More training with Bramble. Working on the stop whistle is slow progress indeed! She adores her flying lotus ball, so I popped a bit of cooked sausage and threw that which worked quite well. Built up a bit of excitement first with hand touch, gets her treat ball, sit..gets her treat ball. Filled with high value treats and this seemed to help. So we are making progress with sit stay, and managing a minute now. Today we were in a different more public place, to see how she manages the sit stay, she did quite well, despite the new and interesting environment. To make it easier for her I asked for less duration, and stayed close to her. We also worked a bit on steadiness, although she hasn't a huge drive to retrieve, I feel this may change, especially seeing how she excited she was in the scurry last week! A video clip of a couple of retrieves, with me asking her to wait until released. Just wish I had worked more on this with Benson! Bramble in a sit stay...with her grommit face!
