I took Fozzie into the field today to work on his dogwalk with the Manners Minder. To say I am really pleased is an understatement . His first one was slow and tentative, but once he got confident & into his stride he was off. So far its achieving everything I could want. His focus is forward, I can position myself anywhere and he still drives to the end. He had one over run ( as you will see) but once I had encouraged him back to his position the next time he was perfect. I am doing a quick down & release at the moment to encourage the speed and I'm not being fussy with his position, as long as he has some part of his body/feet on the contact I am happy. He doesn't get rewarded if all his body is off the contact area.
I must apologise for my spelling mistake on the video. I only realised it after I published it...Ooops
