Hmm. Thanks a lot. Lots to think about. Going to a class definitely focuses my mind on practising during the week so that's also a factor in deciding whether to carry on-as they say, turning up is the best training tool you have. It's a toss up between that and compromising a bit maybe on training techniques although I must say some pretty major alarm bells were ringing when he said it was fine to recall your dog lots of times if she doesn't come first time. Thankfully Vespa never gave me the need to do that. Good dog. (and I wouldn't have) Thanks for all the thoughts.
