and yes MaTi..thank you for noticing..no histronics..no epileptic fits etc..just nice calm presence from the helper..letting the dog do all the work..the dog was allowed to learn to be active..not reactive
now that it's just him ..we'll pick up the pace and start training in all three phases more often..once every 4-8 weeks just doesn't seem to cut it
tracking is coming along..but i have more miles to go..i really almost feel like just finishing him towards the 3 then just going out and knocking the 1 & 2 out of the way quick quick...we'll see..
here's some more video of him..again..keep in mind..he's not been raised doing ragwork etc..just raised as a house dog
some retrieve fun..i platzed him..then 'fake' hid the DB in both boxes..went and moved him out of sight..then went back and hid it..
same concept here..except i let him see where i put the DB..then went and did about 10 mins of heeling/sit out of motion etc with him..then went back...again..not a formal retrieve..just fun stuff..
here is his very first session of bitework as a 4.5 mos old pup...we worked him twice that day..this was the second time..he had no prior rag work etc done..after this session..he was put up for another couple months..
