Mr. B makes me smile. He's a little loose in the back end when he sits, but he's very eager to please his daddy. You guys are great!
Things are coming along!Well my friends - Mr. B and headed to the basement training grounds - again . I can not say How much I love him working with me on my Rally OB - God knows - I sure do need it ! He is so patience with me : ) My knee is lots better but still not working 100 % : )
Now for the video - When we started - the furnace came on - that's what he is looking at - so we started over :grin2: - You know at was a very good thing = distraction ! it was on the whole time so he got use to it . Things like that could trip you up in ring .
Fire away ! I need the advice - I'm going to get the on-line training and see if that helps me out .
Enjoy Mr. Business training me :grin2:
That yawn in dogs is a sign of stress.I love his yawn at the beginning! It's like, ho hum....have to take the human on a walk. LOL
You can do it to the right as well--just remember for you to lead off with the left leg and if you are asking for a stay--you lead off with the right.LDI - You sure are right about the left foot lead - 6-7 brought that out the last video - But I'm a SLOW learner ! I did work on it - yet failed when it was how time - I will work on that more !
Left square is a problem for me = my right knee problem - but it is getting a little better and hope to improve that too ! :grin2:
Looks like Mr B is doing well!
Did have a question - couldn't tell but do you give verbal commands or is this all on queues?
At the end made me smile when he tried to grab the leash as if to say hey wait we aren't done are we :grin2: But I am a bit tired since I was yawning :2smile:
I finally got a chance to watch it. And yeah, it's hard to train when you are ouchie. Especially when the advice about to be given is "try walking a little faster, and see if that also speeds up his responses to your cues".
One thing that you can do is try being a bit more aware of where your head and shoulders are facing, since a lot of heeling is reading body cues you are giving off. For example, looking to the left and pulling your left shoulder back slightly is part of the "left turn" cue, not just stepping off with the left foot.
Also, you keep the leash pretty tight, still. What happens if you try working off lead?
I did find it impressive however. Most people pull up the more common and easiest spelling of a pair of homophones. "Queue" is definitely a more unusual way to spell that sound than "cue" is. LOLI posted my post then headed off to Lowes to pick up some items I needed to work on trim around the shower. As I was driving for some reason my mind said cue not queue, silly......and I was not really thinking about DT forum :nerd:
