Adolescent & young adult dogs often struggle most with distractions that are beyond our control. This can be other people and/or dogs we meet while out on a walk, wild animals or pets that pop up unexpectedly, or any of a million other things that our dogs might react to. However this is NOT the place we want to start with training sessions.
If you want to help your dog succeed around distractions, you first have to teach them the skills to succeed in a no or low distraction environment. All training should start at home! There are a ton of games you can play to help teach your dog the skills they need to succeed while increasing your skills as a team. We are going to be going over lots of these games in the FAD2 Mini-workshop!
The FAD2 Workshop will take place March 22nd - 25th!
An email will go out every morning at 8am for those subscribed to the email list AND a FB Event post will be added to the event every day at the same time for those who prefer the FB Format.
The info will be the same in both places so you only need to follow one of them.
Discussion on the Topic of the Day can be done on the FAD Discussion Group and we will be hosting a live Q&A each evening. Check out the FB Group to see the time for the Q&A Live each day.
