Me again – dog with a bone ;D
All sounds good – yes Bev sees a lot more than any of us ever see. She speaks Dog ;D
So what do you want to achieve?
You want harmony in the household yes 😉 so tell us how you gonna achieve it ;D That will be your step by step plan. i.e. 1st week I am going to reinforce bla bla –
Criteria – is when they are 100% fluent in something – like sitting every single time when asked in the house, every single time in garden, every single time in someone else house – all different criteria – will be 101 posts about it on training. Type in criteria in search
Oscar is a lot older than Juno he is an adult dog – she is a pupster. That doesnt mean Oscar will be easier to train than Juno or vice versa – depends on what Oscar already knows and what evil sneaky stuff he will teach Juno >:D
Eventually they will realise because they dont have time to think about it they are much happier when you are leading the way – less stressed – less emotional.
They are not the easiest of breeds but they are very rewarding.
So what are you training them at the moment – how do you decide what to do – that is your step by step – you must have in your head at least some sort of plan ???
So eg. take 4 paws, how fluent is it ? what % at what criteria. i.e. does he do it 100% of the time and where, inside house, garden, at park, on street – easy to get stuff fluent in house but outside where there are smells, scents, doggies, people, traffic, whole different ball game ;D
I love this stuff 😀
