I won't ever pretend I only ever use positive reinforcement, but here's my scent hound demonstrating a fairly decent level of obedience - she's been trained with no physical corrections (oh - but she has been trained with food!);

Note the waggy tail
VERY VERY NICE!!! Well done, love seeing those happy tails!

Nice work Smeagle! Yeah, about those treats. It is surely just a matter of time before your dogs become aggressive. You can just see Daisy seething under that wagging tail and wiggly body. She is just looking happy to throw you off.

She's adorable. What an attentive, happy looking dog!

His nails don't even look that long... but this video is super helpful with step by step desensitizing instructions. I would hate having to go to the vet for that. I dremel weekly! addicted. YouTube - How To Clicker Train Your Dog To Enjoy Nail Clipping!

I'm going to favorite that on youtube so I can give this a shot with him

Thanks for the lovely comments, everyone. The funniest bit was that we were asked to do a run out (it was our first time in the ring under trial conditions) and apparently a few of the judges said not to bother bringing the beagle over because it would be a waste of time as they only wanted good dogs for the trainee judge to judge. They ate their words when we left the ring

I like to see a little more drive and focus from her, she is capable of giving a fair bit more, but it wasn't bad for our first time in the ring. Would love to see anyone get the same level out of drive and focus from her using praise only (she has a very very high scent drive).

That's hilarious!!! I bet you beamed from head to toe with that!

I agree...praise is all well and good but a high value reinforcer is usually needed to beat out the competition in motivators. And not only for focus, but focus without spoiling the drive, as with sharp correction type training. She looks pleased as punch the whole time, eager....and you just can't get that level of enthusiasm with compulsive training methods. You've done super with your Beagle baby!

LOL I sure did! I was mostly just relieved that we managed to get through it all haha!

Thanks for your lovely compliments I know quite a few dogs that will turn themselves inside out for praise, but my beagle is not one of them haha!
