We had our first session with our friend dog behaviorist/trainer and it was fantastic. Everything feels possible again and I am energized!
She first got us to move forward with the collar/leash training by defining the next step: lengthen the time Skye is in the loop.
She also told us to mix several exercises in one training session. She already knows "123", "find-it" and "touch", and we are teaching her "give". All these are basic cues to build a good foundation for future training.
Training is fun again!
