What is Focus Work?

Developing Trained Focus

CREATING VALUE ON THE OWNER, WHICH IS OFTEN OVERLOOKED

If you have a dog who works well at home but you struggle to maintain that connection in public?

If you struggle to keep and maintain your dog’s focus during training or in public?

You know you have been consistent in training and your dog knows all of the work, but he can’t seem to focus or stay engaged?

Play and training are two main components in dog training that have been underestimated

It is essential, in order to have a happy and well-behaved dog. But most important of all, by playing with and exercising with your dog, the VALUE becomes You!

How You ask?

By providing your dog access to fun. when you become the source of the play, your dog likes you more, pays you more attention and you have more control over other situations that have nothing to do with play. Teaching you the Foundation to understanding and developing trained Focus, which is, the process of teaching one’s dog to seek out for a chance to work.

This class WILL keep your dog connected with YOU!
