    That is a good question duck. I too am curious what others would say is the next step. I'm thinking traffic cop may be next followed by fetch then land and water.

    The ARC collar arrived the other day. It fits very well and is very light. The fit is great on my dog and doesn't flop around on her like some of the bigger receivers. I'm glad the collar has...
