    Yeah. Because she has that looong body that from the top looking down, it's tough to see. She seems to have 20 different ways to both obey and creep at the same time. In training we've dealt with...

    That was the reason for the post. I think it's a matter of trust. This dog is a creeper and at this time, (in training) I think I have to insist on 100%. OMG... if we ever got to the point where...

    You did the right thing, not running him the next day. Some dogs (like mine) get so amped, you have to decompress them between HT's with some solid training.

    Yikes! Not sure what kind of winger you're using, but some of those babies can go off pretty easy. I'd worry about my dog losing an eye or an ear!
