Did you know? According to research by Ramirez 1999, in order for a dog to associate a specific action with a consequence, that consequence must occur within half a second.

What does this mean for the dog owner? It simply means that when you catch your dog doing something good, be fast to mark it within half a second (with the click or your clicker, or verbal marker) followed by a treat so that your dog knows exactly what behavior is being reinforced.
