I’d love to, long term, do IPO with him but for the moment I just want an obedient dog, we do run a working farm so he will work somewhat as an aside.
I’m really training him at the moment because we’re still waiting on vaccs to go out so he’s bored with what limited exercise I can give and this is what we can do to zonk him out.
The snap is my novice way of trying to describe the down I’ve witnessed. They almost concertina backwards into the down, whereas he’s butt first and inch down.
I’m glad that can be worked on, if it is not “correct” per se, was concerned that he’d learn it wrong and it’d be impossible to correct if need be.
