If you are designing a class to empower your students or working to overcoming challenges with your own dog, successful training is entirely dependent upon holding the dog’s focus. How can we help each dog owner to become the most important object to their dog? Susan Garrett promotes raising dogs in “Do-Land”: a place where dog training solutions are founded in reinforcement -- not punishment. Rather than teaching the dog what not to do: don’t move, don’t pull, and don’t sniff the ground. We will discuss how to inspire the dog to want to hold his sit, to want to walk at your side, to want to work with you and to have eyes only for the work, not distractions.
