Dogs love to chase after toys, but they often fail to spot the prize they are chasing.
To keep your puppy’s eyes out for the prize, make sure that you provide plenty of treats for him to enjoy.
If your dog loves to chase, he will often try to grab anything he can find, including food or toys.
This will cause your puppy to stop chasing after a toy, and may even cause him to stop trying to grab a treat.
Try offering a toy or a treat to your puppy at least every 10 minutes.
If he continues to chase or try to retrieve it, provide a different toy or treat every 10 to 15 minutes.
Be careful to give your puppy treats to keep him interested in the prize.
For example, if he has been chasing the treats for a while and is trying to pull them away, try offering a treat or a snack to help keep him distracted.
If you notice that your puppy is starting to get frustrated, gently encourage him to keep trying to retrieve the toy or the treat, but always offer a toy if he stops trying.
If a dog is getting frustrated, offer a treat instead of a toy to give him the chance to calm down.
The best way to keep a dog from getting bored and distracted is to provide treats and toys as often as he does, so he doesn’t become bored or frustrated.
If the dog gets bored, stop providing treats and try again later.
