WOOOOOO!!!!! We made it!!!!!! Michael said that he is willing to work with Sabo and I!!!! His drive was diminished a bit today due to it all being a new area, but it was there, he was willing to play with a flirt pole, and Mike said to work on it at home that he realizes it's a new area, we need to get him to focus no matter where. When Mike asked me to show him Sabos obedience it was SPOT ON! I never taught Sabo the formal heel, so we kinda sucked at that, but he gave me a belt with hotdogs and that improved it all...he was VERY impressed with Sabo's "sit/stay" especially that I could drop the leash and walk away and Sabo didn't move, the same with the down/stay. He brought out a jump just to see what Sabo would do, so I sat Sabo on one side and started walking around to the other and he said "You think he will do it?"...and I said YUP! And called him over and he charged right over...had to check it out after because it's not like ours (the wooden planks vs PVC) but he went over! Then he went over a few more times!!!! I can't wait! I"m going to call him tonight with my schedule and lay out a schedule for us!
Thank you for ALL your support! I can't wait!
