    I hope for at least 10 - 20 times of that.

    He snaps to a sit now.

    I think that is as good as I can do for now.

    Any advice???

    Ease up on the throttle and go do some blind work, or you may burn him up by getting him rolling so high..take Friday off, even Elvis needs a day off now and then...One Advil may cure a headache, a whole bottle may kill ya

    And if he doesn't break, I will be the happiest guy in the world.

    Considering this dog got bounced in his first AKC JH test due to line manners.
    (which was last May)

    It's too cold to do much training up here. The 4 adults have long walks on the property and chase wild rabbits. The dogs are about as wild as you can get and I'm looking forward to start training. Looks like I'll have to work on OB for a while.

    The 2 Scottish pups love the snow and they get 2 long walks per day. They head for the rabbit trails and go nuts. Another month and they will be 4 mths old that's when I introduce them to the pack. Right now they are just the way I like them Strong, healthy and about as wild as you can get.

    Good Luck Team Elvis!!!
    I'll be thinking of you in the morning as I am shoveling the fresh 12 inches we are getting. Sugar Snow, we call it.

    Whether you get a ribbon or not, you're there.

    And that makes you......the winner!

    Good luck Stan and Elvis

    Oh man, so sorry to hear. I completely feel your pain. Take a few deep breaths, go for a long fun hike with Elvis, then start again. Its all ya can do.
    PS: I think this is why they do not allow live weapons at tests or trials
