In episode 62, Sean goes over some misunderstandings and mistakes in using various commands in your obedience training. He gives you an understanding of what elements of verbal commands mean something to your dog and what elements are mainly for humans. Additionally, Sean gives you some tips on how you can “geek out” and take some advanced commands to the next level.
Learning these concepts will decrease your frustration and increase your dog’s understanding of what you’re trying to teach them.
Also, Sean has a little New Year’s Resolution challenge for you!
