In this month’s Obedience Corner, Baby Justice learns that the reward comes to those that wait. “Stay” is thought incorrectly by some to be a passive command. In reality,
it is an active command – where the dog must actively remember to staying. Opposition Reflex means that we teach the dog to stay in position while we apply leash pressure to pull them out of the the position we asked them to stay. And the Cookie Slide Game just adds some additional heat.
With Justice, the criteria is that he not only STAY, but he also needs to focus.

Treasury Report – December
