TGD Video Tip: using tone and intent to create better training results
One of the things that trips up so many owners (and trainers!) up is the tone they use when interacting with their dogs. They might use too much excitement, not enough excitement (and usually the wrong one at the wrong time), or just not be believable in their tone to create what they want. When tone and intent is used properly you can help dogs move faster, slower, stay put, relax, calm down…or you can make them make mistakes, push against you, rev up when you want them revved down, ect. It also has a huge impact on relationship and your dog’s perception of you. Check out this clip for all the lowdown on how to use tone and intent to you and your dog’s advantage.
