Puppy Focus and Self-Control

About the Course

Is your puppy calm, focused, and have self control?  If not, it’s okay, you have a perfectly normal puppy!  Would you like to teach these concepts to your puppy in a fun and game filled environment?  Yes, by playing games we can begin instilling the concepts of calm, focus, and self-control at an early age that will help your puppy for the rest of their lives!   Below is an example of a game played in class:

Boil & Simmer – using quick bursts of high energy and lower energy helps dogs develop an on/off switch

Begin with being calm with your dog, calm voice, gentle petting

Bring out a toy and play with them, get them revved up to a boil

Stop moving and go back to calm movement, calm voice, bringing them back to a simmer

Repeat, switching being high energy & low energy, keep each step of the game very short

When finished, end with a simmer session, but let your dog keep the toy until they stop playing with it on their own

Once they’ve stopped playing, pick the toy up and end the game
