Re: jargon – fluency etc.


hehe – i aim for perfection  ;D but it depends on the behaviour being asked and how difficult it is for the dog and what the criteria is – so for example with a dog that is showing keeness to learn once i get 8/10 fluent say on a sit that is 90% reliable and 90% no hesitation then i would move it up but i wouldnt with a recall with a collie or a gundog – i might settle for 8/10 fluency and 80% no hesitation –  but would want 100% reliable before risking the bunnies ;D

with amilou at criteria 5 5+ 5++ 5+++ it had to be 10/10 and 100% all the way and we still managed extinction bursts ::)
puppy from hell >:D
