Episode 3 – The Bucket Game with Dearing English

the bucket game explained

The Bucket Game is centered around giving your dog a choice to cooperate or walk away. At any point, they can walk away and remove themselves from anything uncomfortable. By giving them this choice, you give them control over what is done to their body. A dog that volunteers to participate will be a much better patient and will be less stressed than one that is forced to hold still with physical restraints. The Bucket Game can be used in other training scenarios which we also discuss in the podcast.
