Basic Taigan Obedience Tips

Training needs to be a pleasant and rewarding situation for both you and the Taigan. If you are not in the best mindset for training, do not even begin. Always reward your Taigan for obeying your commands expeditiously! A treat is anything that your Taigan wants and is happy to earn. Edible treats are the expected prize but different treats could be verbalized commendation and playthings. Several shorter sessions are demonstrated to be better than a long one. Training should not contain any degrading comments or consequences. There should be no shouting, no smacking or hitting, no leash yanking on choke chains or collars, and absolutely no electric fences! Each training session is to be enjoyable and confidence-building with prizes for each job well done.
