Don't hide from a training opportunity.
While there are moments that we must teach the thousand steps to success while our dog learns the behaviour, there comes a point where we must assume the lesson is learned and move on to teaching difficulties.
Sometimes, often, the challenges will look messy. That is your opportunity to coach your dog through if he shows effort, demand more if a lack of effort, and help if your small challenge was over his head.
Messy, ugly training, coached right, is often where the best learning occurs. Don't hide from it.
