That would happen whether or not the dog was being clicked or not bad training is bad training!

Yeah, what she said.
PS: That is officially the last time that I'm agreeing with you this year, Robin. Enough is enough!

Jack, you would have loved a seminar I was at recently where the limitations of clicker training were discussed.()


What happened then?
Did everyone get up and leave in a huff? Emotion: smile

Yeah, I get a little impatient with people who would limit the use of valid tools because they don't understand how and why they are effective.

Me too. Because it's always the dog who pays the price for their zealotry.
And then when I invite them to come on out to the field, or out to the kennel to help out with some serious rehab work, and to feel free to bring their clickers and food bags along, they never show up.

Very disappointing, but not surprising.

Jack, you would have loved a seminar I was at recently where the limitations of clicker training were discussed. Lori ... clickers, positive reinforcement primarily - but she is also a realist. We were working on extended uses of tools and

Lori was a major influence on getting me involved with dogs. She has a rare skill - she can teach both dogs and people. She made me and my mixed breed dogs welcome. And she had the wonderful ability to keep balance. People in the class shooting for AKC obedience perfection got the coaching they needed. People looking for reliable pet dog obedience didn't get pestered about a less then perfectly straight front. The other club members also gave a lot of support, but a good instructor is key.

Unfortunately, no one with an IQ larger than his waist size ever reads anything Jerry says.

Hmmm

That didn't come out quite right, did it?
