FOCUS FOCUS FOCUS! What dog couldn’t improve their focus outdoors?

Here’s an easy dog training tip for you!

1. Take a handful of treats and your clicker (or you can use a verbal marker of “yes!”).

2. As soon as you get eye contact from your dog (even if it’s a very quick look) mark with a click (or the word yes) and throw the treat away from you.

3. Watch for another look and repeat.

Do this exercise outdoors once a day for two weeks and you will be well on your way to a more focused dog. Happy Training!

    Great advice! I’ve been practising this with Bonnie as I realised recently that I always called her name when on a walk to get focus and reward her, rather than just waiting it out for her to offer it. Now she offers it much more willingly and I don’t have to “nag” her as much to get her focus 🙂
