“free shape nose to mat to fluency do not add any cue yet”
Does this mean when nose touches mat click and reward?
yes – if dog not ever so experienced at free shaping then you may have to do the click/reward for looking – then no click reward for that but for moving towards it then no click reward for that until touching.
fluency is when he automatically walks up andnose touches 15 times in a row without hesitation.
think break is exactly that – lid on treat box – clicker in pocket – mats off the floor – about 3 -5 mins
