Wow, I love it - that's got to be my most favorite line ever, lol! I also take the long scenic route with some things. Ah why not: in the grand scheme of things, some issues need to be addressed immediately but other things can be tweaked and dealt with at a later date.

Thanks for posting the fun video of your awesome pup! Just curious - how would that look without the 2 mile run before hand? I notice with my guy, there's quite a difference in the before and after of a nice expenditure, lol.

vprasad My boy is also 11 months old and its surprising how similar they are, obedience wise at least . I don't even need a leash to take him out anymore, but yeah I use the leash. Mostly because the people walking by can have a peace of mind .

I mean I get that, but if you want to show the dog a more normal picture with your hands at your side just tuck that bad boy into a hoodie pocket or something and then slight of hand magic that sucker into existence.

Its called focused/completion heeling. Someone with more experience could probably tell you the steps to get there. With my pup I just free shaped it and marked the desire behavior. There are many ways to train something and what I did was probably taking the long scenic route.

He isn't hunting for it so it just seems unnecessary. He might be expending some brain power wondering what's going on behind your back too.

Baillif You have a really nice engaged dog. Not sure why you hide the ball arms behind your back like that as it doesn't seem like he would go for it if you just held it at your side or just put it in your pocket or tuck it into your pants. He isn't hunting for it so it just seems unnecessary. He might be expending some brain power wondering what's going on behind your back too.
