'Not only is punishment risky, but it also fails to teach the dog an acceptable alternate behaviour. The dog does not learn what to do the next time he is in the same situation. He only learns to fear the situation.' Emma Parsons, Click to Calm p73

Tricky T-Day post.

It's been a while since we've done a tricky t-day post, but I'm looking to get back into it.

Right now, I'm teaching Lola "line up" - cue for a right finish. It'll be a handy cue to have to then send her off into other behaviours. I was starting to teach her to weave between my legs, but because she knows other behaviours around my legs ("circle", "peekaboo") she was defaulting to them a little too much. I'm hoping to teach her to "line up" so that I can release her into a weave/figure eight, and also as the beginning of a heel.

Stay tuned for more to come!
