    I look forward to it.

    Thanks Rosie for your input, very helpful. It's the way for me to go, as I started out all those months ago and then got lazy. one thing Cassie has got is a reliable sit.:) Although of course there is always the odd exception.

    Thought of you and Cassie @selina27 yesterday when out in the garden with Red. I realised I have started using my clicker when asking her to walk to heel when I am doing some training in the garden. She is not on her lead. Don't really know why I have started this other than it being a precise way of letting her know she is doing what I ask. I don't take the clicker out with me on walks but the trainer at the Scentwork classes we are going to is encouraging us to us the clicker.

    @Atemas interested to know how a clicker is being used in a Scentwork class.
    Apologies @selina27 for 'going off piste' on your thread :)

    We do Scentwork and targeted work. Clicker is used when dog has found the cloth hidden in tyres or plastic tube. Clicker is used when stepping, placing paw/leg on a variety of objects - don't know what these are called but nobbly foot pads, squishy balls - trainer calls one a peanut if that is it's real name or he calls it that.
