    Default Rowdy (by Pirate) Casting to back pile

    Rowdy casting to the back pile. Not all sessions go this smoothly. We had to have a slight attitude adjustment this morning. Then things went smoothly. Eye contact was much better since my distration (CLF running the fence) was not there.

    ML, I'm not sure how to reply to photobucket comments. Each time I hit the reply button it did some funny things. Rowdy is not quite seven months. He auto cast on me only once, the next to last send. At this point I didn't want to stop him as he may get confused.

    I got a refusal this morning and had to apply pressure. That is probably why he was so eager to go. Right now go is more important. Edit: And right now he is still getting lots of body english to emphasis the cast.

    I am sorry, I am going to be the bad guy here. using ropes is old school, The dog end's up with a sloppy sit and no visual to adapted to. I would go with place board training by Jim Dobbs.

    Previously I used a placeboard but abandoned it when I went to Lardy. I haven't noticed any difference in the sit.

    TS, The only part of your post I understood was to ask Gooser. I don't know if that's such a good ideal. LOL!

    Sorry Gooser I couldn't help that. LOL, again.

    Now there's a role reversal! Place boards for this is not only very old, but I believe inferior to rope use. To each his/her own, of course, but the rope provides surer control with very little pressure.

    While the rope is used for several reasons my understanding is that the rope in this drill is used to teach the dog not to shop the pile. Pick up one and return promptly.

    Now I'm confused...Ropes are old school -- and Dobbs is NEW and FORWARD looking???



    "Ask gosser. Lardy is incomplete and move you to asked for help. Witch in turn has you calling him. Good markeing."

    Keith



    As if average Joe calls Lardy he will solve their problems on the phone???? I think not.


    As far as: Oh Mike I can't figure this part of TRT out would you mind taking my dog and fixing it ?? Good luck with that.

    Marketing: Last I knew Mike wasn't hurting for dogs.

    Wayne: If you insist on using the rope with a 50 pound puppies I might consider gloves


    BTW: You're doing a fine job with Rowdy (By Pirate)


    PS: Keith nothing personal but I just can't see comparing Dobbs with Lardy.
