[QUOTE=Vhuynh2;1964561]
Today Molly and I did more scenting games but she thinks all the lids are toys. So instead I scented one metal article and just put it next to one unscented and told her to "get it". She got the right one every time. I didn't do it too many times because I was just experimenting and I didn't want to inadvertently train it incorrectly. Does anybody know if I should not be doing something like this?

No idea. I do know that Casper learns and unlearns pretty quickly. I do have to watch out for his, uh, idiosyncrasies. He likes to jump and he likes to bop me with his nose. He'll work those in whenever he can.

Class tonight......

Bella was fantastic.

--Lots of heeling with leash and light line....much better than she has ever done before in a class setting. The other dogs were invisible to her. I was actually surprised how focused she was.

--2 recalls...very good speed, and good close fronts

--Very long sit and down stays with some challenging distractions....no problem.

Vhuynh2, I asked Kori about rewarding after the release from a stay. You were correct. A little praise is fine, but the release itself is a reward, and you don't want the dog getting up early in anticipation of the treat.

Anyway, as we were talking about that, she said she thinks Bella is a good prospect for competition. I actually agree with that. I just need to figure out what it all entails, before I make any decisions on that. I don't even know where they have these obedience trials around here. Maybe I'll try to find one, and go watch.

I agree with that too (even though I don't know anything)! Bella sounds great!

I'm like you...just trying to figure it all out on the fly. A great dog helps.

We are lucky to have dogs that inspire us.

Training Accountability - Jan 13 thru Jan 19

Last nite at class it went better , we set Nugget up and it worked for my dumbell stealing pup although I'm sure these corrections will need to be repeated a couple more times. Had two very good recalls and finishes nice and straight one not very good. Heeling and Fiq. 8 much better than Tues morn , stand was perfect and the out of site sits and downs successful. Still lots of practice needed for its a long long way to a UDX

**** Before I get carried away - I think it is just awesome to see new trainers in here and I love reading how well you guys are doing! I read something fairly depressing on facebook yesterday - somebody was making grim prognostications about obedience trials. As long as there are people jumping into novice a and really ENJOYING training their dogs how to do extraordinary things. Keep it up guys!

-

Yesterday I (drumroll) read the class handout finally for the articles training. You can tell why I'm reliant on having classes nearby and why I glazed over a few years ago with the first official novice class with Jacks and the teacher gave everyone a list of books that she wanted us to read in addition to the classes. <- I'm definitely a reader, but dog training kinda is something I like watching vs reading about. >.<

The method is based on 7 weeks of training. <- Not necessarily 7 weeks in real time, just how the steps are broken up.

Last week I was caught off guard when the instructor asked us how far we got. And other people said they were on week 2 or week 3. I (dummy) assumed these weeks were real time and I focused only on week 1 (scented metal article around the clock, adding article each time).

Stressed when I saw that in the method itself, the first article down needs to be only scented, not baited. <- I must have missed that. o_O Fortunately I've been doing that anyway, but (away) from the mat and in a more formal retrieve way vs "find it". Doh.

And stressed a little when I see exactly where I skipped ahead. Per the notes, I should not be backing off and controlling the retrieve from behind the dog until we are at week 6. After we've weaned off the bait. o_O My teacher mentioned in class that skipping ahead is fine, but we might discover holes later on or things might fall apart later.

Until we get to that point (week 6), I'm supposed to be rushing up, grabbing the collar, and reinforcing the find by praising the find, letting him lick off the bait, and calling/popping him back to the start point. Should he pick up the wrong article, then I would be correcting at that point and physically guiding him to the correct article to reinforce.

Before I read above notes and panicked about my doing this wrong, I played a little game with Jacks after training Berts and after formally training articles (through week 2) much earlier. I still had the mat out and noticed that Jacks still wanted to train. So I took 3 articles - one scented metal and 1 unscented leather and 1 unscented metal. I used absolutely no bait, only scented the metal article until my hands hurt. >.< I alternated putting the scented metal on the outside where he'd easily find it and then putting it towards the middle or behind the unscented dummy articles. He found the correct metal article each time - we did this only 3 times and then I quit.
