Demo – Can you Listen While I’m Moving

In this video I am moving in the opposite direction of where I am asking my dogs to go. This is not easy for the dogs as typically we are asking them to come TO us and be close to us and in this demo I am asking for something novel. Don’t worry if your dog takes a little bit to figure it out. Start slowly and work up. Next up for us will be things like asking my dogs for a down while I am moving in an upward position such as from sitting on the floor to standing up, or asking for behaviours while I am exercising.

Think of different, novel ways of moving yourself and asking for behaviours to really strengthen your dog’s ability to listen to you regardless of what you are doing.
