Just keep up what you are doing and remember to be FUN, FUN, FUN. As some dogs mature the focus may decrease, that happened with my Mal. I need the focus because of Schutzhund heeling so I had to add some corrections for just disobeying, but as soon as that focus is back you MUST be HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY. Again, I only ask for this kind of focus during heeling because I train for sport.

Thanks Everyone for the nice comments.
Here are some more pics of Gabby & Olex heeling. Pretty nice, job overall. I lost most of her BH routine video. Here sit out of motion was great she got 56 out of 60 (highest BH score in the trial)and the ding was a handler mistake she forgot an about turn.

Default attention and focus

I have never watched any dog trials or such but that video is amazing. You should be so proud. Great work for both
Gaby and GSD in my opinion.

Thank you. I have a boy who loses focus very quickly. The technique offered by his trainer in obedience class didn't "take" very well. He looks at me but then is distracted easily, esp when other dogs/people/squirrels/toys are around. Your approach makes a lot more sense. I'm starting right now....
