Great session with Quma. She has been trained in basic obedience but I’ve had issues with a couple of things. She wasn’t keen on “stay” if I walked too far or waited to long for the recall but wouldn’t “come” if I left her leash on. Today we were practising walking to heel (on leash). I gave the command stay giving just a short twitch on the leash to reinforce and carried on walking. She stopped perfectly. I walked about 50 feet away, sat down and didn’t make eye contact with her for at least a minute. I then called her over and jackpot rewarded her as she had overcome two obstacles in one go. We repeated variations of that exercise another 3 times and then I left it for today. Still having some problems with the “down”. She needs visual cues each time and 99% of the time a lure in the form of a treat to get down. I may have a 10 minute session just on the down to see if I can isolate what I’ve done wrong with this. Heeling on leash is great. She is coping with changes in speed and direction really well.
