Obj 3: Verbal Cue *Free*

Objective 3: Dog responds to the verbal cue.

When your dog is reliably nose touching your hand in a variety of locations, you can start adding the cue just before the dog starts doing it. Here I train Lucy to do it in a new outdoor location. First review the behavior without the cue, then start adding the cue. 

Note the smooth training pattern? There’s that Loopy pattern again! This time we’ve added the cue. 


      1. Cue (I present my hand) 
      2. Dog nose touches my hand 
      3. I click/treat
      1. Cue 
      2. Nose touch 
      3. Click treat 

All in quick succession!
