Up & Down

Scentventure Compass Point: Partnership

This one’s for when you need to let a distraction pass you.

  1. Drop a treat between your feet
  2. Your dog will put their nose down to find it
  3. Wait until your dog looks back up at you. Use your marker word e.g. ‘yes’/’good’ and drop another treat.
  4. Repeat, repeat, repeat. 

After a few repetitions your dog will get into the rhythm of looking up at you after they’ve eaten the treat to ask for another one. Meanwhile, the distraction passes you by.
