Train your pup with an AirTag: the genius trick for good recall

A fun and cffective way to train your pup

In today’s news we look at a new hack to help you humanely train your fury friends: If you’re a dog owner, you know that good recall is essential for a stress-free walk with your pup.

But what if we told you there’s a fun and effective way to train your pup using an AirTag?

This handy little device, which can be attached to your pup’s collar, has been hailed as a “genius” tool for dog training.

The AirTag is a small, coin-shaped tracking device developed by Apple Inc. It uses Bluetooth technology to communicate with nearby devices and help users locate lost or misplaced items.

The AirTag hack for good recall

In a now-viral TikTok video (see below), the owner of Bogey the puppy shared his “genius” trick for good recall.  By using the AirTag’s notification alert sound as a cue for a treat, Bogey quickly learned to associate the sound with a reward.

This is similar to training your dog to return to you at the sound of your voice or a specific command.

By attaching an AirTag to Bogey’s collar and conditioning him to associate the notification alert with a treat, the little golden retriever pup now comes running when he hears the sound.

Humane and more affordable than e-collars

But what makes the AirTag so special for training purposes?

Firstly, it has a range of up to 30 feet or nine metres, meaning you don’t have to rely on your voice or shout if your pup has run further away.

Additionally, the AirTag is relatively inexpensive compared to other training tools like e-collars, which can be bulky and expensive.

How to Train Your Pup Using an AirTag

Classical conditioning your pup to associate the AirTag alert with a treat appears to be easy.

Start by attaching an AirTag to your pup’s collar and giving it a distinct sound notification. When your pup comes running, reward it with a treat and praise.

Repeat this process until your pup associates the sound with a treat and comes running every time it hears it.

You’ll have a stress-free walk with your pup, knowing that you have a reliable recall tool. Plus, it’s a fun and interactive way to train your pup and strengthen your bond.

Try this hack for good recall today and see how it can transform your walks with your pup!
