- Developed a system of incentives – the key to success. This method is the most efficient among all available, so why not use it and you not give the necessary stimulus for the baby to continue to learn many new skills? A system of rewards includes not only treats, but also fun games or hypocoristic words, the manifestation of love.
- A collar is recommended to put on before going outside. The first model of the collar should be as easy, simple, not to cause discomfort.
