โš ๏ธ One of the most consistent areas that need improvement with the dogs and handler teams we coach here at CSI is the use of effective markers.โฃ
โฃ
๐Ÿงฉ That should be unsurprising, especially considering that effective use of markers is a core component of clear communication with our dogs.โฃ
โฃ
๐Ÿง  Effective use of markers is also one of the key areas that pro dog trainers like myself recognise in the dog trainers that we ourselves choose to learn from.โฃ
โฃ
๐Ÿ’ญ In all honesty, if a dog trainerโ€™s practical application does not show effective use of markers, then Iโ€™ll choose another source to learn from.โฃ
