Dog Training, teaching your dog to ‘Watch’ or ‘Look’

Teaching the command ‘Watch’ or ‘Look’ to gain your dogs attention!
Get your dog in front of you, either sitting or standing and say their name sharply in a commanding but friendly tone. Immediately offer a treat or fun toy! Do this once or twice.
Then the third time, bring the treat/toy up quickly, just in front of your own nose, tell your dog to “Watch/Look” as soon as they look at you (their eyes will be following the movement of the treat) and give a “Good dog” and the treat/toy.
Add the movement of your hand with the treat - back to your dogs face and up to your nose.
After a few repetitions, alternate the command without the treat. Your dog will get so that they watch the movement of your hand regardless of whether you have a treat, Selina McIntyre, Dog Behavioural Consultant, Dogs Best Friend.
