Training Rule of Thumb!

When sequencing an exercise or skill, NEVER move from the first skill in the sequence to another IF the first skill did not meet your criteria. 

For example, if I am heeling and the right turn did not meet my criteria, I will stop my training and not continue to heel.   We will review and work on criteria and perfecting the right turn separately before adding it back into my heeling.

Same if we are working on agility contacts, 2o2o behavior.   If my dog does not perform the criteria for the contact, I will not let my dog continue to the next obstacle, rather we will stop and perfect my dog’s contact behavior before continuing to train other obstacles or skills.
