My Top 5 Games

Each of the daily 25 training games are super fun, positive and more importantly, get real life results! Here are my top 5 games from this challenge that I love playing with my Chihuahua, Pixel and my Working Cocker Spaniel puppy, Rocket.

This is a way of life and having such a small dog this has been life changing! Pixel used to be extremely fussy and turn her nose up at food. She just didn’t find it rewarding.

Ditching the bowl changed that. She will chase and catch the food and it becomes such a rewarding experience for us both. Now she loves to play the games. It also means I can use food as a reward for great choices and for playing the training games.

This works on recall, loose lead walking, relationship, focus and so much more! For such a simple easy game it really is fantastic! This has a fun chase element to it which both Pixel and Rocket love to do and also teaches them to come back to me each time.

These are simple easy games that your dogs know really well and absolutely love such as Middle or Front Paws. Played at home first then taken out and about these are vital for both Pixel and Rocket for different reasons. For Pixel they build confidence and optimism in new environments. With Rocket I use them to get focus when there are lots of distractions around.

Rocket LOVES this game and catching food is so much fun for him. This upward focus game is great as he catches food from my hands, he moves with me, connected and focused. I use this as an emergency loose lead walking when there is something particularly difficult in the  environment such as a cat!

This one is a must and I couldn’t have got great recall or loose lead walking without it! I play this with distractions in the distance so that they become a non-event. Rocket learns that birds, squirrels, joggers, cyclists and kids scooters are not something to chase and are none of his business.

    We had so much fun with this course! The training videos are easy to follow and all the training games can be played at home which is great. It has made a big difference to me and my dogs relationship, I am now more interesting than the birds, other dogs and all the distractions we see out and about. I would recommend this fun course to anyone with a dog no matter the age or breed!

    I am so pleased I joined this challenge. It is perfect lockdown training but also sets you up with a repertoire of games up your sleeve for when lockdown is over. The videos are easy to watch and follow and the games are explained clearly. They have enhanced the relationship with my dogs and have definitely made me sexier than that squirrel, or cat! The Facebook community that comes with the group is so supportive and gives you plenty of ideas and motivation. I feel sorry for anyone that hasn’t done the squirrel challenge… you’re missing out!
