Everyday in the last week Boris has disappeared into the bushes or off the Tarka trails and returned with a ball, some days he has found one on the morning walk and one on the evening walk. Balls this week, football,baseball, numerous tennis balls and 2 foam balls. If Boris finds a ball he will chase it for all the walk, if I bring a ball he only shows an interest in it for half a dozen throws. Boris is almost 2 and I think the training is beginning to pay off, he no longer rushes off to dogs, most times I can call him away, his recall is getting better, on the Tarka Trail he ignores bikes, usually I call him to come and sit but if I don't see the bike he ignores it ass it whizzes past.Joggers and walkers still a work in progress, he ignores most walkers, but if they speak to him he occasionally jumps up, joggers he still thinks they need some encouragement and so would like to run after them. So persevere with the training and one day it will all come together. I have just started agility for fun and think this is helping with concentrating on watching me and not being distracted by other dogs.
