You've heard us say it many times I'm sure: training mode is a hoax! That's because dogs are ALWAYS learning. They don't shut off when the bell rings for recess. Their existence and experiences will mold their behavior. They are learning ALL of the time!
Does that sound exhausting?
We've spent decades refining the training process and while it's important to strap on the bait pouch and do some dog training, what you do outside of 'training mode' is equally important. Dogs need a lot of successful repetition in any skill across multiple environments to truly understand what we expect from them. That could really eat up your time, but there are some EASY ways to get in more reps outside of your formal training sessions.
The added benefit to reinforcing your dog's training in their day-to-day life is that they'll learn to listen to you all of the time, not just when you're in training mode.
So, what are these easy ways to train we're talking about? Let's jump in!
