RoseAmy Posted June 19, 2009 Report Share Posted June 19, 2009 Hi Carol, This is along the lines of the exercise you were discussing in the last question. My pup is now 11 months and coming along fine. The only real problems ( and I say that in a good way) is her good old stock sense gets in the way sometimes.. She has a great stop, knows her flanks reads sheep like a book.. The trouble is if i ask her to do something that is against that stock sense. It's a battle to get her to accept my way. Let's just say she's very biddable until she thinks I've lost my stock sense and then feels she should take things into her own hands. Example if the sheep are facing left and I want to send her way she has a fit and wants to go come bye. She hates giving up their heads. I've been doing the exercise with the flanks on the fence that you explained to Ragtimedog. It's going fine until that final stop between sheep and fence--way outside her comfort zone any hints for raising the comfort zone? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
