Invest in your training foundation by working through FOCUS exercises, and the payoff will be huge. Everything else will be so much easier. The FOCUS program can be tailored to your individual training needs, whether your dog is out of control or is not having enough fun during training.

The Newest In Focus DVD, Beginning Obstacles Skills, is now available from Clean Run Productions.

In this DVD, Deborah Jones, Ph.D., and Judy Keller demonstrate the application of their FOCUS program while introducing a puppy or a "green" dog to agility obstacles. The ultimate goal of focused obstacle training is to help your dog develop a clear understanding of how to negotiate each obstacle fluently and consistently on a single cue. We want the dog to display confident and independent obstacle skills. We accomplish this by training for understanding and enjoyment at each stage before adding further challenges.

The program is divided into three sections. First you will work on your basic training skills such as getting behaviors to happen and shaping behaviors. Next you will work on basic behaviors and exercises that lay the groundwork for future obstacle performance. These foundation skills are designed to increase your dog's confidence, curiosity, boldness, and body awareness. Finally, you will work through the initial stages of training the tunnel, chute, tire, contact obstacles, and weave poles.

This DVD will not take you through to the finished product; rather, it will prepare you and your dog for more advanced obstacle training. If you follow the ideas and suggestions presented here, your dog will have a solid foundation for the challenges that lie ahead in agility training and trialing. Your dog will learn to love the agility obstacles, not just tolerate them. He will learn to have fun and stay focused while he works with you because he wants to, not because he has to.

The second DVD in the series, Crying for Control, addresses the issues and challenges of having a dog that needs extra emphasis on control work. Without using physical force or punishment, focus techniques will teach your dog to become a more cooperative working partner.

The third DVD in the series, Need for Speed, addresses dogs that need more enthusiasm and motivation to perform well. These types of dogs are often sensitive and more cautious; which can lead to fear and avoidance when they are put under even mild pressure. The key to training and showing these types of dogs is to make it more fun. When dogs are having fun they are not stressed and worried. The exercises and ideas in this DVD will lead to a more confident and enthusiastic dog.
