Attention Look at You Not the Food

When you are using food to train your dog, it is helpful to teach your dog that he should look at you and pay attention to you, not the food. Sit your dog in front of you, as in previous eye contact exercises. Have a piece of food in each hand, closed in a fist. Hold your fists at your sides. Your dog should know you have food in your hands. Give him a watch command. More than likely, he will stare at your hands and nudge at them with his nose. Ignore this. Keep giving him the watch command, softly calling his name or making funny noises. Hopefully, he will eventually glance at your face. When he does, give him one of the pieces of food in your hands. Repeat until he instantly looks at you and away from the food when he hears his name.
