    I tried the walk again with your suggestions. I definitely was keeping the pressure on her rather than tapping. I especially was doing that when she was applying the pressure so it kept getting worse. I’ll post a video tomorrow of it. She is better… Or maybe I am better. By the end of the session I was holding the leash very lightly. That helped…[Read more]

    Tonight I tried “The Walk”. I had tried it when Annie was younger but decided at that time she couldn’t keep her mind on anything longer than 10 seconds so I put the leash away. Tonight when I put it on her she FOUGHT it. She bit the leash. She laid down and pulled it off with her front legs. She jumped up and spun like a top. I did my best…[Read more]

    Just did a gun introduction with my pup. I had already done it with a starter pistol very successfully. With the pistol there was NO reaction to the sound. Today I used a shotgun blank from 50 yards years away and she jumped a bit when it went off. She immediately went back to chasing the birds but bummer. I put the gun away and we have more…[Read more]
