“My Dog Won’t Listen to Me” – Building Focus & Attention For The Real World
Saturday, January 7, 2:00 – 4:00 PM ET
Let’s start with the good news. It’s easy to teach your dog focus and attention, and that’s the basis for teaching anything else. So, next time you think your dog is being stubborn, remember that the problem is probably “human error”. That’s the bad news.☹ Your dog may not understand what you want, especially in a new context; skills may not be reliable; you moved too quickly into a distracting environment; or reinforced the wrong behavior. Learn how to teach your dog attention and focus and see how much easier training your dog for the real world can be. Speaker: Lisa Lyle Waggoner, CPDT-KA, CSAT, PMCT2; Faculty, Victoria Stilwell Academy for Dog Training and Behavior; Author, “The Original Rocket Recall™: Teach Your Dog to Come”; Cold Nose College
