Impulse control training can pay off in a big way when your dog comes across tempting food or non-food items in the home or outdoors. Even a moment of hesitation can buy you enough time to prevent your dog from consuming something dangerous. It is super helpful to have a few tempting treats on hand while outdoors in case you need to trade for something you do not want them to consume. At Annex Animal Hospital, we promote positive reinforcement and force-free training techniques. Call us if you require a recommendation for a properly accredited trainer for routine training classes or a behaviour problem.
