Summary of the video:

The most important thing to know when training a dog is to reinforce the behavior you want.

The more often dogs are reinforced, the often they do what you want them to do, instead of other unwanted behavior.

The trick is to catch them doing what you want them to do – and reward them. Think of what behavior you would like to see and reward them only for that.

Using a reinforcing approach will change your life. It takes the stress of training away making both you and your dog happy. This way dogs will learn what you want them to do instead of getting punished for what you don’t want them to do.

There is one secret to training dogs. This is it. At its foundation, training dogs IS this easy!
