A few weeks back, Jan, at the suggestion of our training instructor, taught Ellie to raise her front paw and hold it in the air for longer and longer periods of time. It looks cute, and it does help to build her focus, I suppose, so where's the harm? How could that possibly harm anything? The problem is that has now become her default behaviour, and she does it sooooo many times. If I'm walking in the street, and give a "sit", I now, invariably, get a sit with paw raised. cop-cop? I get cop-cop with one paw raised. You name it, we get a "would you like raised-paw with that?". So much so, I now refuse to reward it, in the hope that it will fade away. So, anyone else got a behaviour that they wish they had never taught? Though, it might well be for completely different reason!
