Recommend Training Tools

The Humane Society of Boulder Valley recommends the following training tools:

  • Food rewards for good behavior (soft, small, yummy treats, including Natural Balance food roll, hot dogs, cheese, baby food)
  • Favorite dog toys, including tennis balls and squeaky toys
  • Lots of praise, love and attention for good behavior
  • Treat bags for easy delivery of rewards (and to keep your clothes clean)
  • Clickers to communicate exactly which behavior earned your dog the reward
  • SENSE-ation™ Harness (or other pain-free no-pull harness) to immediately end on-leash pulling
  • Gentle Leader Head Halter TM for additional on-leash control
