So after several days of “loading the clicker” (click-treat, wait a beat or two, click-treat, repeat 20 times) with the dogs, it’s time to work on name recognition. Yes, they all three know their names. But the problem is that they choose when to acknowledge their names.
Time for that to change.
From page 33 of Jane Killion’s WHEN PIGS FLY! TRAINING SUCCESS WITH IMPOSSIBLE DOGS: While the dog is looking at you, say his name, click and treat.
Will start this today and go for a week.
Goal? When I say their names they should look at me.
