Watch video: How to get your dog's attention outside
Having trouble getting your dog to pay attention to you is a very common problem. In this video, Animal Behaviour Specialist, Jez, shows us how we can tackle this using reward based training. The reward can be anything your dog finds appealing. Here Jez demonstrates the use of food treats.
He also explains how sound can be used to help to get your dog's attention. In fact, by pairing a sound with a treat, the sound can be used as a reward too so that food treats can be phased out. But, as he tells us, training isn't something to do once but can be a fun activity for the whole of your dog's life.
