This makes me so happy!!!!Going to a flat folder can also help with that transition. But I'm betting you wo'nt need to do anything at all you're next session after a quick warm up :)And then on to side stepping!!!
Thank you Laura! I am really getting into this obedience thing... :) I am even signing up to audit Denise Fenzi's Precision Heeling.
It makes me so happy to see Stout "catch on" -- Great work, Merinda!
That is too funny, I'm writing a post about the same thing tonight! Stout is looking awesome!! So cool when they start to really get it. Is that an upside down dog bowl as a perch? I'll have to try that -- been struggling to find a suitable object but that bowl looks perfect.
Good thinking with the bridge from bowl to floor! I see you're not using the pocket hand, are you skipping that due to working with a short dog?
