I find the best training aid to be treats, small pieces of human food, chopped up and given to the dog. When it has done something good has always worked wonders. That is unless your dog doesn’t have an interest in treats. This is a cheap method of a training aid. But if you want to blow some cash there are hundreds of options available for you.


For dog agility training aids that are available are things like anti-bark collars. Many dogs have a problem when they do dog agility training. They bark constantly, basically because of the hype involved. Anti-bark collars do one of two things or sometimes both. They give a small electric charge when your dog barks and spray some water up into their face. People may think this is cruel. But it is completely harmless it just lets your dog know that barking is not acceptable. These collars are available at pet shops and on the internet and are not to expensive.


For dog obedience, some dog training aids that are available are dog clickers. The newest craze out on the market allows owners, instead of associating sit with a word. They use a click instead and reward with treats, no punishment allowed.


Another dog training aid available is a harness. This gets fitted around your dog’s upper body. So when you are teaching him to heel a slight tug on the harness pulls him back completely. The harness is used as an obedience training aid. And it is used for bigger dogs such as German shepherds and Rottweilers.


There are also dog training aids available around the home and are simple and effective. Many people turn to dog training aids when nothing else has worked. But they don’t have to be the last thing you try. With aids so cheap these days. There is no reason why you can't invest in something. That will make your dog's learning process a lot more exciting!
