Decreasing Difficulty


In our graphic from the first lesson in this section we noted:


You can decrease the difficulty of the dog’s task all the way until you get to only food engagement.


Food engagement is the easiest and most fun training activity so if you decrease the difficulty until you get to food engagement and your dog still won’t participate – it’s time to move to an easier location.
