RPC Posted February 19, 2012 Report Share Posted February 19, 2012 My partner Huck is approximately 1.5 yrs old, we are new together (Aug. 2011). He is a working Goose Dog (Kuykendall Kennels NC, and works with me at an urban cemetery in Boston (300 acres)He is very effective at his job, although he will break after bicyclists and joggers and disregard his call-off command. This frightens me (not to mention the bicyclists or joggers, and I don't want to see anyone get hurt including Huck. Does anyone have any advice to correct this behavior or suggestions on reenforcing his commands; Which are: That'll Do, Here, Down amongst others. I have been thinking about also introducing whistle commands to the mix, maybe to "penetrate the surrounding noise, commotion and grab his attention at a distance. I am a new handler and this is my first BC. Other than that we are closely bonded. He also doesn't like it when people approach a vehicle (golf cart or truck)in which he is sitting when we are out and about the property. thanks, Rich Email me Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
