When we think about teaching service dogs to work and focus around distractions, we think of it as three separate things.

1. Their ability to be calm around distractions.
2. Their self control around distractions.
3. Their ability to focus on your around distractions.

This video is all about teaching service dogs to be calm around distractions. In the next video we’ll talk engagement, what most people think of as focus, around distractions.

 

Happy Training!
