Zena has accomplished all of phase two training except for heel. We are working on a place to work on it, we do not have an area large enough to practice without distraction and the areas that we found that are large enough are filled with distractions. We have worked on heel while me and my other half go work horses, considering Zena has no interest in horses, since she has grown up with them since she was 5 months. But that only happens for a few minutes twice a week. All the other commands are solid even with most distractions, unless a squeak toy is involved.


  1. That’s great! Make sure she knows her “escape conditioning” well before moving on to phase 3. If you have any questions before moving on let us know!
