Make Your Dog Want to Perform | Step 3: Tackling Performance Problems

preparing to show reward markers Jan 13, 2022

Solving problems that occur in the ring is much easier when you use a well-conditioned Reward Marker. In today’s video, I offer you some examples.

As you start afresh in 2022, I hope I have given you some things to think about, namely,

  1. Training is more than making a dog perform, it is making him want to perform
  2. Your dog should believe he can control when reward happens (Part I of this series)
  3. Connecting behavior with a Reward Marker will cause the behavior to become rewarding (Part II of this series)

If you have enjoyed this series, and would like to continue to learn with me, I invite you to join my membership program, the Obedience Road.  

Membership opens today and will be open through the end of the month.

I encourage you to join by January 26 so that you can participate in the webinar for new members.

I only open registration twice a year because it is most effective to bring on new members as a group. The next registration will not be until July 2022. 

 I started coaching competitive students over 30 years ago, in classes, seminars, through writing and video. The Obedience Road is a cumulation of all of the information that I have available. I am committed to helping you reach your goals. 

In this series, I have done my best to teach you how to make your dog want to perform. I have so much more I want to teach you. It is my heart’s desire to support you! I hope I’ll see you on the Road!
