What does positive reinforcement mean?

Positive reinforcement is one of the most effective methods of dog training. This particular method focuses on using rewards to help develop good behavior and promote progress.

The main idea of positive reinforcement is to let your pup associate good behavior with rewards such as food or letting them have some playtime with you or their favorite toys. An example of positive reinforcement in obedience training is when you tell your dog to come to you, and they listen, you give them a treat right after.
