Develop a consistent communication system with your dog.
Markers are clickers or words like “yes” that are used to tell the dog he is correct. This requires specific timing so that you reward the exact behavior you want.

Step 2– Repeat 10x
Step 3– Do this several times per day
Step 4– Wait until your dog looks away, then click
Step 5– Continue practicing until your dog looks at you each time you click.
