Target training helps get your dog interested and comfortable with new objects. The first step of target training is placing a tasty treat in your hand and using it to entice your pup to follow your movements. Next, you'll incorporate the "touch" command. Once your dog's nose touches your hand, you'll say the word "touch" to reinforce the behavior. Eventually, you'll use this command to show your pup how to use the Hub's touchpads!
