Thank you....

But I wouldn't consider her "well trained"...

Let's just say she's "domesticated"

Kira is now 18 months.
In the video, maybe 16 months.

Anthony, check this one out BowWowFlix.com: Dog DVD Rentals | Dog Training Dvd | Dog Dvds | Rent Dog Videos

It is like Netflix and you can get anything from everything, from Schutzhund Obedience, Tracking to Dog Dancing and Agility, to Behavioral Tutorials.

If that doesn't give you tons of stuff to do with your dog, I don't know what does

I would like to learn how to and what to say when:

1) I want her to stop and drop (down) on a send away

2) I want her to drop on command if she happens to be somewhere, and maybe some kids startle her on a bike or jog. I'd want to be able to down her from a distance.

These are just a couple of things I need to learn how to teach.
Honestly, it doesn't matter what commands you use. You are not trialing your dog. Your dog is your companion so saying wait or down, doesn't matter as long as you get the result you want.

Also, I'd like to say, for an "amateur" she's got some pretty nice training and control on her and I am surprised how drivey she actually seems to be.

llombardo These games are good for mental stimulation. The flirt pole is good for exercise and prey drive.

I actually agree with this. Training is also incorporated to other things daily. Training is ongoing and being done all the time even if you don't realize it.

Have you ever done anything like find it or nose work? It can be a fun game. You get all kinds of different container like things..boxes, bags, etc. You get like 10 of them, put them in one area all spread out, put treats in like 4 of them and she has to find the ones with the treats in them. Chances are she will indicate or paw the container over to get to it...its fun, easy, and makes them think. By day two you will probably be able to tell her find it and she'll know what to do.

Wonder if we can recommend some for him. What are you interested in doing with Kira ?
