Mastering Distractions When Heeling
December 30, 2019 | 7:00 pm EDT | $24.95
Heeling is complex enough! Add distractions and it’s an extremely challenging task for our dogs. It’s important to teach our dogs to have a positive relationship with distractions so they can be relaxed and confident in training and in the ring. In this webinar, I break distraction training down into small pieces so the dogs can be successful. Done correctly, ignoring distractions becomes a game. When dogs know how to win, it builds their ego and they become more confident and secure. Mastering distractions prepares dogs to successfully handle the demands of the ring. In this webinar, we will address environmental distractions, human distractions (judge and stewards) and barriers (ring gates, wall).
This webinar is presented by Petra Ford, a two-time National Obedience Champion and winner of the World Cup. More importantly, Petra is known for her dog’s style and animation in the ring. The connection she has with her dogs when training and trialing are her hallmark.
Webinars are, on average, 45 to 90 minutes long. All of Petra’s webinars contain video clips demonstrating the techniques discussed in the presentation. Webinars are available for purchase up until 1 hour prior to the Release Time. Webinars are pre-recorded, thereby greatly reducing potential audio and video technology issues.
