to quote one of the most used sayings in teh sport
"the only thing 2 dog trainers agree on is that the third one is doing it wrong"
Go take some classes at an AKC club - get your dog to focus under distraction....the long downs and sits are in groups....wonderful proofing for the dogs
My schutzhund titled dogs all have CDs or a couple legs on them - just don't get around to alot of AKC shows - females heat always seemed to coincide with convenient AKC trials....I think the AKC work for OB helped for control tremendously.
