K9: The initial decision to look at you must be the dogs... After the dog has worked out that you can help it achieve the food (drive satisfaction) then you train the attention using a word...

Here is photo of my pupp

Imagine the toy is food and the dog is tied up. It has to look at you, when it does you unclip the lead and say ok.

I think you are being a little harsh on yourself Myszka....Your not stupid at all

And besdies, can we all really be as good as K9? Do you really think there is enough room in here for all our heads :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Honestly though, I'm sure many people will agree, he is one of a kind :thumbsup: I guess all we can do is aspire to be like him with our own dogs.........

No - hence I shouldnt stick my head into something I have only a vague idea about.

I have learnt one valuable lesson since beginning training. Have confidence in youself when training your dog.

If not the dog will sense your lack of confidence and act accordingly.

Works for me! :thumbsup:

Alrighty, I've started trying Jack on the TOT program but it's bl00dy cold in Canberra to be outside in the frost waiting while he drools! Guess I'll just have to rug up. And take a stick to break off the drool icycles. :thumbsup:

He responded really well straight away. No whining while on the tie-out, even though he does whine when back-tied at sheepherding or waiting at a cafe. And he offered constant eye contact the moment I put the food bowl a few metres in front of him, until the verbal release.

So we'll start working on extending the duration. Time before distance before distraction, right? I want to get him out of the habit of whining, so we'll keep working on that.

I have one question, though. Instead of using the marker word 'yes', I've been using a clicker. And saying our standard release word 'free' instead of 'OK'.

Is that all right? Or is it better to use the verbal marker 'yes' in case I lose all five of my clickers :thumbsup: or want to use this program when I'm out and about without a clicker?

K9: remember that there is no reason this cant be done inside, provided you want you dog fed inside...

K9: correct...

K9: thats fine, this will indeed charge the clicker, but remember you will then always need it to mark the correct behaviour..

Even dumber question. Where will this take us?

better/longer sit stays?

Xena seems to be coping with this quite well. I can tie her out, walk away ( I got distracted by neighbours last weekend and left her for 10 minutes). She puts up with other dog wandering about.

What are the other benefits?

Thanks, K9. I'm not keen on the "number 11s" (aka drool) all over the laundry floor! So we'll stick with the cold. I'm just learning from my dog and having a whinge.

K9: thats fine, this will indeed charge the clicker, but remember you will then always need it to mark the correct behaviour..

Cool. We'll stick with it then, because I always have a clicker with me when training, walking etc. He knows exactly what the clicker is all about!

Thanks for your help :thumbsup:
