She does remind me a lot of Willow in some of your comments, and yes games are definately the way forward for her,which reminds me JulieT mentioned a good book I need to track down. Bramble has given me some good examples of being able to generalise and link an action with an object in a different setting. Some things though she really is struggling with, the concept of a prolonged sit..she is desperate to please but gets very anxious when she doesn't understand...rephrase that...when my technique sucks! I haven't yet tried the Whipit, although it has been on my mind. The main reason is I really need to do it right, and I am worried about her flying and twisting herself, she is not good at self regulating when it comes to jumping off/at things, and I have had a few heart in mouth moments already! When I used the Whipit with Benson it was more random flinging it around! Benson loved it though! Something to mention to SWMBO..
