Dog training, off leash training, and socializing in Madison, WI. A fully trained dog should listen both on and off leash. A dog with excellent training should listen even without their collar on. At Suburban K9, we believe in training for the real world. This means that we are always training around distractions. In this video, Kona and Hilo the labs are practicing their obedience around one of their favorite toys. You can see that they are not wearing their collars or leashes during this exercise.
Some people may think that using a dog’s favorite toy as a distraction is unfair, however, this is crucial in order to fully train a dog. We want our client’s dogs to be so well trained that they listen even if they see a toy bouncing across the street.
