So I am about one week in on FF and seem like I am doing well but I also finding myself that I am needing to use A LOT more pressure than needed to get the response needed... I will explain where I am:
This pup can take A LOT of pressure and seem to find that I get very little results using lower pressure even when collar conditioning. The pup I had last year this time was CC on level 1 at times 2, this pup is on a 3 sometime 4 and get the best and snappiest results from him.
When FF I am following Lardys programs and find that I am at a good point to start walking fetch with ear pinch but the problem I am running into and have been running into this whole week is that anytime I lightly pinch his ear he reaches and grabs it off the ground with no urgency and spits it out once he grabs it... anytime I use the finger nail with a little more pressure he reaches out quick and holds on like he never wants to let it out of his mouth but also whines a little but am getting the response needed... Do I continue on like this? Again I feel everything is going well and he is starting to understand more of what I am asking but I just dont like pinching his this much...??? Thoughts
I know Lardy doesn't CC until he has completed FF but I found this to work for me so before anyone says to follow the flow chart the way he has it and am fully aware of it and am following everything else after FF and CC.
