Sheba (4 mnths) and I have been working together to get her training/commands down. She has never had any training whatsoever. Previous owners taught her kennel and potty through the doggy door.
We went to our first obedience training class this past Saturday and I got schooled more than she did.
Anyhow, training to walk on her leader loose the instructor gave me an option to help me (I'm tall she's super short) when we walk and sit when I stop. She does it as intended, but when we do stop and she sits - instead of winding up right beside me she is a half a human step behind. For an experiment I had her walking ahead of me for a short distance and stopped and even with the additional distance in front of me, she still sat in the same spot! *lol*
I will be addressing this with our trainer but that's not until Saturday. I was wondering if anyone has experienced this before. I have three days left this week to get her closer to me than she is now.
Secondly, she is given her commands in German. Many times when I give her "sitz" she is on point. But then there are moments when I do that, and she does "platz" instead. I just smile and shake my head. Slow down the pronunciation perhaps?
