An education

Recommended Posts

I'm training my youngster for competitive obedience just as a secondary string to our bow and because he is too young for proper agility training. Tbh I've never found it particularly satisfying with other dogs but I'm rather enjoying it because Risk is a natural. Actual training is minimal.


However, today I thought I had a problem that I would have to train out as he was almost sitting on left turns. Erm no, no retraining of the dog needed, just me.


With my other dogs "In" has served as a cue to swivel the rear end in close, whether on the move or for a finish. Worked very well.


Obviously not so with Risk who has decided that it means tuck in and sit. As soon as I stopped saying "in" on left turns he stopped trying to sit.


Stupid me, but I'm glad I realised so soon.
