Focus is one of the biggest keys to getting your dog to do what you want.
I see so many people struggle to get focus from their dogs. They are connected at the leash but their is no emotional bond. If the leash was dropped the dog would take off.
You can force focus. You can demand focus. But this is illusory.
Think about things your dog focuses on. Animals, their food bowls, strangers, scents.
Did these things demand and command our dogs "respect" is the food bowl your dogs alpha?? 🙄
Our dogs are not stubborn, they are opportunist. They do what works for them. Many of us want to be our dogs "Leaders" but the work we put into our relationship with our pups is not worth a follow 🤷🏻♂️
