You can set dog playpens and exercise pens in your garden, or the place where you are exercising. This will keep your pet engaged and they will also have fun in your presence.

2. Agility

It is the way of judging on how fast and quick movement you could make. You can set obstacles in the form of hurdles and cheer them while they pass all the hurdles. At first, they might be slow with the movement, but with time they will speed it up. Keep up your support, and they will surely make it! Along with this, they can also be trained on jumping, passing through tunnels, and move through the walkways.

If there is any special need for the dog, then you could modify them too.

3. Disc Dogs

This game involves three elements – dog, handler/owner, and the disc. The user has to throw the disc up in the air, and the dog has to catch the disc before it falls to the ground. The difficulty of the game depends on how the user is throwing the disc. There will be around 10 discs, and they are thrown turn by turn in different directions, with varying distances.

4. Dog Diving

It was initially known as the dock diving game, but now popular by the name Dog Diving. It involves the canines who are supposed to run the ramp along with the owner and take a dive into the pool to catch one toy thrown into the pool. Here the winner is the dog who dives in the furthest.

5. Football fans!

Dogs have this inherent quality of liking ball games. They love all ball games and are found to be pretty good and quick at judging too. So, you can dribble and have a passing practice along with your pet.

6 Secrets & Tips of all Successful Teams | Know what the Experts got to say

For a successful team, it takes a lot of things both as an individual player as well as a Team. You may be good as a player, but that’s not enough for the success of the entire group. Which are the strategies that you need to focus to build up a kick-ass team? That’s exactly what I will be going to discuss out in this post.

Number one, of course, will be the Coordination. For the coordination, there should be understanding and trust among the team members. This is the first thing that needs to be worked upon if your bunch is lagging behind on this.

Secrets & Tips of Successful Team

Secrets & Tips of all Successful Teams

Not all the players and members of the team are same. Some of them will have a positive outlook while there may be some toxic ones too. They may bring the whole group down and lower all the positivity. So, you should keep a check on all the players and correct whenever you feel the need to.

When I compared both the sports team with that of a corporate team, a lot many similar things popped up. You can apply the same concepts to the sports team, the ones applied to the corporate groups.

If you wish to improve the game for each individual, then first you have to consider the environment where the team is playing. The playing/practice place and their vibes affect the game largely. Build up the team culture first, and then focus on the game. What’s a team culture?

Individual Performance and Team Performance

  1. A culture is a term which shows a company’s or a team’s values, morals, and the objectives that they follow as an organization. The culture helps in understanding the works and the team more closely. We have never heard of an individual’s performance dipping due to another player. But yes, a good or bad team culture could affect individual game and performance. So, it is important the playing environment is friendly and happy – as this will keep the players motivated throughout the game.
  2. Secondly, the players should have the right amount of self-confidence in them. Because only then they could play in their best way.
  3. There is no point in having the skills if you are not using it in the right way. Just joining a team for the sake of playing is not enough, you must strive to make a real contribution to your team. That’s how team-building task is done together.
  4. Have respect for the game and your opponents. Yes, your opponents may be your enemies, but at the end, they are too human. A true sportsperson will have respect for all gaming individuals. Respect all the players and more importantly Respect the Game. To respect the game, you need to play a fair game, following all the game rules rightly. Helping Attitude
  5. Keep a helping attitude, this doesn’t mean that you need to help out each individual you come across during the game. But have this nature of helping others, in your possible way.
  6. The final thing which I feel we all still lack on is the Focus. Games like basketball, football, etc demand focus, and the players must have full concentration on the game.

There you go! If you got all these points checked for your team, well there won’t be anyone or anything that could stop your team from winning the game. Hope you all loved reading out this article, if yes – then do a follow on our page TrainWithTempo for further updates & tips.
