Distraction Training Tip: Condition distractions as reassurance markers to keep working to get rewarded. This eliminates stress or unsureness by creating distractions as something positive versus having the dog worried about corrections when there’s something new in the environment. For example, all the things in BH temperament test routine, teach them bicycle drive-by = food/ball. ? Also remember to not constantly use them, as they become a help to the dog ie. fussing with the tug dangling on the outside of their head. They have to learn to work with no distractions too.
