Right. So since Axel is on limited exercise at the moment, I have been trying to occupy him (and me) with some extra training. The problem I am having with him is that he goes WILD when we're training. It's like he will try to offer me every behaviour he knows in a matter of seconds to get a treat... the problem is that it genuinely looks like he doesn't actually think when he's doing it all. He will continue to offer the same behaviour time and time again (e.g. backing up on any items not even involved in training when I am teaching him to bow). I try not to say "no" and just ignore any wrong offerings but even if I go a step back and repeat the basic steps a few times and he seems to get it, as soon as I want him to offer the behaviour, he will go back to doing everything and anything else today I was teaching him to put his paw on his nose... he offered it without a cue a couple of times, got clicks and lots of treats and then suddenly as if there was some sort of click in his brain and next thing I knew he started offering me "roll over", "sit pretty" and "back up" any advise on how to get him to focus or settle a little bit more? or is it more a thing of getting used to using his brain and it will come with practice? P.s. anyone has good links to blogs, websites or videos for trick training with tricks and steps for training them?
