Re: Poor Doc, more control work.......
Thanks Val! I know what you are saying because it's something I've worked through personally.
I was comparing this group of pictures with ones from about a month ago and I *think* his body language is a lot more relaxed. I know that generally I can get an out of him now with a second command and a verbal and just touching his collar, almost like a "hey Doc, remember me? The big dummy on the other side of the leash"....LOL
We did the two sleeve exercise with him last week and you should of seen his eyeballs darting from sleeve to sleeve, like where's the trick here, this is just too easy....
We are making progress. I had three clean outs on the first and only command this week AND more importantly I really liked how he settled in on the other field even knowing his decoy was present. And I had a girl in heat and another girl that lived at the field was being bred that day.
We are taking a rally class believe it or not and I think doing an ob venue with no bite work present is really helping him. The lessons are at a kennel so he is becoming very neutral to other dogs, puppies, lots of distractions.
I think we will be able to get the Rally novice on him soon. What a hoot that's going to be!
