    I Disagree. When you stop a dog and cast on a blind the dog must change destination. This drill is very effective for that. Why else blow your whistle after dog doing cold blinds except to change...

    Well so far after two days, the OP has not responded to anything so we really don't know. The assumption of course was FF and CC. AS IN REINFORCE!

    Just to clarify: It's important to realize that what we are really talking about here is the dog learning to avoid the pressure by behaving a certain way. He then "escapes" the pressure as you and...

    In brief, it is very common! A classic example is in Force Fetch. Many do this by commanding "fetch" and pinching the ear(or toe hitch or e-collar). When the dog opens it's mouth and the bumper is...

    I would guess that the dog mostly has an issue with looking out where he has got in trouble. If the dog bugs on fetch or walking fetch, then the problem is more deep-rooted although the cause is...

    Sharon,
    The technique you describe- stop or retreat, is really an eye-opener. It is so useful for many little things, especially with an older dog that has developed some habit such as jumping up at...

    Bobby

    Be careful what advice from here you implement. Bugging (looking around avoiding the pile look) is usually caused by pressure. The dog thinks it is going to get "nicked" or hurt because of...

    Hey Eug!

    Your Field Trial procedure post is very close to what I try to do. One caution that I don't think has been mentioned here.

    Let's go back to the original question instead of the derailment.

    In doing so, I make two assumptions: First, the trainer can think and Second, the dog can think enough to understand the trainers...

    If you said dogs don't think like humans we might agree. But to say dogs are not capable of thought is contrary to much research. Any careful observer training dogs would totally disagree with you!...
