Work Around Distractions

It's common for your dog to be more distracted when you're practicing commands in public. Don't be discouraged or get frustrated. Your dog will sense this and will be less likely to cooperate. Instead, set up situations to teach him to focus on you even more. Practice these exercises on a short leash; if you anticipate his impulses will triumph, let him drag his leash so you're able to interfere if he gets too distracted. Repeat the exercises below until your dog focuses on you above all else.
