Brilliant thread, guys, I hadn't found this one till Tigerlily updated it...Thank you Tigerlily! I am still working on heelwork with Ripley ( loose leash heel) close off lead heelwork as in this thread... I have worked on the elephant trick with Ripley and this has improved her turns no end... But she still slacks on 180 degree turns ( although her 90 degree turns are pretty damn good now!) I love the hold position practices that Orpheum uses. That is great practice! Will be trying them tomorrow! Love the thread! Thank you!
