  8. 2 Food Game

    For drop on recall, I just say dogs name, never add 'come' so they know the different exercises. Also dog told what exercise they are about to do. Food is thrown behind dog so it doesn'tlearn to creep forwards. Food circuit does fast recalls, we throw food between our legs so dog used to running up fast
  9. Stands..

    Use a touch/target stick instead of bending down over the dog. We start by teaching stand with our right leg ahead (as if mid step) so dog isn't thinking you have stopped and want automatic sit. You can also get dog to walk backwards at heel for a few steps ( we are doing this for tight left turns, make the turn then immediately walk back) gets them thinking of backend not just being used for sitting!

  13. Is It Normal....?

    if you are in the habit of ignoring her until she settles, then she will stop the mad excitement and do as asked when you get in, if you are interacting with her as she acts mad, then this is reward enough to continue doing that!
  14. weetabix is an old fashioned way of feeding pups. When i bought in a dog from a person who has been breed for decades, she was on weetabix for one meal, tinned for another meal, dry for another meal and either another weetabix or scrambled egg for supper. I gave her a few days to settle into the home and then stopped all the weetabix, tins etc and after using the breeders buscuits we swopped to another and better brand of kibble too.
  15. How Old Do Studs Stay Fertile For?

    Why on earth would they put a stop to males over 6 years mating? In some breeds certain health problems can take a few years to show themselves (and there is no dna test for).
