Looking good. A little piece of unsolicited advice. Give your dog time to complete the exercises. You are chaining them together a little too quick. For instance, you recall the dog and it comes front but butt is not all the way down, you call to heel and reward before the dog completes the action. This is going to lead to a dog that will do 3/4 of the behavior for you. I learned to take a breathe and count to three once the dog has completed the exercise before I ask it to do something else.

Overall judging from the progress you are doing great! Just trying to keep you from headaches later.

Nice job! Work on making sure your dogs butt is all the way on the ground. The "hover butt" can really hurt you later on. My wife and our dog Heidi lost 19 points in a trial because of the hover butt

Very nice Liz&Anna. Remember to not recall from sit, walk back to the dog and reward over her head, butt will get planted, also reward at stationery positions for example when you call to heel, reward without moving forward, will help. Super progress, keep it up.

Thanks, I try and rotate what I do, some times recall sometimes return to dog, I guess I need to be more patient with it, I need to remember to breathe lol
