Getting a dog to stop dead in it's tracks and lay down via a hand signal might be the best thing you ever teach your dog if you see a potential hazard to her well being coming her way.....i.e. a car under way.

Your success with Mishka is once again refreshing to hear about as it shows how incredibly smart a GSD is.

Keep it up,

Yes, she picked up on the hand signals so fast. GSD's are a special kind of awesome
