The Advanced package is for pups and dogs that have are generally responsive but lose their focus when in overstimulating environments such as dog parks.
We teach this class in public environments such as in parks. We always want to set the dog and the client up for a win. Recognising at what point we lose the dog’s attention is important. Working with the dog with just enough distraction to grab its attention, but not too much that we lose them completely.
We will be teaching you what to look for in your dog’s body language, when and how to communicate with them how to convince your dog that listening to you is the most rewarding part of being outdoors.
Session 1 – in a public setting – we want no/limited distractions – using a 10m leash if needed
- Arriving at the park calmly/getting out of the car
- Leash handling – before letting them off leash
- Holding the dog’s attention before letting them off leash
- Holding the dog’ attention as you begin to walk
- Building an association of the environment built on responsiveness
- Why we keep arousal levels low in the park
Session 2 – in a public setting – with limited distractions
- Arrive and complete steps from session 1
- Send the dog to “go explore”.
- Practice regularly gaining the dogs attention before giving direction to ‘come’ back.
- Teaching the client at what point to gain the dogs attention, what the body language of the dog means and when to call the dog back.
Session 3 – in a public setting – with some distractions
- How to approach distractions when walking, such as a group of dogs in the park.
- How often to engage the dog and what to look for in their body language when they are distracted and when to engage them.
- How to end the walk calmly and happily for both the client and the dog.
