Catch up with ya Monday :-*August 3, 2006 at 6:52 pm #92456
so dogs left(dog facing me) , is my right arm signal, but say left
does this nor confuse the dog if the dog is next to me, and i say left, and use left arm as want dog to go left??
or is this why we do dog left and right so can do it when facing u and when not!?August 3, 2006 at 6:56 pm #92457
t h i n k – remember – you are cueing an action not the result – as in cue sit when lying down
if the dog is facing you and you stretch out you right arm as the visual – what way in to his/her body is the dog going to turn? if you cue it right then the dog will always turn that way – ok?August 3, 2006 at 7:00 pm #92458
im sorry im sure i get this!
i get the cue the sit, when lieing down, fist over head bring in back to get her to sit up, but with the left and right a dog will not know their left and right , so will it ever be on verbal only?? i think i get the arms i think, dog will go where arm is pointing even if no verbal
dont worry, not started this one will leave it till i fully understand!!August 3, 2006 at 7:06 pm #92459
back track – why does a well cued dog push bum in to floor when lying down and cued sit – you told me this remember – the sit is bum on floor ie the action – if dog lying down then bum is on floor – so if you cue sit then bum will be pushed further on floor so we say upsit yeah
if the dog is facing you his left is your right etc – if you verbal cue right to go your right the dog is going his left – so when he next to you – if you cue your right – then he will still go his left
it is the action that is verbal cued – not the direction – everyone got that?
so jayne has it correct ;D well done to jayneAugust 3, 2006 at 7:07 pm #92460
If you are walking forward and you want the dog to go right you shout right. The dog will turn and go right!!! When training and dog is facing you – this is about what way the dog is facing so you dont say right if it is the dogs left. Think Dog – do it from dogs perspective once it is in place and firm the dog will turn to whatever way you are visually cueing and go the correct way. Do it from dog’s view when teaching it.August 3, 2006 at 7:36 pm #92461
ok i got it!!August 5, 2006 at 7:30 am #92462
