My black lab, now 17 weeks has been a delight since we got her 3 weeks ago...she is undertaking crate training which is going great! She sleeps through the night and wakes up dry, her house training is excellent also. Her obedience training is going ok...she is very good in the house, but on walks we can't get her attention when she comes into contact with other dogs or other people. She walks well and with the distraction of a treat she sits at the side of the road before we cross but as soon as she sees another dog, that's all she concentrates on. My wife took her to a class last night and she was distracted 90% of the time...how do we train her to learn to respond to us with other distractions around her? We have started doing some obedience training in the garden, and this provides some distractions as there is birds and children playing in a nearby park which she can hear but not see. She can do everything asked of her in the house like I say, we want to transfer this into public space now. Any suggestions or thoughts? Thanks!
