Being brave training

Here’s some reminder notes:

Think of brining the object of distraction out and having it around every day. Expose your dog to the object before every feeding time.

Work on manipulating the three elements of distractions that make the distraction more or less severe:

  • Distance
  • Movement
  • Surprise

Be sure to follow a natural learning process. Start easy and let your dog adapt to incremental progressive challenge.

About the Author:

I’ve been training people and dogs in Seattle for the last decade and a half. My main focus when working with clients every week in one-on-one, private lessons is to help people learn to get their dogs to a functional level so that they can actually enjoy spending time every day with their dog instead of stressing about their dog’s behavior issues.
