Discrimination

Found another article in my files on dog discrimination lol.

Is your dog a discriminator? Take the sit test. 1. Ask them to sit from a distance of thirty feet.
2. Turn your back to them and ask for a sit.
3. lie on your back and ask for a sit.
4.When walking, ask him to sit as you continue walking.

If they don't do any of these four. they are discriminators. LOL
Why , because they don't generalize well and have only learned these cues when you are standing in front of them.

Yes! We practice nosework often sitting or standing looking away from them, the instructors tell us when to reward. Really makes a difference they tend to work more independently that way also.

Yes! I don't turn away for scent articles, but I always look at my feet, not at the pile, so Kodi can't read any subtle body language.

I had my corgi trained to do commands without looking at her. She would even do commands when I used hand signals. Plus she would stay on a command even if I left the room. I don't know if I'll ever get Willow so well trained, but I hope I can at least get her to pay attention to me and obey simple commands.

Actually most dogs respond better to hand signals than voice commands. The "language" part of their brains is poorly developed in comparison to their senses.

Most dogs CAN learn to follow cues without the person looking at them, but it needs to be TAUGHT and proofed gradually, over a period of time. It doesn't just happen.
