|Driving to the show...|
Harlow is EXTREMELY friendly and is easily distracted by people she wants to make friends with, which is just about everyone. While she is getting better at practice, it really comes out in trials where she is seeing a lot of new faces. Here is the important part:
Harlow prefers people to treats and toys. Even if I have some tasty morsel or her favorite toy, she will always run over to people to make friends.
Any suggestions on how I can redirect her enthusiasm? She has a wonderful recall (except for in the ring) and just minutes before I went in with her we were practicing it. Everyone I ask starts with "take a treat" or "grab a toy", and that just won't work with her. Take a look at the video below - you'll see what I mean.
