Hello. When I got our girl, Agnes, I found Michael Ellis, thanks to this site. I am now watching his "How to train a dog with food" dvd, and have a question. He says the first step is to "load" your words, ie: yes, good, no. Simple enough...just wondering how long this process takes?
And can you do luring, and other engagement exercises at the same time?
If this is not posted in the right place, please let me know.
Oh, yes,....can I also use this training method on a two year old dog that is trained, (almost has a cd, a rally title, etc) yet so food motivated that it;s hard to get him to stay focused and engaged without food? I am thinking that if I load the yes, good, no with him (wish I had found Ellis long ago!), that that would help him along with engagement training/exercises.
