Roxie needs to be amped up a lot before a run. A lot of time amping her up with toys and treats get her to understand that by paying attention to ME, and playing with ME will get her reward in either play or treats. That, for me, helps her focus more on me and less on what is going on around us at trials. At this point in trialing (we have only done 2 trials) I have to do whatever I can to get her to stay focused on me and not on what is going on around her.
