    I would personally look at the Edge RT. I am not a fan of the rheostat because it causes you to have to take your eyes off the dog and look at the LCD display in order to go up or down. I feel that...

    I guess I'm confused too. If you are not worried about momentum why not call back for a poor initial line in training? Like the captain said, if I'm not worried about momentum I'm going to get my...

    IMO one of the most often overlooked things in CC is the freebie. To get the dog to fully understand the concept of turning off pressure with quick compliance it is my belief that you must get out of...

    I would consider shortening things up and running the Y drill to help her differentiate which side of the gun the mark was thrown on.

    All of the advice that has been given is great especially having your dog on lead to control his actions during CC. The other pearl that I would offer is that this type of behavior is very common and...

    Don't fret. This is common when transitioning to the ground. Reach down and push on the tab of the bumper with your fingers to lift it off the ground slightly. This will get pup picking it up off the...

    A good method to use to stop pulling is to counteract it. Your dog is old enough to start using other aversives other than the chain. Start putting pressure on the sit command either with stick or...
