Jennifer I was explain my training the other day with quiet command. I have never had to tell her quiet once I got her to understand that being vocal was not acceptable. That was what I was trying to explain to teach the dog. I have had to give quiet command while getting ready to honor but that's it. So with others say say quiet while dog is running test is not what I was explain to do. Just teach it being vocal is not acceptable. A pro friend of mine taught me to do it that way.
