dsmbc Posted September 4, 2014 Report Share Posted September 4, 2014 I am a beginner with a young dog. right now I am struggling with how to help my dog understand the difference of when I am asking for a full flank vs quarter flanks, etc. when I want a full flank, I have been drawing out comand saying the full "away to me" or "come bye" and have shortened it to just "way" or "come" when we want it shorter. he has been doing a good job for the most part with inside and off balance flanks, but when we work on them, he stops short on his outruns and doesn't go behind the sheep. Or when working figure eights, he will not continue around when I ask if we have been doing a lot of partial flanks. I really think it is lack of understanding of the difference. I was wondering what folks do to help their dog know when to go all the way around vs part way. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
