What to do in FIRST training session of LURING a PUPPY! – Puppy Training by Kikopup


I train luring as a behavior, similar to targeting. For me it is extremely important to prevent frustration and over-arousal during the training process. If you lure your puppy for too long or hold the lure too close to the puppy where he thinks your actually giving him the treat… It can cause frustration and if your puppy is constantly frustrated/over-excited, it can lead to the dog being frustrated or over excited when performing the behaviors you train in this way. That is why I think it is extremely important to train luring as a behavior- beginning by first having the puppy or new adult dog follow the lure from a distance with the correct level of arousal. Make sure your dog has a closed mouth and is not acting frantically. You can experiment holding the lure higher up and from a few feet away. As your dog starts to understand the concept he is being reinforced for following, you can then add more advanced concepts to luring.
