Zeus and Tank scaled - Teaching a Pair of Dogs to Focus on Command to Reduce Dog Barking

For this Omaha dog training session we teach 2 year-old Rottweiler Tank (Pictured here on the left with his roomie, 12 year-old German Shepherd Zeus) to focus on command to help him listen better to his guardians and work on his eye contact dominance problem.

Many dogs fixate and focus on things that can get them into trouble. Training a dog to focus on someone on command is a great way to redirect their attention before they beocme too distracted or reactive. It is also a great way to help a dog stop acting aggressive when getting direct eye contact which is a problem for mnay dogs and may be the case with Tank.

You can learn how to teach a dog to focus on their human on command by watching the free positive dog training video below.

If the guardians practice this trick to get a dog’s attention every day for a week or two, they will have a powerful tool they can use to get Tank’s atttention before he gets a chance to bark at things he disagrees with. Fortunately, anyone can do this, you dont have to be a professional Rottweiler dog trainer. This is the beauty of the focus exercise, its easy and effective.

The guardians should also teach Zeus to focus on them as he is the agitator, barking at things which gets Tank all fired up. In fact, most of the things we covered in this session should be applied to both dogs.

We covered a number of other dog behavior tips in this in home Omaha dog training session. To help the family rememebr them all, we recorded a roadmap to success video that you can chck out below.
