I need amongst lots of other things, to work on steadying Flora, my ESS (sorry not a lab and she is 31/2 :-[! )She is a mad keen on chasing and hunting... I take her beating and she is not steady to the flush...embarrassing....:-[ ....Other than game, thrown tennis balls are the one big thing that motivates her, food she can take or leave. She is perfectly happy to sit and wait looking bored when I chuck dummies around her and really doesn't want to retrieve them...her face says "why bother it's not likely to run or fly"..but not balls, she will retrieve them whether as marked or blinds so I thought they would make the good reward as part of clicker training her to control her impulse to chase.... So if I tell her to wait, throw the ball a short distance and click for the wait then send her out for the ball as the reward gradually building up the distance...should that work? If she goes for ithe ball when not sent and brings it back do I just take it with no acknowledgement and then repeat till she does the correct behaviour and then always finish the exercise on a correct behaviour too?Am I barking up the wrong tree and would there be a better way to approach his altogether?
