As the students filed into a competitive obedience class Brychwyn, Wilhelm and I were taking at a local dog training studio, the teacher watched the humans haul in massive bags of training tools and joked "because if we didn't have all this stuff, we'd be terrible dog trainers." While it is true that some training tools are necessary to make training fun and successful, we don't really need all that much stuff. I admit that I jump to purchase every fabulous new positive reinforcement training tool available but in the end there is a lot of fun to be had with the boxes those tools are shipped in. That's right. One of the most fun and versatile training tools is a plain old cardboard box.
Have you ever played 101 Things To Do With A Box or used a box as a training tool?
What are your favorite training games with a box?
Next Monday, October 6th, for the Positive Pet Training Blog Hop, we'd like you to share your plain old cardboard box training stories. Of course, Any and all positive reinforcement based training posts and stories are always welcome. Join us!
