Pretty cool and good advice from your TD. Build engagement using reward and lack of reward, nothing else. When you have super solid engagement (a few months of work) only then start shaping OB with no verbal command (sit, down and stand), then introduce verbal commands when pup is offering behavior and reduce body cues till he begins to understand verbal only. Everything is fun and play, if you start losing engagement that means there needs to be more play. Looking forward to hearing updates.
