6-Week Class

Connect and Engage with Games: Build Focus for Sport Dogs

Start Date: December 1, 2023
Registration Opens: November 22, 2023

Class Description

Having a dog that’s focused on you is essential in dog sports.  Yet, dogs often disengage from us.  In this class, you’ll find out why that happens and what to do about it.

When dogs disconnect, they take attention off the handler or the task and turns that attention toward other behaviors or distractions in the environment.  This could look like the dog sniffing on the ground, running to another person, scratching at the collar, getting the zoomies, or other behaviors not related to the task at hand.

Our goal should be to prevent this from happening as much as possible.

In order to prevent it, we need to know what’s causing your dog to disconnect.  During this class, you will learn a variety of games to help build your connection with your dog.  This class will help you understand why dogs disengage and what to do about it in the moment.

You’ll also learn how to make disconnection less likely to happy in the future through games and training.

If your dog is struggling with losing focus or disengaging, join me to connect and engage with your dog!
