Sorry, I’m going to be a pain and keep stalking your websites, Silvia! I just downloaded the DVD in preparation for the long distance course, and I’m really excited to get started (need to get myself a better tunnel I think)- I was working a bit with restraints with her last night and (it’s really, really hot here at the moment so that doesn’t help) she just sort of, watches- doesn’t try and pull forward. When I let go, she’ll pounce and play but I don’t get that ‘restrain’ & high drive forward yet- do you think that restrained recalls would possibly help? Maybe restrained recalls to a toy? She’s useless in a harness because she hates the feel of it on her body and shuts down, so she’ll have to just pull on her collar I guess. I was trying to click and release last night when she pulled forward… so maybe just keep doing that?
Sure, you can try restrained recalls first! You can also try applying a pressure yourself and then click&reward for resistance if she doesn’t actively pull forward -- resistance is just as good! You can of course use a collar instead of a harness, whatever she prefers!
Puppy class is on break; Foundations isn’t open yet; DVD is not here yet -- I am suffering withdrawals LOL . DVD sounds wonderful. It is soooo hard to wait 🙂 😉 I just had to make a comment 🙂
🙂 Just imagine how busy you’ll be with DVDs coming in and the class starting again! 🙂
DVD not only sounds wonderful, it is wonderful 🙂 I enjoy each minute watching it, and I now I will watch it again and again 🙂
🙂 Great, very happy to hear you found it interesting also after taking the class already!
now I’m through, but I could not find the pdf-file with the course-map.
You should put the dvd into computer and then open the dvd in the file explorer. The maps are in the course maps folder. Found?
I found it. Thank you 🙂
know not now
Hi Silvia, I like this DVD so much! Again new tips for training, thank you! I have a new puppy, little unplanned, but I couldn’t resist, he is really funny 🙂 We started with tricks and now we are waiting for spring, this winter wasn’t good for outdoor activity with a small puppy. Can’t wait:-)
Great -- thank you for the feedback! And happy to meet your puppy, he does look special -- very fast and intense for such a young puppy! And oh so cute! 🙂
I have a year old sheltie puppy. I have been working on throwing one ball one direction and then throwing the second ball the other direction as shown in the dvd. He will chase the balls but will not pick them up. This is difficult as it requires going to fetch the balls for him, which disrupts the game, and loses his focus, and adds a lot of extra time to the sessions. After the second ball is thrown, he also trots back as there is nothing else to chase. Is there anything I can do to encourage him to pick up the balls?
Will he pick it up if you use just one ball? If so, start a game with just one ball and then add a 2nd one unexpectedly and not after every toss, but only here and there. If not, focus on a ball on a string game for now, have him chase and grab that and mix in some tugging, so that grabbing and holding the toy gets fun as well, not just chasing. Once there, go to tossed ball and then add a 2nd one as described, making it unpredictable if the 2nd one will appear or not. Hope that helps!
