Hey everyone, we have a GSD/Mal mix of some sort who just turned four months old last week. We're kind of late getting her into some classes (we've been having difficulties finding a legit trainer around here), but have been working with her as much as we can, but anything beyond "sit" and using a release word, we're pretty clueless
So my question is, how can I get her to focus more and improve her recall?
We've recently been letting her run in a fenced area (high school practice field) to see how she would do without us attached to the other end of her leash and gradually built up to no leash at all and she's been doing great. We have a very large yard (about an acre) and would love to be able to take her out there to play off leash since walks just aren't cutting it anymore.
I know obedience classes will help immensely, but what can we do until then? Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks
Also, when we first adopted her, her ears were up, now they're going through some funky stages
