Do you think? :-\ I’m a worried I’m going to confuse myself to insanity (which would’nt take much!!) :-[
OK well, I will look up clickering on here and see what I should do. It does sound that the training would seem easier with one but I’ve never used it before!
Emmy won’t know what hit her, what with whistles and clickers!!! 😀 😀
lol – Jayne!!
I’m sorry Bev!! :-\ 😀 I have now read the Stop and am abit more aware of what I’m supposed to do. I have never used a clicker ??? Do you think I should use a clicker for doing the stop? Would she understand it even though wwe’ve not used it?
I have just found the ‘STOP’ post so have printed it out! Her recall is good, I just think she is getting confused as we have never done this before and we have only just learnt recall on the whistle! information overload I think 😉
Yes, I have been doing that now! I was saying stop aswell as the visual. So do I not say anything and just do the visual? :-\
yeah I know what you mean, I have never done stop with Emmy, and trying to get her to do it (without the whistle) is a nightmare!! When I say stop, she comes in like a recall and stops in front of me!!!! 😀 Its so frustrating!! but we will keep at it!! ::) 😀
lol – Jayne!! I have just started whistle training with Emmy! It’s not going as bad as I thought! We started with recall and noy going on to anything else until she has got it!!
The basics are 3 for recall, 2 for sit and 1 for stop.
Good luck with it!!! 😉
Definately!! It’s a good job I didn’t want to show her! well, I know i couldn’t now she is speyed but many people have asked if I show her! Know all the crazy leg things to look for now 😉
OOh thanks Val! will do. Learnt quite alot from Dogsteps about the way Emmy stands. She stands well except found she has turny out toes :-[
I love bboks too! Have hundreds some I still havn’t got round to reading!! Got that Dog steps one now though thanks to you guys!!
Thanks Bev and Claire this has been such a help! I reckon Emmy should of had socialisation classes even though we did behavior training!! and now know that for future???!!!
But, I still have to rectify our problem and with all this help on here from you all I am most certain I shall crack it!! (fingers and toes crossed!!) 😉
It’s good to know I’m ot the only shameful one on here!!! 😀
Thanks for the advice, it’s realy helpful, I shall be walking her on lead for now until we can get her back in line!! 😉
when you say deny her the reward of the hunt, do you mean keep her on the lead and then tell her leave so she learns in that way?
ok, I get it now! 🙂 Emmy is a bully!
But how can I put this into practice with Emmy and another dog? ???
I’m confused ??? How would I get Emmy to leave if the other dog trys to sniff her and she doesn’t like it? or even to leave a dog full stop if she feels threatend by it?
I think I need to start at the beginning again 🙁
Double wow!!! well done Bonnie ;D
Is this the kind of thing I need to be doing with Emmy Bev? Not sure she could sit still while another dog sniffed her ???
