    Ok, got it. So, I’m clicking for the stop response to the raised arm. I was doing it out of order. Only just started last night.    I’ve been reading Clicker Gundog but I don’t know what I’d do without you Kiz. It’s like having direct access to the author to clear things up  8)

    I noted many similarities, but you definitely seem to have your own distinctive “slant” on things.  Very valuable resource, I feel very fortunate to have found this site.

    We tried it again last night and it went much better. As usual, I’m the one holding my girl back.

    A friend at work just got a video-cam for 10 years of service at work and as soon as he’s less excited about it I’m going to borrow it and let you see how we’re doing so far. I’m very pleased with the whistle recall and sit, her stay needs work, her heel/close is getting there, her “this way” is very good , “leave it” is average at best….  so we’re making progress….slowly  😉

    😀 very observant – the slant as you call it is because helen has highly cued but major active vizzies – i tend to go for the higly cues but less active breeds like clumbers – we meet in the middle  ;D

    how have you trained the leave it?

    and i mean literally – a what do you do/done exactly  😉

    sorry for the late reply, have only had time to drop-in the last couple of days

    well, ahem….umm…ermm….ok I haven’t really done anything formal for the leave it up to this point…it’s been one of those things that i keep meaning to get to but…anyway

    All I’ve been doing is giving her the ‘leave-it’ cue and ct when she does, so I haven’t been expecting much and have received exactly that.

    In my new Positive Gundogs book they start out with treats in a closed hand, progress to placing a treat in the dogs ‘possession’ zone and continue from there

    What i really need to do is set up a training schedule…mondays are stop training tuesdays are leave-it etc etc

    it’s been hard to keep on track over the holidays

    we’ve had Sadie exactly 4 months this friday and it’s her 10 month birthday today  🙂

    bless 10 months  ;D

    schedules mmm – you need to go at the dogs pace and you need to vary what is being trained – so 2 or 3 behaviours in anyone session so boredom doesnt set in and always end on a good note – if not a new achievement then something she already knows

    my version of training leave it is on here somewhere – will see if i can find the post for you

    thanks as always

    btw stop training is not going well  ???

    and it’s my fault. I simply can’t get myself coordinated enough to get my arm up, throw the treat click at the right time get another treat do it again blah blah

    I feel positively spastic

    guess this is why years ago i only spent one shift as a waiter before they put me on bar..I could only carry one plate at a time  ::)

    clicker in left hand – treats behind clicker – treat in right hand between thumb and middle finger – visula cue first finger and arm high in air – dog stops on seeing visual cue go up you click and release the treat that is between thumb and middle finger over the dogs head – while she eats it you set up for the next one

    how much is the air fare to canada  ::) ;D ;D

    will look for clairs stop vid
