Sorry, was thinking you meant my older dog shutting down at a show.
I have seen dogs shut down when they make mistakes or you try over & over with them. 8/ I have seen it in my own dogs. They do not like to make mistakes & when corrected, may just shut down. Thus why I have been up in the air about correcting while doing agility & why I asked about engaging with her again when she does her own thing without a correction????? I would love to say, "NO or ATT" when she did wrong, but have just feared any neg while training in agility. Even been mixed about saying, "OPPS or TRY AGAIN". So far I just have been redoing till they got it & then Click, verbal, YES & treats or toy.
