Let’s wait with Distractions

This game is a continuation of last week’s exercise.

This week you should try to increase the distance between you and the mat or raised bed and test your puppy’s understanding of what you are asking it to do.

The first test is to see how far can you move away without your puppy leaving the mat?

The challenges for this week are done whilst you are at your furthest away from your puppy:

  • Can you move your feet around?
  • Can you move your arms up and down?
  • Can you turn through 360 degrees?
  • And finally, can you move away from your puppy whilst turning your back to it and not maintaining eye contact?

The aim is to achieve all of these without your puppy moving before you return and reward on the mat.
