In the first module, we will cover the process taken in which we build drive and enthusiasm for our play interaction.
Some of the topics covered will be:
: Toy selection
: Targeting and toy presentations
: Movement during play
: Reinforcing interaction
: Use of the leash for interaction reinforcement
: Theory and application of marker training
By following the steps in this first module, you reinforce the natural play behaviors in the dog. By doing so, the dog becomes much more dependent on the handler to fulfill its need for play interaction, thus creating a stronger bond between dog and handler.
