This has taken MONTHS of rapid fire treats whenever we pass or approach another dog. Until the last few weeks Zac would reorient to me or recall away from dogs we had met before but not new dogs. Now he is starting to reorient to me when he sees some new dogs too, sometimes he will call away from them too. I'm so proud of him This morning he also called away from the scent of a deer that Gus had gone looking for (Gus sometimes thinks he is a lurcher but I think the deer must laugh at him as he is so slow). I saw the deer cross the path behind us but Zac was so focussed on the jackpot I was giving him that he never noticed. I'm under no illusions about how far we still have to go - Zac will be off hunting if he sees prey or if I don't keep him working 99.9% of the time - but if I keep him working he's coming on brilliantly. Ignoring other dogs is part of the journey, and for Zac it is a big step. The next stage is to get him to ignore the dogs he likes best - other lurchers and sight hounds. He finds these almost as distracting as prey.
