This could not have been planned! But it turned out AWESOME! If only dog training was as easy as being a wizard and waving a magic wand! Nope, that's not really very realistic, we and our dogs have to live in reality and reality is, it takes a lot longer than a few weeks or months to raise happy well-adjusted and trained dogs. Come down off your cloud and get real, get the right help so that you too can have a dog like this. And without using punishments that leave marks visually and mentally on your dog/s.

“A common flaw in stimulus-controlled behavior is anticipation: Once the cue has been learned, the subject is so eager to offer the behavior that it acts before the cue has actually been given” (Pryor, 1984, 1999). I prefer to use the training correction “stops” given the context is connected with actively training dogs versus using timeouts for social corrections. There are inherent differences between the two types of context and use. To avoid confusion and provide consistent feedback between dog and owner/handler, understanding when, why, where, and for what reason should be considered at all times. Dogs learn best when provided clear rules concerning their behavioral responses, doing this avoids anxiety produced when any subject is unsure about any consequences that may result from their behavior. This also explains why using punishment, especially incorrectly, can cause serious learning deficits.
