"Look at Me"

"Look at Me"

Three very valuable words when training a dog. 

 They come in very handy for a number of circumstances.  Such as if you are walking a dog that tends to pull.  It's hard to pull if said dog is turning around to look at you. 

 And if looking at you is rewarded with a treat, the dog even moves back toward you when it hears the command. 

 It's also an excellent tool to prevent a fearful or aggressive dog from becoming over-excited when encountering another animal while on a walk. 

Think about all the ways that having your dog turn and look at you might help you to gain more control.  

I snapped all of these pictures while Cisco and I were out for a walk the other day.

It is really nice having your dog focused on you when out for a stroll!
