Is your dog reactive or distracted by things in the environment? You NEED to watch this video!
In this video I show you the engage/disengage game. This game was developed to help fearful, anxious, or reactive dogs feel more comfortable around their triggers.
However, I love this game for all dogs!
It works great for teaching your dog that distractions are a cue to engage with you and look at the handler. Basically, your dog sees a distraction (like another dog or human) and immediately looks up, laser focused on you. And who doesn't want that?
I love this game for both pet, and service dogs. It's a must-train exercise that can literally be life-changing.
Happy Training Ya'll!
