Proper training plays a critical role in a dog’s development and is important for several reasons. Most importantly, a well trained dog lives a happier and healthier life. When training is done correctly, it provides mental stimulation which increases happiness and the ability for your dog to safely interact with their environment.
Now you can provide expert-level dog training without bringing your furry friend to training classes or hiring an expensive dog trainer nearby. The Sniffy App (available for iOS and Android) provides training that benefits both your dog and you because it focuses on reward-based training methods. This sets your dog or puppy up for success while also building a strong bond between yourself and your dog.
Reward based training uses positive reinforcement to encourage good behavior. Rewards can include human contact, affection, treats, toys, and food. Training that’s based on rewards involves ignoring any unwanted behaviors so as to not encourage bad habits. Many dog owners think that yelling at their dog or getting angry when the dog misbehaves will discourage those actions. It can actually achieve just the opposite. Many dogs see all signs of attention as positive and repeat those behaviors as a result.
The Sniffy App includes everything you need for training your dog. Whether you’re bringing home a new puppy, you’re rescuing an older dog, or you have multiple dogs that need training, there is a plan that is right for you. The Sniffy App includes customized plans that help you stick to a daily routine and even track progress as you go. There are video tutorials featuring certified dog training experts that you can watch on demand whenever you need them. If you have multiple dogs you can set up separate profiles with different plans for each dog. You can even create a family account and share the data to multiple phones so the whole family can get in on the fun.
You can download the Sniffy App for free from the App Store or Google Play and get started today. Dog ownership can be a big responsibility, but with proper training both you and your furry buddy can get the most out of a long and loving relationship.
