distractions ? Mainly other dogs ? Have 2 males that lose it in the head in public when they see dogs. They hear the jingle of the dog tags & they both start to look, look, & start to get amped a bit. I say leave it & try to get them to look/watch me for treats.

Shadow the rescue is real bad, he has no control & gets so amped his focus goes right out the door. If he's on a flat collar, it's crazy as he's so strong. Does better with the pronge, but the whines & anxiety are nuts !

He wants to go at that other dog hard, but don't allow it because he is real pushy & little dogs I fear will be lunch.

I just have a hard time to get him to focus on me with food or toy when a dog comes into play.

Any suggestions ?????

Start off with fewer distractions. Have a friend or two meet you in a quieter area. Slowly work up towards the more distractions.

Once they LOOSE focus on you back away from the distractions until you gain their attention.
