this seminar dvd can be found at wwww.tawzerdog.com As pet dog training evolved as a separate field from obedience, training techniques became more user-friendly and dog-friendly but performance reliability and precision took a nose-dive. To produce a precise and reliable performance, a comprehensive training program comprises five stages: 1. Teaching dogs what we want them to do; 2. Teaching dogs to want to do what we want them to do; 3. Enforcing compliance without fear, force, or pain; 4. Refining performance precision and pizzazz; and 5. Protecting performance reliability and precision. The first three steps focus on establishing verbal, off-leash (distance) response-reliability and are all-important in all fields of dog training. The last two steps ' refining precision, and protecting precision and reliability ' are primarily for obedience, working, and demo dogs.
