There's an excellent article over on the Collared Scholar about letting our dogs fail during training.

I recommend a look see by DSF members. Full Article

And if they learn they can always lean on us for guidance, they will stop trying so hard when things get tough and instead look to us and ask “what do I do next?”

We need to be strategic about failure in our training.

this is from humans and coddling the kids too, we have become a soft society. Although, It does take Sadie many more times than Thalie to learn she cant run through the railings with a 6' stick
