Game 2 –  1, 2, 3, treat!

For when you need to move past a distraction.

Start stationary. 

  • Count ‘one, two, three’ out loud and give a treat on ‘three’.
  • Repeat, repeat, repeat.
  • Once your dog starts looking at you on ‘one’, you’re ready to start walking. 

 Now add steps

  • Take 3 steps, counting out loud as you go. On the third step, give your dog a treat. 
  • Repeat, repeat, repeat. 

 What’s great is that ‘one’ becomes a predictor of ‘two’ becomes a predictor of ‘three’. Your dog will start anticipating the third step and focus on you from the moment you start counting.
