Does thinking about creating your training plan have broken you down and giving up?
Do you often take the approach of let's try it and see what happens?
Are you and/or your dog frustrated for not hitting your previous goals?
First, what is a S.M.A.R.T Goal
Here is a deeper look at potential goal that I have for Azul.
- Take longline sniff-a-bouts on our property and in lower distraction areas at least 3 times a week to practice in real life situations safely while practicing various directional cues; far enough, this way, & yoohoo Zuly.
- Provide social opportunities for Azul 1-2 times a week in secured areas where he can safely run with friends.
- Practice a more formal style recall at home and in public spaces where it is safe to add to the reinforcement history when it is easy for Azul to succeed.
