    I rarely use it. Only if the dog is not paying attention and the show is about to start. Then I'll use it as others have said as a cue. He knows he needs to look forward when he hears it because...

    Breeding him will only increase his lack of focus if he scents it again. He'll know what he's missing and want it. Not unlike most of us lol
