I need help and advice to correct a problem I created with my 5 month old lab pup.
Since she was younger I used a lot of excitement to get her into the bumper but not enough obedience and now she is obsessed. She has no focus and she jumps on me and is extremely excited, so much so that her training and obedience is suffering greatly and we can't progress.
I've stopped retrieving for now and I'm going to do a lot of long walks and training heel, and sit. However, I'm afraid that once I bring out the bumper again she'll go crazy and the training will go out the window.
I've ordered Lardy's program and I'm waiting for it to be delivered.
How can I get her to focus and calm down? Has anyone had a similar experience?
