Cues In-Depth: What Makes a Good Cue, What's On Cue, and How Do You Add a Cue?
We started a series in June to bring the nuts and bolts of dog training directly to your email box. Everyone who has a dog can improve his or her dogâ€™s behavior. But sometimes, just getting started can be overwhelming. Or the first little speed bump you hit on your training road can be just enough for you to say â€œIâ€™ll get back to this later.â€
We want you to be successful from the beginning and have your training take off like a rocket ship! To that end, hereâ€™s our latest article in the series. Last month we talked about cues (which used to be referred to as â€œcommandsâ€). Weâ€™re taking a closer look at cues because this is where some people sort of fall off the â€œtraining wagon.â€
Weâ€™re going to look in-depth at cueing: first, what makes a good cue; next, what does it mean when a behavior is â€œon cue?â€ Finally, how do you actually get a behavior on cue?
