Dog training tip of the day- Fading a Lure (while teaching SPIN)

This is a quick how to video I made for a youtube user who said they were having trouble getting rid of the lure. I hope to make a more in depth video on this subject. As well as how to ween off of treats as well. But for now here is my Dog training tip of the day. I created the video immediately after having the idea to make it, so I used my own dogs, it would have been great to have used a puppy. I encourage other dog trainers out there to make How to videos on how to fade a lure when training with food, because it is information that is very important to stop training enthusiasts from getting stuck down the road

Quick tips when using a lure:

1 Get RID of the lure as soon as you can! The goal is within 3 trials.

2 If you don’t have a clicker use a very short word like “yes!” or “yep!”

3 Always make it harder and harder, don’t get stuck at the same level of criteria

4 If you go to far to quickly you can always go back a step

5 If your dog is not following the lure, get a smellier lure- real meat!
