Contact nancy haupt canine refuge regional worked great It's footprints decided to click if she would look at me. She's Affenpinscher, a little terrier who loves to sniff the ground, looking up is a vital skill if I ever want to teach her how to heel. She's wearing a soft buckle collar, and I'm using a soft lightline. You could use a regular leash. I use no verbal chatter for this introduction. When she looks up, I click, then treat. By the second click, she was running to me to receive her treat. I treat her when she is at left side, not sitting yet. Once she's at left side, and has received her treat, we start to walk. When her attention wanders into sniffing, I stand still, just watch her with peripheral vision. When she looks up, I click, she runs to receive treat, we walk on together. I introduce changes of direction. By the second day, we were doing attention work first the back yard and then on the front sidewalk, for 25 feet or amid distractions. Each session lasted about five minutes. Dog becomes more attentive. Remember to stop and stand still when dog's attention wanders; and remember to click each time dog looks up at you, give a reward for each click, and remember to change direction. Your changing direction encourage your dog to become more attentive. For teaching your dog's name: the techniques you'll use vary according to the circumstances, whether you just got a new dog or have had your dog for a while. Does your dog know Sit? Do you have your dog sit before you put down its food bowl? If say sit. Use the name front of the command word. Do not over-use the dog's name. Avoid the dog's name conversations with people. Otherwise the dog hear its name often that it learn not to pay attention when it hears its name. You can say to other members of the family, Did you play with the dog today? Or Did you put fresh water the dog's bowl when you came home from school? I hope this helps. Attention and name-recognition are two different things, but I understand that you want your dog's attention when you call its name. Please be patient, and remember that dogs do not learn by hearing commands shouted at them. First, to help the dog learn, we must teach it. Then we repeat the teaching that the dog makes associations its mind. Only much later do we add the cue for that skill. The reason for this delay adding the cue is that we want to help the dog have successful experiences at each skill level, rather than to fail. Clicker-training is a scientific means to help the dog learn by engaging its brain. It is very different from force-training. If you need to find clickers, books and videos on clicker training, then I suggest the Direct Books Service web site: http: Good luck to you.
