A New Obedience Game

The game I'm simply going to call the sit-down-stand game. I'm sure I'm probably not the first one to try this, but I'm going to start Tucker with just sit and stand because he knows both. I'll give him the sit command, say "good" (his marker), reward him and release him with the word "break."

Consistency is The Key to Training Success

When I remember to make them sit at each door they get better at figuring out that that's what they need to do. If I forget to make them sit at the door, they get confused. I'm figuring out that the more consistent I am the more clear they are on what they need to do to get their reinforcement, which is to be allowed to go through the door.
