This purpose of this seminar is to teach dogs to focus on their handlers in high distraction environments. These exercises are perfect for the competition dog/handler team. We will begin by reviewing the “Click to Calm” methodology (the presence of the distraction IS the cue to look at the handler) as well as work on necessary Foundation Behaviors such as the Back Up Sit, CTC without eye contact from the handler (multi-tasking), Get Behind, and Reorienting. Novel Stimulus will also be introduced and added to the exercises for complexity. Control Unleashed exercises will also be added in: Parallel Jumping/Heeling, Car Crash Game and the “Dog In The Face.” All of these are fun games geared towards teaching specific skills such as acclimating dogs to the movement of other dogs and people, navigating small spaces in public areas safely and teaching dogs to better tolerate the situation where dogs “meet” head to head.
