Service Description

**IF YOUR DOG IS REACTIVE TOWARDS OTHER DOGS OR SHOWING NERVOUS OR ANXIOUS BEHAVIOUR THEN PLEASE CALL US BEFORE BOOKING AS THIS COURSE MAY NOT BE SUITABLE.** This course will initially take place in our training field and then we will go as a group to various locations with increasing levels of distractions. Does your dog only listen at home or training class and ignore you everywhere else? Do you find walks frustrating? Perhaps you dread going out in public because you think something will go wrong? Do you sometimes get home feeling defeated or embarrassed about your dog's behaviour when in public? Are you constantly tense when out and about with your dog, looking out for anything that might set them off? Would you love to be able to sit in a café, take your dog on holiday or enjoy a quiet drink with friends? If the answer to that is YES then you need DISTRACTED DOGS IN THE REAL WORLD! Getting your dog to come when called or to sit and stay quietly at home is easy, so why can't we do that away from the house? Doing so while out and about in a world full of distractions is another situation entirely. Most dogs can focus in environments they are familiar with, where distractions are limited or controlled, like at your house or in a training facility. But you can’t control distractions in the real world. Instead, we need to teach our dogs to relaxed, focus on you and ignore distractions, regardless of where you are or what is going on around you. The more likely explanation for your dog’s behaviour is that they’re overwhelmed by the environment just excited. This 6 week course will teach you and your dog how to: Focus in public Build distractions slowly Learn to relax at the restaurant, be calm at the café or patient at the pub Be an advocate for your nervous or over-excited dog Get your distracted dog's attention when out How to manage your environment and make good choices that set your dog up for success Reducing attention barking at you Reduce barking at people or dogs in public learning theory / Topics include: The Three D’s: Helping our distracted dogs and maintaining their attention Schedules of reinforcement; learn how often to reinforce your dog and work towards reducing the frequency of treats Dog barking at strange people and dogs approaching. Mat training Being indifferent/neutral to people and dogs
