    Default basics question

    I have always CC'd a dog before going through FF. One, to establish solid and thorough obedience. And two, to help the dog to learn to turn off pressure.

    I have seen this progression done one of two ways: 1. cc then ff
    and 2. ff then cc.

    What is the theory behind the latter?

    just wondering, probably the same reasons.

    The theory is two things: Use FF to teach the dog to turn off pressure and B: you teach everything without the collar first and then CC..
    The collar is not used to "teach" anything but to reinforce existing commands the dog already knows.
    That's my 2 cents anyway
