JakodaCD OA I have used a clicker with my aussies which they are pretty responsive to.

I love the book Clicking w/your dog by Peggy Tilman..easy easy breakdown of teaching different behaviors with a clicker.

As for treats, well mine will eat anything, but find something really yummy and use ONLY for training...frozen meatballs, (I nuke a few, squeeze out the liquid, cut in tiny pieces),,,string cheese, "zukes" which you can buy in petstores...Using biscuits/their food is not enough of an incentive, you want something high value.

My aussies, will spin,(both ways), sit, weave between my legs, high five, crawl, stay, down, 'touch' things..which I then incorporate in every day training..Granted my aussies right now are seniors so they can do whatever they want at thispoint in their lives

Are you using food as a motivator/reward in your training? if not, I suggest it..my aussies are really food motivated..

When I first got my aussie, I thought "oh boy",,my gsd's were 100 times easier, easier to train, alot of biddability, if they didn't have an off switch as puppies they got crated at times...They aussies LOVE to jump..

You have a puppy, I recommend getting into an obedience class NOW. Doesn't have to be someone 'into' herding dogs, a good trainer will do.

Aussies LOVE trick training, I turned alot of 'tricks' into obedience, they like FUN, mine respond very poorly to any negative training..

Hopefully the gsd in her will show up ))
Isnt that the truth about the aussie (at least what i have seen from adrians part ) its what i call stubbornness cuz sometimes shes like im tired of the taste of that treat so im done (i need to start up the pet bakery i run from home sooner than feb i guess so can have different treat flavors lol) so we are done working.

What are some activities, games, etc that you play/do with your aussies that they tend to gravitate more towards?

Im in a really small town so ya now if i want to drive an hr thats different but isnt ideal for me and she tends to get car sick sometimes so dont want to make her go through that just for training.

I wouldn't let the pup get too much older without introducing some obedience and control.
What is your general location, maybe someone knows someone who knows someone that can help you!
I would mind doing something like that at a park etc. but im in ohio and during winter it gets cold and adrian is okay in it but if its to cold her attention span can be pretty short unless ur on a walk and then she doesnt seem to care to much.

I did contact someone that would do it indoors but way out of our price. I even offered to clean their place and other odd end things in exchange to bring the price down even if it was more then once but it was a no (the trainer thinks she is gods gift to dog training but i figured id still try to get into something)
