In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discusses:
- Remediation through focus drills.
- Training door poppers with high communication and understanding.
- Patient handling to improve focus and targeting.
- Training in different conditions, such as night and day, and with different variables.
- Dogs have a wide field of vision. It is possible that the first thing your dog sees may be the first thing they fixate on.
- Your dog is not going to learn every single thing they need to learn in a basic training class. You will likely need to continue training things with your dog after to strengthen your dog’s skills.
- Target lock is a key to creating the understanding and communication with your dog on where they need to go.
- The key to focus drills is lots of repetition.
“Everything about success in engagements is making sure our dog knows where we want him to go. If your dog doesn’t understand where to go, the likelihood of him engaging goes down dramatically.” — Jerry Bradshaw
