Step 3 – Increase the Distance
We are building distance between the Hander and the dog to multiple steps. Please remember to keep a balance between the focus on the Handler and focus on the ball on the ground. You can see Anna frequently sending Zack to the ball on the ground and get his drive up by kicking it.
Some dogs are more prey possessive than others. It all depends on the dog.
You can also use a retractable leash to make it easier to reach.
Always wait about five seconds before giving a command to break Classical Conditioning.
