In Progress

Forging After the Turn

Many dogs forge while making the Right Turn. It has to do with too much motivation.
To remedy this, make a turn and immediately stop. Chances are, the dog will be far ahead of you.
Use your leash as a Negative Reinforcementto guide the dog back into the Basic Position.
Once he is in the correct place – stop the leash pressure, mark and reinforce.
With many repetitions, the dog will slow down and will stop forging.
After that, you will have to use your judgment whether to continue stopping or continue heeling. It has to do with what your dog needs – motivation or concentration.
