Why can obedience classes cause your dog to be a less reliable alerter?

Anya from Oregon has our question of the week. Anya has question EVERYONE who trains their own POTS Alert Dog or Medical Alert Dog has, should you obedience train your dog prior to taking medical alert dog classes. This is an important question because the order in which you train can have a significant effect on whether your dog will easily learn medical alert dog training or struggle, become frustrated and/or fail in being able to learn the difficult concepts that are instrumental in training a medical alert dog. See what our answer is in this weeks Medical Alert Dog Monday.

So what do you think my answer? Do you think its easier to train a highly obedience trained dog for medical alert or start off your dogs training with medical alert first and then work on its obedience? If so, please leave a comment below.
