Shenzi is doing well with training. But when we give her a reward, she snatches it out of our hands. How do we teach her to be easy when giving her treats? Ill hold it from her, but shes just not getting it.
Add verbal bridging to this excellent advice and you will help your dog learn even faster.put the treat in your closed hand then put the back of your hand to the mouth tell the dog take easy and when it opens its mouth softely you can turn your hand open it and give the treat.
that teaches them a soft mouth and saves your fingers. turst me it helps i trained peanut with his kibbles so they are tiny circles and he HAD a rough mouth. now he takes treats with his tounge and we no longer have to use that method he learned how to politely take rewards.
