Tips For High Drive Dogs
Keeping focus when the brain is moving on all thrusters.
Keeping vocalization to a minimun, not really barking, but yodeling.
Helping not forget his very solid training and getting so excited he jumps up on me?
Managing his excitement at trials as he feels all the adrenaline around him and it sends him over the top.
Suggestions I got at the obedience trial. ---
No corrections just ramps him up more (it does, I tried it)
Coming up with things to keep him on his toes and thinking and not just the same exercises. spice it up every day.
Proof the heck out of him.
Make him think about his task so much he has not got the time to think about where to go with his drive.
Go to every match I can find and keep putting him in the environment until it is very blase to him.
No tug at trials as a reward, ramps him up more.
Exercise, exercise, exercise. ( I walked him over 11 miles and played fetch for 30 minutes at a time several times)
