    How old is the dog and is it pressure conditioned?

    You can simply lead a pressure conditioned dog from front sit into position using a fence or wall to keep them close to you, releasing the...

    Thanks for your many years of dedication to the resource Chris. I've been involved in a transition to verticalscope in the past. No big deal

    Short of a placement (not a jam) in a field trial, I would never sacrifice training to pass a test. Do the battle and take your lumps. Remember, there are 4 marks, 2 blinds and a bunch of line manner...

    In that case we had set him up deliberately to do it because he had been popping on channel blinds.

    No, not at all - Swimming the channel took out the main factor of the blind.

    I still haven't figured out how Brett's dog is to learn not to pop in the field rather than in the yard/swim-by pond. Why are we encouraging him to teach a single skill (don't stop unless I ask you...

    you'd probably find that if you called that dog back in 9 out of 10 times for a while and rewarded him on his way back, that he'd stop a lot faster, but who the heck am I?

    I assume you mean 14 weeks? Scat mat would be my first solution.

    I would strongly recommend you let Joe direct your effort here and not get advice (as good as it is) from people who have never seen your dog. It's one thing for people without a good mentor but you...

    One of the problems with furniture and a big dog is that they can see the scat mat and learn that it's there (or not there) - helping them make decisions about where to put their paws. Sometimes they...

    If you want input though - put out a third pile up the middle and send him to that one 8 out of 10 sends without stopping him for a while... He sounds like he's just anticipating a cast in that...

    Your mentor, if you're working with Clammy or Eschert - should be able to help you with this.

    No need to "cut losses" on this super simple behavior problem. You can use a $35 scat mat that is 100% consistent and requires no "catching them in the act". You can buy a disc/collar set up that...

    Doc - your dog but if a collar correction inhibited the behavior for a year, how was that not effective? Each subsequent repetition will increase the duration until it becomes a permanent mindset.

    Not disagreeing with Dennis by asking this - he's far more experienced than me and yes, you can put the dog on an absolutely solid foundation and then have something come up when you try to...

    This ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I would absolutely remote camera his ass - it'll take about 3 reps with the collar turned all of the way up

    anyone else think there is a potential hole in Brett's swim-by if he's getting this response?

    She's a cutie Hugh. The dog interaction at that level is usually "curable" through proper socialization but it's a lot of work with a dog her age. You're doing great by her. Good on you.

    It's not upbeat for a reason Hugh. You have to always keep in mind what the breed was originally created and bred for - for a century or more before they became "pets". They're not a fav of the inner...

    First off - very kind of you Hugh! Biggest issue by far is making sure the dog is well socialized and gets tons and tons of positive exposure to both people and other dogs. They're all over the board...

    You're gonna want to play with him near the area where the problem occurred. If he likes to retrieve then do that NEARBY - not through the doorway, right away. Use the fact that he's distracted and...

    I'm just playing with the lowly pet dog but if you knew how many times I say "just wait" in a week you would think I had it written on the brim of my hat or something.
