Basic Puli Obedience Tips
Training has to be a positive and enjoyable situation for both you and your Puli. If you’re not in the best mood for training, don’t even start. Always treat your Puli for heeding your commands to the tee! A treat is anything that your Puli wants and is happy to earn. Snacks are an obvious prize but different treats could be verbalized praise and playthings. Several brief sessions are typically more effective than a single long one. Training mustn’t involve any degrading comments or punishment. There should be no yelling, no hitting or smacking, no leash jerking on training chains or collars, and absolutely no electric fences! Each training session must be enjoyable and reinforcing with praise for jobs well done.
