USING A LURE
A lure is a food reward used to get us to do a behaviour. Eg A sit
Luring is a humane way of starting to train behaviours we already know how to do ourselves but not on cue.
It is used before we understand cue words for behaviours so the commands can be taught and a cue word we understand linked to the behaviour. It utilises our love of food to trick us into doing a behaviour by making us follow the food in order to get it. But be sure not to allow us eat the reward until we do the behaviour!!
You will see the luring technique in the upcoming training videos. Our first one together is almost ready to go!!
I was a star pupil so I hope you will all be impressed!!
