I understand what you are saying and will work on this. Is there a rule of thumb as far as how long this should take for each command? Should I work on each for a week and then move to the next command? Does it just depend on the dog? Also, what should I look for to know if it is "working" or if I need to increase the level of pressure?
One more question, am I correct in understanding that if the dog "beats" the pressure with the proper response, you do not apply the pressure to allow him to escape the pressure?
Thank you again for your help. This is all beginning to become clear. I will definitely start working on this and I hope to see some real results soon.
