Had a issue that pops up every now and then, but not all the time ! But it does concern me, and not sure if there is a fix or something she will eventually work through ?
We are transitioning to cold blinds, and had this issue show up once again this morning! I go through my blind sequence, make sure she is lined up with tail, spine, head and eyes! She seems to be locked on, or locked as good as I would expect a dog transitioning to cold blinds (Not trying to nit pick over great lines at this point) But seems to me she is telling me she has her "picture" I kick her off and she will run straight for 5 or 10 yards and then veer left or right !
My fix at this point has just been a quick whistle sit, and a cast to get her back on line, and she will usually take a good cast back on line, but will usually start to veer off in the direction she veered on the initial line.
I am making sure (without taking to much time nit picking on lining her up) that she and " I " are lined up but seems she's telling me one direction, and then takes another !
Her spine and head does not move, and I have started in the last 3 weeks to really pay attention to her eyes, and she seems to give no indication that when the veer off line does occur that she is keyed on anything else other than the line she is indicating to me !
Not sure if this is a possible bad habit that may be arising, or is this just an issue that shows up in alot of other dogs starting cold blinds ? Just don't want this to get out of hand, or become a habit if it's something I can correct !
And yes I want to say again cause I know this will be a response! (I am making 100% sure that she is lined up Tail, Spine, Head, and Eyes) unless she's looking cross eyed her eyes are peering forward!
