WRAP AROUND

Teaching your dog to run out and around an object before returning is a great way to build confidence and add an extra level of fun to your walks.

To start, set out an object in your home or garden. Walk towards it with your dog before using a lure or target to guide them around. Mark as they reach the far side of the object before moving backwards and rewarding your dog in front of you.

Practice until you can reduce the signal you give your dog to get them to move around the object. As your gesture becomes less exaggerated you can also start to signal from a greater distance away.

You can even develop a different cue for each direction so that your dog will be able to move in a clockwise or anticlockwise fashion depending on the signal you give.

When your dog is really good at this, start to take it out on your walks and use objects in the environment.
