Use Positive Reinforcement First, Then Give A Reward

Use Positive Reinforcement – First off, what is positive reinforcement exactly? Well positive reinforcement is all the things tangable treats are not. For example, the “good boy” or “good girl” words, the high pitched “good dogs” and the quick rubbing and scratching. This is where you want your pets rewards to be at essentially.

Before you give your American Eskimo a treat always use positive reinforcement first. When in training mode, do not give a treat every time. This will cause htem to get full, sick or have an unexpected mess in the house. It will also cause them to think that a reward is always going to follow them doing something right.

Thats why positive reinforcement works well, because it makes your American Eskimo feel good, even if a treat is not present.
