In this video, Michael Ellis talks about the final steps to prepare your dog for its final performance/routine. It's common to reduce the amount of rewards a dog gets as the performance date approaches; however, that is a problem. When your dog goes into competition after training without rewards, they do not expect rewards, and tend to be less motivated. Michael Ellis explains different methods to prepare for competition and to keep your dogs motivation high.
