    It works better if you don't go the casting. Just no-no, recall, simplify, and try again.

    Also, it's no-no when I do it, as opposed to NO-NO. Just want to condition the dog to bring recalled in a...

    I use it in just about every day. Why? Because my dog is doing something I don't want him to do.
