Seminar Day 1!

SO exhausted. And only day one ....of nine.

We talked about tracking and how to put down non visible articles and how to not do silly mistakes.
And we talked about whistle recalls and getting the behavior and making it easy for the dogs. We talked about dogs that want to bark while working. We talked about retrieves (I missed that part, but got a nice summary!). And how to be consistent in training (and how people are not). We talked about shaping. We talked about object interaction. We talked about cues. Position of reinforcer. And I left my notes at the building....

Off early to watch some tracking..... and today we're using COOL TRAINING TOOLS. A fancy fancy fancy ball launcher... I can't wait to see how it works with Griffin's contact behavior!
