"she runs like hell in a straight line, satisfied that I am firmly in the driver's seat. Strange dog!"
Good Dog!!!! What must it be like to have one with that conviction?
Kristie, what a great explanation! I think I heard most of it at one of your retreats, but didn't really have enough knowledge at the time to understand it. Now that I am "there" its crystal clear! Funny how that works.
"Do you use any kind of marker to help the dog learn to look way out there?"
Stephen, I like your questions. I have used a white bucket at the end of a long channel blind and it did help define "keep going to the end of the water" but did not repeat that more than once. What can we do to get the dog to look FAR in a featureless field? All that wide open space confuses him.
