    Shoot a gun watch the birds fly and watch the dog go
    Gentle in what you do. Firm in how you do it.

    You said, "Sit," and, "Stay," several times. Do you think that repeating a command like you did could undo the original command?

    I would prefer to make a correction when the infraction occurred.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    @ Bubba I'm still laughing at that one...

    @ Howard if you don't believe in corrections you have to increase the reward schedule to avoid the repeated commands/movement on the dog's part.

    Nice 'looking dog' !
    The girl is off to her first Trial.
    ...............
    Over here, the judges are looking for the dog to do the actions without the requirement or command to be steady,that way they 'Know' the dog has learned,rather than being continuously 'told'?..That would be 'Controlled' behaviour rather than 'Learned behaviour'. (Just my tuppence!) from afar?

    Interesting, when you consider that body language from the handler is usually far more meaningful to the dog than the actual verbal cues. No argument, just interesting.

They can fly around,honk and just make all kinds of racket and she doesn't pay them much attention but let one of those suckers back pedal over decoys and its all she can do to contain herself!
    Amen!

    Very Cool Jen!
