Well, I'm answering too many messages right now because they are all interesting, so sorry for being a post hound (hahaha).......Greg Long said:I read a post somewhere not long ago that stated \"every dog has to have a foundation in prey\"........Also, training agility and obedience with treats isnt the only way......Again im not saying this is the best way but there are many ways to do things just as there are many different types of dogs.Just something to think about....... Greg....
P.S. I hope this is in the right section.
But Greg has such a great point. It does me good to really read and think about all the different viewpoints, because I do tend to start believing that if what I am doing is successful, then it must be \"the\" way to do it!
That \"foundation in prey\" quote --- did it refer to every Sch dog, or what? It sounds so weird........to me, anyway, but I have no special-training experience.
And when I read the other (non-treat) ways to teach \"look at me,\" I got a wakeup!
