I have been Bow training all week with no seccess at all. I use a lure down between his front paws and as soon as he is in the correct position, I c/t. But Spyder is not catching on at all. Any suggestions?
I don't think that's wrong, depending upon what stage Buddy is in. While yes I like to click behaviors and reward the position, I find that when I start out teaching bow a lot of dogs lie down really quickly. So I click the bow, and then lure back up to a stand with the treat to tell them that I don't want a complete down. Once they are at this point, I then go to treat them in the bow position and try to keep clicking and treating as long as they are holding the bow. So the dog might be able to hold it for 2 treats at first, but then for 5 treats later.tigerlily46514;20780 said:I've also quit giving him the treat i lured him with while he is in position. I wondered if giving him the treat while in the bow position was what was messing up Buddy's ability to get the trick right...
Now I click when he is in a bow, but give him the treat in a stand, is that wrong?
