ARC BY APPROACHING DISTRACTIONS

When you are walking your dog, there will be times you notice distractions approaching you head on. To set your dog up for success you will need to create enough space that your dog remains relaxed.

One way to do this is to walk in an arc past the person or approaching dog. To begin with you will need to make a wide arc but over time you will be able to lessen this as your dog is better able to focus around other people and dogs.

With enough practice you will be able to simply shift to one side of the pavement as you pass by with ease.

Not only is this helping your dog but it is also polite walking etiquette in populated areas where people and other dogs will be glad of the additional space.

Always remember to watch your dog’s body language and use this to gauge when your dog needs more space.
