Help! What Tip Bits can I use to train Lilly?
First let me say thank you to everyone who has sent me messages of encouragement over Lilly. We love her to bits and although sometimes she is hard work we will never give her up. I have been watching some of your video`s and was wondering what tip bits do you use to train your dogs. Due to her back ground Lilly has only just started to take food from my hand, we have tried buying dog treats from the pet shop but she is not intrested in them and I would like to reward her as well as giving her a big hug when she comes to us. Also has any one got any tips on how to stop her wetting herself when we come home. She is never left long because we are both retired, when we come in the door she goes mad running around and crying then wets herself, when this happens she then starts to shake and hides. (We think she was hit with a walking stick for wetting as a puppy) We do not shout at her but just take her outside but it can take ages before she carms down.

I don't know if you can get these in the UK but I use Zukes all natural salmon treats. They are soft and tiny and great for training. She may grow out of the excited peeing.

When Stella was really little she wasn't at all interested in treats other than her kibble, so at the advice of our trainer we bought some of the pre-cooked frozen chicken strips and I thawed them as needed and then diced those up into tiny pieces and would use those as treats. I also use Bil-Jac Little Jacs and I tear those up into about 3 or 4 pieces each because they're soft treats. She LOVES those now too.
