I am starting with the best and most important content. If you take nothing else from this course but this, you will be 75% of the way there. This is the secret to how my dogs like Gage which some of you may have seen on my channel or in real life perform the way he does. This is the secret to why my dogs do not pay attention to ANYTHING else other then me when its work time.
Power Obedience is training your dog to perform commands at the highest level of motivation and arousal. This system is designed specifically for competition obedience and is the system Haz uses to train his personal dogs.
When applied correctly, the Power Obedience system generates a dog that performs obedience at peak levels of speed, focus and arousal. Imagine a dog that simply ignores competing motivators like other dogs, people, decoys, new environments etc. and gives you his 100% commitment in every aspect of the tasks you ask him to perform.
There are many ways to train things like a heel, down in motion, dumbbell retrieve etc. In the end, most people focus on the mechanics of the individual exercises while neglecting the true source of what makes the dog look exceptional within the performance of said exercises. The state or arousal, emotion the dog is in while preforming ANY behaviour will directly impact the expression of said behavior.
That means if you can control how your dog feels, if you can get his engine tuned and running at peak performance for a set period of time, have a key that STARTS and STOPS that engine you can ensure that he gives his ALL in every exercise.
Those of you who have dogs that struggle with distractions understand this. The only reason distractions are an issue is because your dog VALUES other things more then YOU. Now we change that paradigm and show the dog nothing is more interesting, fun, arousing and engaging then YOU.
Contemplate a dog that demands you do obedience with him, that pushes you with all his heart and soul to perform every command. That is power obedience.
