If your dog doesnt already know the value of eye contact with humans, you can easily teach her. This is an operant conditioning/positive reinforcement exercise your dog learns her behavior can make good stuff happen. When your dog has come to realize the value of eye contact, she will sometimes offer the behavior without being cued. Be sure to reinforce offered eye contact as well as cued eye contact. To help her be comfortable with eye contact from other humans, ask your friends to play the Watch game with her as well.
