Lunas Dog Training Plan
1hr additional outside time per day
20 ft leash
Loose Leash Walking/ Pulling
Tired (plenty of mental and physical stimulation)
Outside long enough to the point of laying down is best!
Fetch! Best way to burn mental and physical energy
Long lead, interesting toy. use lead to guide dog back to you or run and make him chase you to encourage return
Needs to know name means eye contact (clicker)
run backwards infront of your dog in face of distraction
uses energy, fun for dog, more fun than distraction, good way to get dog used to looking at you
Ask for attention in doorway, distanced from distraction
Click every time dog looks at you while walking
Click every few seconds when luna is in correct position
Do not pull on leash-that is teaching your dog to pull too. Instead, be patient and call their name for them to come to you willingly. If unable to do this, start in the doorway.
Start indoor, least distracting environment.
Do not advance AT ALL if there is tension on the leash. Instead
Whenever you change enviorments or add distraction you are likely to have a relapse. This is normal! Do not be discouraged and take a step back to start at a level which they can be successful
