There are those little things that make all the difference, and it is the basics. I´ve made a list of fifteen little pieces that might be worth to rememeber and to repeat to your self once in a while. It is not some kind of mantra, it is more of a foundation to base your plan for training on.
Like: Hurry slowly, one shall always be ready to take both one and two steps backwards in training! The dog never ever fails! Never punish the dog, it do not understand it. Use the same signals and signs, etcetera, etcetera. It might sound silly to stand infront of a mirror to make hand signals, but to be sure that you use the same signal every time it might be very, very wise to actually do just that.

Well all of us write here, both humans and dogs ;) At least that was the plan but it seems it´s mostly me Robyn who´s attached to the keyboard...
