– very motivating to encourage child to vocalise repetitive simple instructions to ‘train’ their pet. “Rex – SIT!”
– kid is also motivated to tell you what is happening – so use simple sentences like ‘doggy is eating’
– wholesome appealing fun for every age group
– best used at the point at which the child can intelligibly issue a command but needs encouragement to ‘use’ their language
– needs someone to support – a great bonding activity with an older sibling.
