Here is my 'quandary'...Having a dog that has not been FF ,or CC, and NOT been trained in 'Positive only', or clicker
A theoretical 'snappy/crisp' SIT to stop whistle is achieved
When the 'stop' whistle has been used in training to condition the dog to 'take a line that has been ,ie keep on truckin,or the stop' will tell you that you have gone off line'?..therefore 'your desire'(retrieve)is less forthcoming like we conditioned you to want?
Can you see my quandary?....Or ...Is it really necessary,to do 'all the drills' in a programme?...to achieve the retrieve/hunt game.
I would welcome Mr Voigt's opinion on the 'stop command',or any other's?
