the permission and the ability to make decisions. Too many handlers micro manage the dog , telling the dog every move to make . Stand back and let the dog show you. This is not obedience, but harnessing the dogs' talent for our use.

The dog has to have initiative , work without constant motivation .

The dog has to work with distractions and stay dedicated to task. No running off to visit with some doggy for a romp .

No crittering -- bad habit .
