Rules for Training

Some rules for training from ‘The Clicked Retrieve’ by Lana Mitchell

  1. Keep training sessions short and frequent
  2. Only introduce a cue after the behaviour exists.
  3. Allow your dog to learn on his own by experiencing which behaviours get rewarded and which are not.
  4. Start by rewarding for accuracy then raise criteria in small increments by adding the 3 D’s – distance duration and distraction
  5. Remain quiet when training to let the dog concentrate
  6. Remain calm – don’t get frustrated and lower criteria if training isn’t progressing.
  7. When your dog gets it – move ahead.
  8. End on a good note
