My 6 month old ran his first hrc test yesterday and got a pass. We had run a few mock tests with other dogs and his line manners werenít the best but they were even worse yesterday. It didnít matter how many times I corrected him on his flat collar he wasnít having it. It was a bit of a surprise as his obedience is good or so I thought. I put his pinch on after we were done running and I didnít even have to correct him so I know heís aware there is no real correction coming with the flat collar.
Are there any drills I can do to help with this. Heís young so I want to nip it in the butt. I was thinking doing mock tests with the flat collar and his heeling stick? He is also collar conditioned.
