Teaching a dog reactive dog to focus
We worked on teaching Seamus a proper heel and to stay focused on his owners while out for a walk. Here he is in lesson 3 and doing great. We wanted to push the boundaries so rather than go for a walk around their neighbourhood we went to a busy park with a dog run located in the middle of it in order to challenge Seamus some more and to be able to teach his onwers the finer points about how to handle Seamus in more challenging situations.

Cisco’s owner’s started his training with me when he was 10 weeks old and enrolled in the in home Puppy Pre School program In that 2 week program we focused on house rules and manners as well as some light obedienbce.
