    Hi Courtney,

    Thanks for your (yet again) helpfully expansive note. Forgive me for being pedantic, but I wanted to dig deeper into the marker words…

    This is what I do for a simple “place” command, for example:

    “Kimba” (his name) – slight pause – “place” – “yes”(marker) – reward (either food or praise). After that I will continue to “praise” with “good place” said occasionally, but I want him to stay on that place mat without me having to say “stay”. He does so until I release him with “free”.

    Does that sound ok to you?
