First the good bits. Heel on leash is coming along nicely. Introduced some distractions today – mainly my other 6 dogs who on cue barked and howled because they were stuck behind the fence and not out training with me and Miss Quma. I’ve found the introduction of the release “free” has been an enormous success and useful tool. Such a simple but powerful thing. Wish I’d thought of it 🙂 Continues to perform an good sit/stay/come etc but down continues to be a challenge. She needs the lure of a treat and even then it can be hard going. She quite often gets down slightly to one side too. We had a quick try of heeling off leash (minus distractions). This was ok although she did sometimes lag behind a bit but was easily brought up to heel when asked.
