Guest WoobiesMom Posted October 15, 2007 Report Share Posted October 15, 2007 Despite a trying week cooped in the house and no practicing whatsoever, my Woobie tested out of Level 3 in obedience on Saturday ahead of all the other dogs in our training academy. The place I go to is new and had only been operating about a month or two when we joined. Woobie had spent months in Level 2 because he couldn't manage distractions. Then suddenly seemed to get it and has progressed really rapidly. The Level 3 at this place is a heel at 3 different paces, sitting when halted, quick reliable down, left turn heel, right turn heel, about turn heel and a 30 ft. recall (with a drag line, I'm still paranoid w/him). He's now ready to begin work on some of the CGC tests (meeting a friendly stranger will be our biggest hurdle I'm sure) and start thinking seriously about competitive obedience. He still swings wide and sits at about a 90 degree angle to me most of the time when halting. Any ideas for getting him to stick closer?
