I'm not sure if any of you know who Freddy King is on YouTube. I follow a lot of his videos, they are great.
I'm about to force fetch another dog and I'm trying to figure out which method I want to try.
Freddy King (Uses collar and ear pinch)
Duck Dog Basics (Momentary)
All 3 seem really good and seem very easy to understand. If you have experience with any of these I'd appreciate letting me know which one you had the best success with and why.
I've taught them like this:
Here: Command "HERE" then 3 tweets with a tug on the rope and that has worked for me. Any other methods that may be better? I just feel like some dogs wont get this everytime. Maybe try 3 tweets then here after awhile or just 3 tweets and a tug?
Sit: I heel with the dog and give a sharp tug when I stop along with a TWEET then say sit and repeat for days. Any other way to go about this that may be better?
