Scenario 1- you are out walking your pup

Scenario 1- you are out walking your pup, and across the street is another dog barking like crazy. What can you do to redirect your dogs attention?

Scenario 2 – A guest arrives at your home and your pup is super excited to see the person. You are afraid your dog will jump on your guest and embarrass you. What can you do to get your pups attention and calm her down a bit?

Answer – teach the touch (or target) command to redirect your pups attention. The touch command is a fun way to get your pets attention back on you and reward your pet for good behavior. Both my girls know this command and will even do it if there isn’t a treat around.

Check out the video to see how it work.
