last night we worked on down. beamer was pretty upset that we were making her be so submissive. the trainer suggested dh do down with her to perfect it before i do it, since we are unbalanced (him so strong with her, me not strong enough). she did it every time, but it took a little bit of force & a whole lot of hot dog praise. =P then at the end of class she started to pee on the floor! the trainer said it was cause of stress, which is why we stopped early, but i was so embarassed. thats the second time shes ever peed inside. next week is our review & last class, & if weve got down pretty good then he'll show us down in motion.
he said two months of no class, just us working with her on leash & we can go back for off leash. we want to do everything with her, tracking, agility, etc. & he does all those classes, so i'm excited, but sad to see it be over so soon.
