In general, what are signs from your dog that they are overly stressed?:
Avoiding eye contact, licking of lips.
What are signs from your dog during training that your dog is confused, frustrated, worried, etc.? (It’s okay if you’re not sure!): He'll try everything he knows if he's confused and not sure what i'm asking of him.
Yep! If I don't say anything it means thats correct, keep going. I did have a 'good' installed as a feed in place but I don't use it anymore because he would start to go flat faster in the heel if he didn't hear 'good'. Can't talk to him in trial so I stopped using it.
Hahaha of course you can. His commands were all originally taught in english but he listens to EVERYONE and people started treating him as a circus monkey. They would ask him to sit and down without releasing him/reinforcement and it just got slightly unstable. I was going to go with german but then when i got to sit sitz sounds pretty similar so I changed it up again hahahaha.
Yay! Welcome to Rally!
Does "-" mean you don't use a feed in place marker?
Am I allowed to make fun of you for your cues being in French and German? Hehe
