    Whether we like it or not, there are four quadrants in Operant Conditioning.

    And two of them involve applied pressure.

    If you want to train using only half of the quadrants that effect...

    There is no freaking way that I'd let what I see in that picture rest on that explanation.

    That ain't normal.
    And shrugging it off as "discolored iris tissue" is no sort of diagnosis.

    I don't think that those get inside the eye itself. They live in the tear ducts and under the eyelids.

    That's something else.

    I use lots of different ducks.
    On any given day you could reach into my bucket and pull out a merganser or rouen, as easily as a mallard.

    Live rouens can't fly. Unless you mean "flying" out of a...

    You don't understand.

    The cradle will automatically go into trickle mode after a period of time. When it does this, the light on the cradle goes from red, to green.

    That does NOT mean that the...

    That is the problem. You are handling in a reactive manner, vs a proactive manner.
    And waiting for the dog to do something before you do something (reactive), means that you won't ever be quick...

    Through intentional distractions.

    As you follow your program, you'll start to notice more and more ways that distractions are engineered into the progression.

    I forgot to add, that before you go about dealing with the shopping, I'd put a rope on him.
    He's not at a point that I'd be using a "here-nick" just yet.

    As soon as he starts shopping, I'd give a...

    I probably would have stopped the dog as soon as it overran the pile, and then stood there feeling silly while my significant other filmed him taking a dump with a bumper in his mouth.

    The one thing that really would have bothered me, hasn't even been mentioned yet.
    And I don't know why.

    On the last cast, (a LH back) at 2:20, the dog initially took the cast, but then completely...

    I'd stick with them, and what they say, vs asking a bunch of people that you've never met, and that have never seen you interact with your dog what they would do.

    You said study 4 times in that post.
    You even put it inside quotation marks once.

    Anybody that read that post, was confused about what you were trying to say.

    Or, at least, put him in a kennel run where he can't get to stuff that he can chew and/or swallow.

    I'm glad that as a black dog owner, I don't have need to bother with such nonsense.

    And besides, all those yellow dogs wish they were black.

    When it gets that hot, you need to either adjust your schedule to be training at first light, (and bring ice and fans) or take the day off.
    Heat kills dogs.

    I look at it like a Hunting License.
    I'll pay what it costs.

    But, that doesn't mean that I won't bitch and moan about it.
