Took my girl to her first picnic trial today. The birds were stinkie the set up was even stinkier. So disappointed. She had been improving so much in training and now I dont know how far she has been set back. Now I am not blaming all on the test, I have a mirror, but in my opinion junior dogs should not have to deal with mass confusion.
Anyway the road home was long and I have decided that this game is too expensive to just get ones big toe wet. I've decided to hang up my Amish hat and go electric. I've made up my mind that collar training is kinder than a heeling stick or other amish methods. Besides what I've been doing isn't working and I would like her to get at least a junior title before she turns twelve (shes 3) and while I can still walk without a cane.
So here is my question- what do I do with my girl while awaiting delivery of my new collar?
