How can you tell if your dog has been FF by the trainer like they were supposed to be, is there some sort of a test a person can do with their dog? Just curious.
The trainer will be glad to answer that question for you and give a demo on what he or she has done there at their place. You should already know what is expected, if not, then ask. Educate yourself. Your training is just begun.How can you tell if your dog has been FF by the trainer like they were supposed to be, is there some sort of a test a person can do with their dog? Just curious.
Are you trying to check the work before paying or buying the dog or is it just that you want to know.
If there is no rush, just press forward with training. If the dog isn't properly FFd it will show at some point.
Good question...How is force to pile working for you? Dogs will get burned out on drills so try and mixed it up with marks as well. Balance is the key. Drills in the morning then maybe marks in the afternoon.Actually it is just a curiosity question as I don't question the ability of my trainer. My dog fetches anything I ask her to, she just doesn't do it with a lot of enthusiam.
Is FF something that can be revisited or is there a way to "remind"?
Cannot get a demo from trainer as there are many states between us. We are working walk out blinds right now and she goes to pile every time.
That's good to hear. We are not here to beat you up. So please know that. Hell...for that matter...I don't know everything and I would be a fool to think such. I am always in learning mode in all aspects and that will be until the day I meet my maker. Just keep that in mind. OK...Just do the best you can and enjoy what has been given to you.Thanks for the help Glen and BJ. I ordered the TRT video set and will heed you advice on throwing marks. That was already my plan , and will proceed after I recieve the DVD's
