Focus Outside the agility ring: Is it necessary?
Hello Everyone! Today’s question inquires about creating focus outside the agility ring.
First of all, is it necessary for your dog to pay 100% attention to you before you go into the ring?
For me, I approach this question by asking are you getting the results you want inside the ring? If you’re not, then this may be an area you want to adjust to help your dog start in the right mindset for success. If you not currently having any problems with your dog’s performance, however, there is no rule that your dog has to have absolute focus on you outside the ring.
In this video I share some ideas to help your dog focus more on you before you go into the ring in competition.
Until next time,
