Thank you Rick! I will do what I can to get some more video posted in the next week or so. Right now London and I are working on focus and engagement again. She has grown incredibly stubborn over the past month or so which brings me back into a fun phase of short ball on a string game.

We also had to revisit her out with the ball on a string because I'm we lost a little ground there as well.

Her out is a little bit more clean with the ball on a string now we have graduated from working in the back yard with the ball to the front yard (on leash of course) around neighborhood dogs walking by and cars zooming past us.

We will do this for a few more days and then graduate to the edge of busy parking lots and during dead periods at parks.

The ultimate goal is to work up to the Schutzhund field and I have her focus iron clad while we work obedience. I haven't gotten to work on her fuss all that much due to her lack of focus.

Everything is a game at the moment and we are having fun while she is frustrated with those teenager times.

I can say one thing, I badly underestimated the teenage times with a Dutch Shepherd puppy and I'm okay with that now. It's on me to reign her in and help her see me as her sole source of fun and entertainment.

Thanks for all of the kind words from all of you. As you may remember, being a greenhorn is never easy, but you MUST start sometime and I chose this period of my life.

Cheers all!
