Open Mouth Training Challenge

Posted in Happy Handling

Well!  What strange times we live in!  But I don’t want to dwell that, I want to give you something to stretch your training skills and your dog’s mind.  Oh, and it just happens to be REALLY useful too.  Win-win!

Some time ago I taught Breezy how to open his mouth for examination.  It was a bit of a saga and I video’d the whole process.  Ryan Cartlidge from the Animal Training Academy asked me to write up the process as a guest blog for his site, so, rather than reinvent the wheel, here it is.

Why not give it a go?  And don’t for get to comment here on how it goes – I’d love to hear from you.

Happy training!
