As of now, I'd still like to find a good home for her. Trouble is, I couldn't do it unless the person completely understood what they were in for. Some people enjoy working with these spooky dogs. I don't!ann freier said:she looks really attentive, bob. i know you're concerned w/her nerves--any plans at the moment? i bet i can get brix to look like that long enough for a picture!! (well-maybe)
i just have to find another person to take it!!
She can't take her eyes off the beautiful River Front Training Club shirt! 8)Liz Monty said:Hi Bob, she has great focus for the heel and sit in front. How did you accomplish that?? Food or toy reward or just is it in her nature?
We have 3-4 young (5-8 month) pups on the club and all their focus is quite strong like you see here. Even the Presa pups foose with great focus.Liz Monty said:Hi Bob, she has great focus for the heel and sit in front. How did you accomplish that?? Food or toy reward or just is it in her nature?
We don't put it in our mouths, or under our chin. I want to be able to hold the food right in front of the dogs face and it still looks me in the eyes to get to the reward.Liz Monty said:Most of the clubs taining I have seen around here like to keep the food in their mouth or under their chin to get the dogs eyes upward. When the eyes make contact they drop the food out. Most quick dogs, quick at catching that is will learn to catch the ball or treat as it falls from the air. Is that the way you did it?? I'm asking because I have seen a few dogs loose concentration and then look all over the ground for the treat and they have lost all focus.
