MORE STUFF TO DO WITH YOUR DOG
(During Shelter in Place)
Here’s another example of something you can work on – that could end up saving your dog from harm!
Most dogs learn to respond to commands with you right in front of them, usually with a treat in your hand. But what happens when they are several feet away?
Typically, the only command people use with their dog from a distance is “come”. And if the dog is distracted, they ignore their human’s call.
The key is to practice ALL commands from a distance. As you can see from this video, I am working with Musik Ulbrich from a balcony above her.
The (Youtube) video below demonstrates how difficult it can be for dogs to listen once they are out of cookie range. Then it teaches you how to train them to listen at any distance. (The distance commands demonstration starts at about 50 secs in)
