  3. Train behaviors in small steps so your pet doesn't fail too often and become frustrated. Give your pet a lot of attention and a variety of rewards for each correct response. Only reinforce a behavior you want your pet to repeat; don't call attention to incorrect behavior.

  5. Decide what behaviors to train your pet to perform by watching your pet's everyday activities. Does your dog like to retrieve toys? Give him praise when he brings a toy back to you. The next time he retrieves, place an object in his path that he has to jump over to reach you then immediately reward him for jumping. Keep reinforcement consistent.
