Guest Tom L Posted December 18, 2005 Report Share Posted December 18, 2005 My 8 yr old female (just moved up into Ranch) started as a tight outrunner. With time and training she now widens out nicely most of the time, except for the 1st time on strange sheep - which means, of course, at trials! At one trial this season with an uphill outrun she just ran straight up the middle. I tried a redirect, but she was (and often is) "locked-in". I'm concerned that if I push her overly wide in training, she'll lose contact. It seems like she's defaulting back to her inclination to run tight with the stress of a trial. Once she's doing her fetch, she's terrific and handles the rest of her runs very nicely. Is there anything I can do to relax her on new sheep?
