Why using commands as praise for themselves is simply POOR TRAINING

Back to video library

Overview: Over the years I have come across at least one quite well-known sheepdog trainer (and many pet trainers), who recommended using commands as praise.  For example, if we sit our dog down, then instead of just saying “good dog”, these trainers recommend saying “good sit down”.

In this video, I explain why this is simply BAD TRAINING and why it is a sign of a POOR TRAINER. Make sure you don’t make the same mistake!
