Hogan quit. He doesn't seem to give a rat's hiney about it!
I suppose he could be ill, but no sign of it. I do have a couple of females who may be coming in to season.
Motivation? Perhaps he needs more. I have been adding his toy at the end to try to increase his interest. He is not a super high drive dog, but really, he is more dog than many are and I don't think he doesn't have enough to do a bit Of tracking!
He completely blew off the idea today and went to pee on a tree. Okay, I own some patience, but not a ton. Arrrgh. I have to admit I was really aggravated and rather unable to take a step back and say, "hmmm, would you look at that, what's going on?"
Later, I did put some pressure on him on a short easy track. I have been told many times that you can't "make" a dog track. Leave it to me to try the pressure thing. Not sure what the fallout will be. But, he accepted the pressure, put his nose down and made it to the article. I know such can make liars out of them. I probably did not do the right thing. But, really, Hogan, lie to me!!!! Don't just honestly go pee on a tree!
I suck at training sometimes!
