15 Jan Pete and Repeat?
It is almost irresistibly compelling to repeat the cue when Pete, your dog, makes a move for that liver cube. It’s hard to resist the normal human automatic reation to tell your dog what to do even when you know your dog doesn’t yet understand what the words mean. We are a verbal species; our dogs are not.
When you cover the cube with your foot rather than repeating the cue, your’re speaking your dog’s language – using body language to communicate to your dog that the cube belongs to you, and he can’t have it. In fact, the reason this exercise works so well is that when you cover the forbidden object with your foot, your’re resource-guarding. Now that’s a behavior your dog understands – dogs do it all the time.
