Training with the use of Pet Control HQ yummy dog treats is a powerful and effective way to teach your pet basic commands and reinforce good behaviours. Training treats make the process a rewarding and enjoyable experience for both you and your fur-riend.

My father was a veterinarian, and my love and passion for animals began at a very early age. I grew up in a home in which I was exposed to weird and wonderful pets that roamed freely on our property. You could say it was like living at a real mini zoo! Through the years I have picked up a few tips and techniques for training your dog successfully.

 What Are Dog Treats?


Dog treats are edible rewards that are given to a dog in order to encourage them to complete a desired behavior. Usually, dog treats are made from delicious ingredients your dog doesn't get as part of their regular diet.  Dog treats can be purchased from pet stores or made at home. Store-bought treats may contain the 'nasties' to prolong the shelf life. 

Homemade treats are best as you will find they are made from human-grade ingredients that are safe and healthy for your dogs. At Pet Control HQ our commitment to our fur-lowers is to provide training treats that are 100% natural and healthy and suitable for all breeds and dog sizes. We even cater to the vegetarian pup!

 How to Train Your Dog With Treats 

  1. Start with Simple Commands
    Begin by teaching your dog simple commands such as sit, stay, and come. Use treats to reward your dog when they complete the desired behavior. For example, when your dog sits, say “sit” and give them a treat.
  1. Use Positive Reinforcement
    Positive reinforcement is an important part of successful training. Give your dog treats when they complete the desired behavior and ignore them when they do not.
  1. Be Patient
    Training your dog with treats can take time and patience. Be consistent and persistent in your training and do not give up if your dog does not seem to be getting it. 
  1. Be Consistent
    Consistency is key when training your dog with treats. Stick to the same commands, rewards, and methods of training to ensure that your dog is learning the desired behavior.
  1. Make Training Fun
    Make sure to keep training sessions fun for your dog. Use different types of treats to keep them engaged and reward them often.
