    Hi Chris,

    Welcome to the website!

    To answer your questions

    You can start training anytime. A few things to take into consideration:

    Make sure that you have read through the triangle in the self help section.
    If she is distracted inside check what your using to motivate her ( are the treats or toy valuable to her)?
    What do you do to exercise her? This is a high energy breed, and if she doesn’t get a outlet for her restless spirit she will not be able to focus on training.

    You can use any space to train. The exercises that may require more space is the heelcommahe recal still manage these inside (heel around the dining room table) . Before you practice in the yard make sure she is doing well with no distraction inside. eAlso making sure she is exercised first and is motivated by whatever reward you offer.

    In order to be ready to use a correction collar , she must have first completed phase 1 exercises. I would recommend a Starmark collar , which is a plastic version of a pinch collar. This offers mild correction. In order to use the collar properly make sure to watch the phase 2 videos.

    I hope this helps!

    Best,
