How to get your dog to do what you want - Motivation is one of the most powerful tools we can use when training a dog and it works from house training to recall. Over time you will learn what things your dog loves, whether it is off lead play with other dogs or a tasty treat/playing with their favourite toy. These can all be used within your motivational training. 

Considering the motivator is the key to getting the most from your dog. Different breeds have different innate drives. Don’t expect to take a hunting breed to the local park and not have them chase the birds and rabbits.
