Take a dare and have your camera ready

I've been toying with this thought for a day or so and it just came together so:

For those of you who have a great bond with your dog based on a lot of fun along with the rules that the dog learned both through praise and consequences when needed.

The next time your guy or girl does something that is off limits/out of bounds/breaks the rules but makes you laugh on the inside and requires a somewhat firm voice on the outside, instead of the usual firm expected "leave it" or "stop" or what ever, say her name or look him dead in the eye and ask "do you want a correction". Then start clicking and report back.

It would be interesting to see if yours did what mine did (it happened quite a while ago but I was thinking about it): a head tilt and ran right over oh so happily to get what I threatened to give him Lol. I'll also do it again and grab a pic as soon as he does something wrong. Oh, and don't correct him for rushing to you, reward him he deserves it for making you smile.

It seems the "do-you-want-a" is the magic phrase. Anything that follows that has got to be good, right? The trick to this is having that camera ready when your dog is misbehaving.

yup. The head tilt came when he heard the word "correction" that I had never used before or since in any context. After a second of digesting the word and the head tilt he was convinced that whatever that word meant was a good thing. It was his facial expression that was priceless while sorting it out.

I really hope he mildly pushes my button so I can capture it in a pic.

language and dogs can be so funny. When we are out on walks and if the path or sidewalk is crowded my hubby might say, "no bite" which means NOTHING to my big-boy but the person in front of us will suddenly start looking around and then when they see our boy, they usually smile. Better than "hey lady, watch out as we pass by".

If I say "do you wanna correction" in the same tone I say, "do you wanna piece of cheese"...I'm sure my dog will come running!

He will think: that must be a fancy kind of cheese, gourmet maybe!
Both of us love cheese...we stand there in the kitchen together taking turns eating little pieces of cheese...

Same here but when I asked him " do you want a correction". That one time, it was in place of an actual correction that I was thinking of giving so my tone was a stern warning rather than the happy tone I use with the familiar question. . Thus the head tilt and short hesitation. It was a conflicting message that he made a decision on. I think I gave him the green lite after the head tilt. I probably smirked or some other body language.

No pics yet as he hasn't given me reason to say it.
