I dont think its the golden rules as my timing, motivation and consistency seem to be on. I think he is just learning that he can wait until the “no” to respond to the command. The timing is on. Im following the 1/2 second rule. The motivation is there; this dog has a low food/toy drive dog but he will return for the reward however only on after ive gotten to the “no” part of the sequence. The consistency is there i always repeat the command sequence and never give a a command I cant back up.
I think hes just learning that negative reinforcement wont begin until after the “no” is given.
