Anyone who trains with me knows that I always ask them what their think/plan/do is. It’s a Bob Bailey saying, and it’s to make you think about what you have in training, what you want, and then how to get there and then go do it.
It doesn’t have to be elaborate, it shouldn’t be really, dogs have a way of changing the best laid training plans.
This week I wanted to work on Maggie’s articles, really make that path to reinforcement clear to her………uh, huh!
Here’s a little bit about the training ideas that went into the think/plan part:
Here’s the DO!
This, this kind of “in the moment stuff is happening”, reality is why I love dog training so much. Right NOW you have to react, but it may not be the reaction you were planning on!
So, I will stick with my think/plan/dos and I will think harder when I train Maggie, my partner who keeps me on my toes. Love you, Maggie.
