    I tried to teach my dog to touch, but all she is thinking about is the
    treat. please help. :(

    @mayamooncat I have tried to use both. Will both high value treats and
    treats she rarely gets ( cheese). All she will do is sit wait and then walk
    away, frustrated. Like i have tried targeting and luring, and even free
    shaping, but its like she had no idea what she did to get the treat.

    Hey Emily, What about a dog that is super distraced by OTHER dogs in an
    enviorment. My border collie is fine with other things but when it comes to
    other dogs being around she is SO set on them she will just stare..and
    watch. Even if I have treats. She is fine training at home but take her to
    a class and no focus on me. :( She knows so much..but No one sees that
    cause she does this.

    This is exactly what I need to work with my Dog on. Do you have a treat in
    your hand to keep the dogs attention like this?

    It’s all about variety. What you want is to teach the dog certain behavior
    independent from where you’ve trained. That’s why this video also notes
    that you shouldn’t make only clockwise turns, but also anti clockwise
    turns. When the dog understands the ‘trick’ practice at home, in the park,
    backyard. You don’t have to repeat the trick in every possible environment,
    but only in a few (2 to 4) several different environments. Limit the
    sessions to about 10-15 minutes..

    Look up kikopups tutorial on reactivity in dogs. I realize some of them are
    about barking and shyness, but the skills are transferable. Hope this helps!

    Do we have to play these games in every new environment to build attention
    or they will get the idea of giving attention to you is the best thing to
    do in all environments?

    Thanks Emily! 😀 Just got a new shelter pup this weekend and it’s a whole
    new ball game compared to Sparky, my goodness I have been finding myself
    pouring over your videos during every free moment I get! Love you! xx
