training is a good way to get your dog to focus on you when scared or timid.
As with every training, remember to have a handful of treats to get your dog to cooperate with you. This will allow for more effective and faster learning. Who doesn’t like to be rewarded for a job well done? We know we do!
