Counting games are so much fun for your dog!
They provide a predictable patterns and can easily help your dog make her way back to you.
Counting establishes a clear path back to you and encourages engagement with you while you are in a more distracting environment.
Counting also takes the pressure off of you and your dog.
It eliminates the expectation that your dog should “listen” to your cue.
Instead, it provides encouragement and motivation for your dog to return, especially when there are increasing levels of distraction in the environment.
This is especially important if you haven’t proofed your recall cue and you are wanting your dog to return to you.
This is the first introduction of Chirag Patel’s counting game when Zelda moved away and became distracted in the environment.
This opportunity was naturally occurring and my client’s daughter was a fast learner in implementing the steps as I was coaching her in real time for the first time.
Making coming back to you so worthwhile will for sure set you and your dog up for success in a stress less learning environment while also being fun and enjoyable for you and your dog.
