This Relationship Centered Training™ (RCT) technique is simple, effective and helps dogs learn to greet each other in brief, low arousal introductions.
Go Say Hi 1-2-3 involves:
- giving permission (Go say HI!)
- counting to 3
- calling out dog and away from the other dog
In that 3-second interval, dogs get a lot of information about each other, much as people learn a lot with just a simple greeting and a handshake.
