    I can explain my method for you if you like, I thought I'd ask before I did though!

    It's incredibly simple. Bella already knows click = treat. Now when you click say a fast, simple, single syllable word (like Yes - I will use Yes as the example) something you don't use with her often and something that is clear. Say it in a happy cheerful voice, and make sure you say it at the same time as you click. Once she seems to understand that 'Yes' + click = treat you can start to phase out the click. Try doing 10 repetitions of click +yes = treat (as though you are charging the clicker) then try a yes without the click, if she looks for the treat you've got it, still practice a little more (I did this with dinner for some of the rescues, instead of treats so they didn't spoil their appetites).

    I hope this makes sense, if not let me know and I will rephrase. I'm recovering from a very sleepless weekend at the moment so please excuse me if I'm talking jibberish!

    It means that hopefully you and some of the other younger members will ease off with the millions of irrelevant posts every day because you will be busy studying. That is all.

    Occy, was it not you who said to stop sticking the needles in? I have not been flooding the board with irrelevant posts.
