Re: Sitting and barking instead of retrieval
From your other thread it sounds like you're trying to teach SchH exercises without a SchH club? Are you asking about teaching the hold and bark?
You can teach your dog to bark on command on your own, by showing the dog a reward and then blocking him from getting it until his frustration loads to the point he makes a noise, then mark that as the correct behavior and reward. As he gets the idea, you build up stronger and stronger barking.
But that's not a hold and bark. The hold and bark is a protection exercise, taught with a helper. You need a club for that.
