Confidence building around distractions with Zoe the Great Dane mix

Zoe the Great Dane mix and distraction training. Zoe used to react fearfully around various distractions and she would run away from them. Things like vacuum cleaners, trash bags, strangers, various noises would make her act timid. At FINE-TUNED CANINES Board and Train dog training program in Naples, FL, Zoe built her confidence level and social skills. She also learned self-control and obedience skills around various challanges and distractions.

Real life distraction training (with Board and Train canine student)

Brodie, the Board and Train canine student, used to pull on a leash and was difficult to control. Here, after working with Lexi and FINE-TUNED CANINES, Brodie walks nicely on a loose leash and remains focused on the trainer even though there are plenty of distractions present. GOOD dog Brodie! You are a FINE-TUNED CANINE! :)
