Very interesting what your saying Kiz. I went to watch some sheep dog trials that were held locally. It was great watching the dogs work, but just individually, in a competition. Took some great pics.
I did notice the handlers can be quite firm with the dogs and I’m thinking we’re being a bit too soft with Tai. He has started to refuse to do stuff- not coming on first recall, I want to go this way (on lead) and sits down, I dont want to go out. And (back to thread) pulling on the leash. OH keeps threatening to buy a Halti (head collar) but I’m not keen. Keep telling him it’s because we’re not in control 100% of the time, and a headcollar wont address that.
