Video: Austin Working Bo Under Voice Command Only
Austin is practicing working with Bo under voice command. This work is in anticipation of situations in public where Austin will need to have control over Bo without holding his leash. During a recent trip to Lowe's, Austin asked to work Bo using voice command only. I gave him the okay and followed behind the two of them as they navigated the aisles side-by-side. There were low distractions and Bo did an excellent job listening to Austin for most of their walk together. Food on the floor continues to be a very difficult distraction for Bo. In video below, you see it's a piece of food that distracted Bo from his focus on Austin.
