I see this a lot, especially with Romeo. I'll be trying to do something and not getting a consistent result, so we'll go off and do something else. The next day I reintroduce it, and I'm always surprised like Oh...you really DID absorb some of that, huh?

Not that we do any srs training but with Juno I expect progress pretty darn quickly. Because she's shown me time and time again that she can learn a new concept in just a couple reps... so if I don't see progress I pretty much start thinking it's a lost cause lol.

I am pretty quick to just stop working on a behavior if I'm not seeing progress after a session or two. If it's just a trick or something that I don't really need her to know. Switching my training method? Yeah that pretty much doesn't happen because typically I only know one way to do things
