In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discuss:
- Crossover effects for puppies and police dog training.
- Balancing giving attention to the dog with creating independence.
- Distance work versus safety-seeking and teaching independence.
- Finding a balance between go and stop, with more bias toward the action of go.
- The dog should get attention when it works and does something productive, not just because it is seeking attention.
- Bias to attention not action can form through too much obedience training.
- Value distance work don’t just train your dog to safety seek.
- Without balance, you will create unintended crossover effects. Balance is the key.
