In this episode of the Chaser training series from Hill's® Science Diet®, you’ll learn how teaching a dog verbal commands during playtime can help your dog learn an object’s name. Chaser’s owner John Pilley will guide you through dog training commands, plus show you how:
• Teaching a dog to heel, sit, catch or fetch helps build a foundation for learning
• Teaching only one object at a time can add focus to your session
• Repetition of the name of the object while your dog is playing aids greatly in learning
Chaser is a border collie that’s been called “The Smartest Dog in the World” by 60 Minutes. That’s because John has taught her to learn and respond to more than 1,000 words. You can use the Chaser method to train your dog to understand words, too.
