I wanted to ask all of you Guru's a couple of quick question. My Female Chocolate Lab has been doing fantastic after getting her to a great trainer for several months in that last year . She was doing pile work and was almost complete collar force to pile when I got and I wanted to work with her from there. I am working from Lardy's "Pile Work" chapter. She is now lining really well and stopping square on the wistle. I lack the experience to know when to move on to T drills.
I have read ahead a little and she has all of the tools to do the drills. She was taught to stop on whistle with the rope, and now is good on the whistle when being sent. What is the best way to teach or enforce stopping while coming in. What I was reading didn't seem very clear on that. I hope that is not too stupid of a question. She will be going back to the trainer in a month or so, but I wanted to see how far I could get her before sending her back
