Step 2 - Choosing The Reward
Besides positive reinforcement, you want to make sure you choose a good reward. One that isnt to rewarding, but one that makes your American Eskimo happy. Rewards dont have to be expensive treats, what I find works best are mini carrots you can buy at the produce section for about $1.99 a bag. They are not only very cheap but very healthy and juicy for your American Eskimo. Even better, they can be broken in half, or cut into thirds for making them go even further.
Step 3 - Getting Started
Choose a location, either outside or in the middle of a room inside. Gather your rewards and keep tem hidden. What works well is if you sit on the floor and place them behind you.
