I recently began teaching my dog to count. She is a 2 yr old jack Russell and she's a bottle of crazy. The reason thats so important is because it's hard to get her to focus. We are only on step 1: speaking upon my subtile cue. My subtile cue is looking directly into her right eye to begin barking, and breaking eye contact to stop barking. This was a cue that someone else used with their dog. My problem with this is, I don't know when to click and reward. Do I click the moment she starts barking when I'm doing the cue to begin barking (right now I still have to use voice command too)? Or do I click when I cue her to stop barking? I'm not sure how to correctly distinguish when to bark and when to stop. Also another thing I thought of today was, when ever I'm training her, I always look at her like I described as my subtile cue to start barking, I mean, I always make her "Look" then I proceed with the training. But I'm almost certain this will confuse her and I'm afraid that once she learns the subtil cue, she might begin speaking whenever I do look at her. So I thought maybe by saying "Ready" or "What is..?" Might be as a prep for her to know that when I look at her to begin "counting." But how do I teach this? I am really determined to get her to do this and I'm super excited if only I could get some help.
