[Ark Review]

. When playing toss and catch, try to choose toys that avoid being too heavy or too hard. For example, a Frisbee should be chosen as a soft Frisbee for dogs in order to avoid causing injury to the dog’s mouth. Also, balls that are too small are not suitable for dogs to play with by and by, as dogs are likely to accidentally swallow the ball and choke. The length of exercise time should be adjusted according to the size and age of the dog, and weather conditions should also be considered. For example, an adult Golden Retriever runs back and forth 20 times on a sunny day. Remember to take breaks every 15 minutes and keep your dog hydrated at all times. Toss and catch is an intense game, so dog owners should pay special attention to their dogs’ health when playing with them, especially if they are old or fat.

Five ways to communicate quickly with your dog


V. Training dogs to calculate math problems

In this performance training, boards with different numbers are inserted within a certain range. To make it easier to see the numbers on the boards, the boards can be painted white. The dog owner asks the dog to do an arithmetic performance. For example, the question, 10 – 4 = ? At this point, the dog walks to the place where the board is inserted, connects up and writes 6 boards and returns to you, meaning 10 – 4 = 6. You can use the name of the capital instead of the number on the board to perform. For example, the dog owner can ask the dog to find the wooden board with the capital of a certain country written on it, or perform with the flags of different countries and ask it to find the flag of a certain country. The dog performs these performances by distinguishing scents because it can simply search for its owner’s scent.

Suitable for ages 5-8 months

Training difficulty

[Training steps]

1. To train your dog to choose a flag with the owner’s scent, ask you and your family member to each take a flag and absorb the scent for a few minutes. Then, you and your family member place their flags 60 cm apart.

2. Issue a title code, your dog can easily smell you and thus the title absorbs your scent. If the dog is perceived to be wrong, you must issue a non-codeword. Once the dog is interested in the appropriate flag, he is called good to indicate a reward and encouraged to come back.

3. When using two flags, train the dog to consistently find the appropriate flag without any difficulty. As you achieve this ability, you can gradually increase the number of flags, but clearly verify that your scent only absorbs the flag that the dog is asked to come back to and does not allow others to touch the flag.

4. For a successful performance, it is best to insert the flags into the field before the performance begins. Insert the flags on the ground with a separation of 60 cm between each flag. It should, of course, be positioned so that it is not disturbed by other performances.

[Ark Review]

Don’t forget to give treats as encouragement as soon as the dog completes the action. Don’t worry that the scent on the flag will disappear. It can be retained for a long time and must last much longer than the performance requires. Some dogs become familiar with this type of performance easily, so it usually takes only simple training to be successful. This performance can be played with many different items.
