These exercises are performed entirely with luring. Verbal cues are not a necessity. The lure is the cue. Our focus with these exercises is on developing muscles, strength & body awareness needed to perform a desired movement and/or maintain a position.
If luring & treat zen skills are weak you’ll want to strengthen those first.
CAUTION FOR ALL STRETCHES: Move your food lure with SLOW, CONTROLLED movement so your dog moves similarly. Begin with a small stretch, build gradually over many sessions. Do not overdo.
