I like to go to as many different places as i can. I rarely will train in the same place for an extended period of time. I Think it builds the dogs confidence. By doing this i feel comfortable that no matter the situation my dog will have confidence in me as well as confidence in himself. We arn't afficially into handsignals yet, still finishing up on the FF. I want to have him very solid. we talk alot about going to fast in our training and skipping steps, and i have been guilty of this, until i saw the light. I have moved the other way now. I feel like o.k. he has it down, so what happens if i take it slow and give him another week or so to make sure he REALLY has it down. So far everything is going great. The only thing that makes me nervous about training out in grassy fields this time of year is the foxtails. I try to keep him out of those. I've already had one removed from his nose a when he was a pup.
.....you've got to ask yourself a question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?
