Thanks all. 🙂
Bev, in all seriousness the recall is really very good right now even with high distractions. I’ve been challenging her more but a switch must have gone off in her wee head and all of a sudden she just wants to go where i go. I never could do the “follow me I’m so very interesting” thing… so I gave up on that, i just tried to relate to her that I would always lead her into some good times and no matter what she’s found in the woods whatever I’ve got is more interesting 🙂 I dunno, that’s the only way i can explain it. :-\
The other day she literally chased a duck up the river swimming , jumping through the water when it got shallow until the duck remembered it could fly ::), she then separated another duck and did the same thing again, then another duck until I whistled for her and mid-chase she turned and swam directly to me on the shore 😮 Like I said, methinks a light bulb went off in her wee Sadie noodle ;D
I really have to get a video camera~!
