Now available: Luring & Footwork Without a Dog with Michael Ellis self-study online course.
After engagement training, Luring is the first physical tool we use to manipulate our dogs when creating behaviors. Through luring we control the dog’s body by controlling their head.
When we train luring we teach our dog to push its nose into our lure hand and we expect them to follow the target hand wherever we move it. We also use luring when we teach the sit, down, raised bed, touch pads for jumps, the send away, head position while heeling and much more.
