You talk about using a bit of your battery charge when you "make the sound" and don't follow it with the primary reward. So, if you're using "yes" as your marker, don't you end up discharging your battery a little more because "yes" is a common response in your day to day life? The use of "yes" + reward is not as high as "yes" and no reward, just because it's a common word/response. Just curious. (And I'm a big fan of marker training, I just happen to use a clicker).
