Treat pouches are a great tool for training any dog, especially puppies, as they help you to be more hands-free and organized, says Haylee Bergeland, CPDT-KA, CBCC-KA, RBT, and Daily Paws' pet health and behavior editor. "You can store all your awesome reinforcers in a handy place, keeping your pockets clean, and avoiding the smells of treats on your clothes while helping you to deliver a treat quickly."
Clicker training is extremely popular for dog training, and for good reason. "When paired with your pup's favorite reinforcer, like a tasty treat, the sound of the clicker becomes a signal that your pup will get that wonderful goodie," Bergeland says. "It makes learning more clear and precise for them ... and more fun!"
While Bergeland does not recommend using the ultrasonic whistle for help with teaching commands (that's what the clicker is for!), she says it can be used in emergency situations to keep your pup safe.
"If your pup is heading toward danger or accidentally got away from you, you can blow the whistle to get their attention," Bergeland says. "As soon as your pup approaches you can click and give them lots and lots of their favorite treats. The whistle should not replace teaching your pup to come when called and should be reserved for emergencies."
Remember, training should be a positive experience for both you and your pup. Keep training sessions short and fun so your pup doesn't get bored—you don't get frustrated.
