Part 2 No Basic Sit
Part 2 – No Basic Sit
Second session. Still working on Basic Obedience. Tobias tries to add a Bark and Hold but the dog is unable to sit for 5 seconds. The reason we always ask for 5 seconds pause between the beginning and the end of the exercises is to break Classical Conditioning and not create a Behavior Chain. The moment Tobias takes the sleeve – the dog starts barking in anticipation. The point of these two videos:
- Do not do anything without clear communication with the dog. You have to give your dog heads up about what is coming.
- Stop the behavior by using Negative Marker and providing a consequence.
- Do not rush the process and get enough reps for the dog to understand the behavior.
- Do not proceed to the higher level of training if your dog has no Basic Obedience.
