ABOUT

Master distraction is an advanced level course with a maximum of six students. The students will learn how to overcome common distractions and phobias in order to gain focus. We will learn the same techniques used by animal actors in film and TV. The categories of distraction includes: touch, sight, sound, smell and movement. We will be using props such as brooms, umbrellas, balloons, saws, leaf blowers, metal shakers ,whistles, door bells, flashing lights, canes/walkers/strollers, skateboards and bicycles. Suggestions for other distractions are welcome. Food motivation will be used for this class but we will also learn how to overcome distraction without the use of food. 
 

WHAT TO BRING

Six foot leash (non-stretchy and non retractable), flat collar or correction collar, phone book wrapped in duct tape (to teach "place"), clicker,  quick-draw treat bag, LOTS and LOTS of small sized treats and VERY HUNGRY dogs! (We will be treating these dogs for almost the entire hour). 
 

REQUIREMENTS

For this course we are not accepting dogs that are dog-aggressive. If your dog has aggression issues we suggest you take our Street Obedience course or Heeling Workshop first. Dogs must be able to "sit" and "down".
