Leerburg's Dog Training Podcast
One of the most important concepts that every new pet owner must learn, if they want to become an effective dog trainer, is how to motivate their dog to want to follow commands and participate in training. When people first begin to train their dog many confuse “rewarding their dog” with “motivating their dog”. While these two concepts are very close in nature there is a difference.
