Okay, I know at least one member knows how to teach this, because he and Ellie have mastered it. Seen vids. Well done CollieMan. So, I've worked some on sitting/down/whatever-stay in mid heel--walking with dog at heel and then giving a command. Handler never stops, continues to walk, but dog immediately drops back into a sit/stand/down-stay. But I'm not sure where to start when teaching a dog to do something in mid-retrieve. In CM's vids I've seen him send Ellie out for a retrieve and have her down halfway there, or sit, or stop, or whatever. I know how to teach the stop, but not the rest. In Skidboot's vids, he will stalk a toy and stop, back up, spin, etc on command before ever getting to the toy. So....tips? If my question is unclear, feel free to ask. Big thanks in advance!!
