Teaching Wini Focus
For the past few months I have been training Wini mostly in my basement, or anywhere indoors. I haven't taken her outside to do a whole lot of training, but she does go out on a daily basis for execise. I finally decided I could start taking her out to train, since the weathers getting better, and because she needs work on her recall outdoors.
But I noticed she gets so distracted! By grass, trees, logs, snow ect. Anything!! She is still a puppy though but she is totally ignoring me, she is a year old, which I consider a puppy still(:
I've been saying, "focus!" or, "watch me" and showing her a treat but its not working! In the house she is so different if I say come she runs to me, if I say sit she immedietly sits, but outside she is so like, "whatever, mom, the dirt is more interesting, I don't hear you." attidute. She won't even look at me, she just sniffs the ground, won't come, won't sit ect. And I know that butthead teenage stage should have wayyyyy past already. But ever since I got her she has been sick, now she is healthy and it seems like she is going through all the puppy stages now! Weird, I know. Maybe it's just me. Like the teenage stage. But how can I get her to focus? I read the "Teaching focus" thread but it didn't really help.
