    Default Rowdy (by Pirate) Stop on whistle enroute to pile

    Rowdy stopping enroute to the pile. He gave me a little crooked sit so I staighted it out.


    He will stop directly in front of the pile. So we are ready to move on. This morning he was giving me all kind of trouble flaring from the chair. I moved up closer and it went away. I thought I had this straightened out but it came back. He hasn't had any pressure at the flair point and just started doing this today. The flair is from the right side send only. See attached video. Any suggestions besides moving up? Note he stopped immediately in front of the pile and was square but had a lazy sit which I corrected.

    Wayne, he is certainly progressing as I have been watching him since a pup! How old is he now? I lost track!

    I fixed the flare to the right. At first I moved closer, just before the walkway and moved back gradually. Everything was fine until I got on the mat. Then the flare to the right came back. So, then I moved the chair to the right side and that did it.
