It’s OK To Make Mistakes While Clicker Training…

In our Kuvasz Friday video this week, I show what happened when I trained AJ improperly doing the “back up” behaviour. I initially started training this behaviour facing her. I don’t know what I was doing but I ended up having her STOP after only a couple of steps. Then I would have to re-cue her to do a couple more steps.

In re-training this behaviour, I started clicking the MOVEMENT of the back feet – which is how this should be trained in the first place. My mistake! Now she has realized that moving the feet is what gets the click and NOT the stopping.
