Dog Training, timing and accidentally training the wrong thing! (Easier than you think)

Did you know many owners inadvertently train the opposite of what they want their dog to do?
It all comes down to timing.
An example of this is the ‘Off’, for ‘Off the furniture’.
You should watch how you give the command for off the furniture. To teach ‘Off’, off must be said extremely quickly, the second your dogs feet are all off the object or all on the ground (a very small window of time). Whilst it is important not to wait with this command it is also important not to say it too early otherwise, the word “Off” is associated by your dog with being ON the furniture.
This principle applies with commands like “Quiet’ too. Where your dog should actually be being quiet at the time the word “Quiet” is said.
