Too Busy to Train
OK, don't flame me for being too busy to train. But I actually am. I usually repeat and name the good behavior and Rasa did and Nimai picks up on it FAST. It took 3 repeats of "treat" and 5 repeat sessions of "elevator" or "lets go" to get what I want.
So Nimai is a fairly fast learner, WHEN HE WANTS TO BE. He has not learned (rather applied) "Stay" nor "Come back" "leash", etc, especially when he has something better to do, such as sniffing new territory, chasing, acting stupid on walks. (after all he is 12 months old).
I need to teach these things to save his life from cars and other dangers, quickly. There are almost no cars around here, but my track record shows that there are just enough.
So, do electronic collars work? Or should I start clicker? Again don't chastise me too hard as I really need to get these commands down and fast, with little effort.
He is with me 24/7 so I have a lot of undedicated time with him. Walks 3-5 times a day, up and down around the shop 10+ times a day, etc.
