Lenajo Posted June 22, 2007 Report Share Posted June 22, 2007 All amusement about trolls aside, I am training my pup in both SAR and herding. I haven't found any conflict, even with a 9 month old puppy. I don't openly challange her by asking her to track through sheep, but I am establishing clear commands about what is happening when. If we go into a pasture and I ask her to look for sheep, she snaps right to it. If I show her a scent article and say "find it", tshe then hen settled in to use her nose she is right on the track. Anyway, where I am hitting a mental wall is how to explain the difference to her between Agility (which is fast as you can, a game) and SAR agility obstacles like shown on another topic (which I want her to take slowly and safely above all). Anybody got any ideas? SAR handlers? I am not with a formal group yet, but I am training with a retired FEMA handler privately. side note, I think there are limitless possibilites to the mind of a well bred working BC. It never ceaseW to amaze me..... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
