The dog is lagging because there is no consequence.
How to fix if the dog is lagging in the About Turn:
- First, we explain to the dog from where the reinforcement will be coming.
- Place him in the Basic Position.
- Have a ball under your arm.
- Drop the ball.
Then we will add Negative Reinforcement – pop the leash and drop the ball.
When making the turn, pop the leash and the dog will speed up in anticipation of the ball.
Randomise the reinforcement.
