Why should you train remote reinforcement with your dog?
Treats and toys are not permitted in the competition ring and many dog / handler teams find the transition from training to competition difficult for this reason. The lack of reinforcement in the competition ring often results in dogs that are unmotivated and disconnected.
Remote Reinforcement is the process of maintaining your dog’s motivation and focus while distancing and deferring rewards.
