My dogs will do almost anything for piece of toast — strange but true! Start Attention Training There are many ways to work on getting more attention from your dog. Get Rid Of Distractions You want to make this easy for your dog, so start in a quiet room in your home with no other people, pets, toys, food, etc. Image source: DavidFulmer via 1. You want to make sure you are the most exciting thing in that room! Any time he chooses to come walk next to you and give you attention looks at you , reward him! Meaning, as soon as you bring out a toy, your dog forgets you exists and all they want is for you to throw that toy. Squeaky ones, tug ones, fetch ones? If your dog is reacting to things in her environment instead of listening to you, you need to address those issues first, before you can expect undivided attention. For some dogs, toys are too exciting. Again, this teaches your dog that paying attention to you is a great thing! For those dogs, at the beginning you may have more luck using treats as rewards, since the toys may prove to be a distraction themselves.

Toy Switching — If you have a dog that loves to play with toys, bring several with you into your room and start to play with one. Sound familiar? When we are training our dogs, we are usually focused almost solely on getting them to do what we want. Then, discard that one by leaving it on the ground and start to play with another toy. If so, which foods in particular? The following are just a few tips to get you started: You want paying attention to you to be fun and exciting. To do this, offer your dog several things one at a time and see what he gets excited about the most: Does he get more excited about food? have you ever stopped long enough to think about what he would prefer to do, given a choice? This will cause your dog to lose focus and fail. You are trying to teach your dog to sit. You need to fix that before you can do anything else. Remember to pay attention to your dog and what she is trying to tell you. This makes you the bearer of good things! If your dog has stopped offering to look at you and is clearly engaged in something else, you may have added too many distractions — move away or remove the distractions until your dog can focus on you. Knowing what your dog values allows you to pick rewards with higher values when needed, helping to ensure success. Make sure you take play breaks and that you keep these training sessions short, say 10 minutes. A few final tips about attention training:• They get interested in smells, other animals, toys, people, food, etc. This starts to condition your dog that paying attention to you means good things. So switch it up if your dog starts to lose interest. Image source: RheaC via Toys — which toys? Start in your same quiet, no-distraction room and just walk in circles. Sitting still and paying unwavering attention to a human that is trying to get them to do something that they may or may not even like doing is definitely not natural. Almost all dogs are going to need to be taught how to pay attention — or, more accurately, you are going to condition your dog so that paying attention to you is more rewarding than anything else. Every time he does, give him a reward. Then, you can start the real training. Offering Attention — in your quiet room, sit or stand and just wait for your dog to look at you. You want to set him up for success.。 。 。 。 。 。
