What's The Point of Teaching Focus?

This week, Jess and Scott discuss the concept of eye contact. While getting and maintaining your dog’s attention is definitely an integral part of successful dog training, attention games are often misused in real world settings and this episode dissects exactly that.

Topics Discussed:

  • Where in training does it actually make sense to teach your dog to focus on you?
  • Is teaching focus really necessary for an engaged dog?
  • How can asking for focus sometimes escalate fear or reactivity?
