The 5 step approach for dog owners

Following the news about the  ‘5 step approach for parents’ which recommends parents should:

  1. Read to your child for 15 minutes
  2. Play with your child on the floor for 10 minutes
  3. Talk with your child for 20 minutes with the television off
  4. Adopt positive attitudes towards your child and praise them frequently
  5. Give your child a nutritious diet to aid development

this can be used as a good basis for living with your dog:

  1. Reward good behaviour frequently with treats, games, praise and positive attention
  2. Train 2 or 3 sessions of 3 minutes a day on days you don’t attend training classes
  3. Play with your dog for at least 10 minutes
  4. Make time to just relax together; stroking or massaging your dog if they enjoy it, or just ‘being with’ your dog in companionable silence
  5. Make sure your dog has a balanced diet and plenty of fresh water
