So as you may have read in previous threads, titan, my 2 y/o GSD is progressing very very well. We do a small controled search in the beginning of training and move to a larger search area in the woods after he rests. Well now that we are in the woods there are many more distractions. He is good with almost all of them.. will perk up at a squirrel/animal/etc, but if I am paying attention, which is all the time, and I catch him in time and say "leave it" he will and no problems. Yesterday he did something that I wasn't sure how to take. He took off in the middle of our search to play in the stream. Now it was hot. He had water a good few times. But I know he loves loves loves water. I calle dhim back and he came and continued the search and within minutes had a find. Should I be worried about this? What are some things I can do to help him not get so distracted. My team has of course suggested things and they are wonderful, just wondering what some of you might have to say.
