Until this week I've never managed to get Zac to do a steady look at me, his eyes were always flicking from my face to the treat, whether I clicked a glance or I waited for a steady look he always broke just before I clicked (and often at such a split second that it was too late for me not to click). Frustrating! Then I realised something that is maybe obvious to all of you reading along... Zac was noticing my thumb tensing on the clicker... and breaking off in response not to the click but to that tiny movement. So I've started to hide my clicker hand behind my back and in a couple of days we've been able to build up to a 10 seconds steady "look at me". I know that isn't long for most dogs but it is a fantastic improvement with Zac.
