Recognition of roads   Behavior and Training

Is it reasonable to expect that a GSD could recognise a road from footpath?

I am punishment marking/sometimes pinging Ray for walking onto roads ahead of me as.. well, it's obvious. We go onto roads together, with you by my side.

Yesterday he looked back at me on the colour transition from limestone path to gravel road (in the country, no height differential or curb) and I marked like heck.

Just coincidence? Or can they do it?

Swearing doesn't seem to be allowed here, now?

My pics won't post :(

Yeah we have a swear word filter.  He should be able to find transitions but I would reward for getting it or withhold treats vs giving a punishment.

click on the little picture within a picture in the toolbar above your post. It’s just to the left of the Quote marks, “.  Then you should be able to embed pictures in your posts. We need to see Ray.

It can be done. I would try to make the training as clear as possible though.
