Start every training session by getting your dog’s attention.  There is no point spending time training your dog if he is not focussed on you.  The “WATCH ME” exercise is a great way to get your dog’s attention.  To do this you will need a high value food reward like sausage, cheese or chicken etc. or your dog’s favourite toy.

  • Hold the food/toy close to your dog’s nose then move it up to your eye area. 

  • When your dog gives you eye contact, say the words “WATCH ME” and reward with the treat/toy.

  • You can progress this exercise by holding eye contact longer before you reward your dog.
