Great advice Diego, thanks for sharing it.
It reminds me of something I read in Karen pryors book: Don't Shoot the Dog!: The New Art of Teaching and Training.
She says that with training dogs (or people)to do something new, you should always stop at a succesfull point. If you continue too long, the training effect will decrease (and the subject will loose interest) making it all the harder to reinforce the new behaviour the next time.
