Hey Everyone, I desperately need some help with training my German Shorthaired Pointer how to walk on a loose lead. I have been diagnosed with a rare form of arthritis and really was hoping she'd help motivate me to stay walking, but I'm beginning to think it is unrealistic. We are going to a clicker trainer for help, but the basics for LLW are not working! I've trained my lab to LLW but have had no luck with this little girl. She is about a year old now. Here is what is happening: She walks nice in the house and in the back yard so she gets the idea when there are no or controlled distractions. When I take her out the front door, she immediately wants to hunt. Her eyes dart from typical bunny places to birds. I try the typical LLW techniques of being a tree and penalty yards and she just doesn't care.. she alternates from pulling extremely hard to going into a point at the end of the lead (pointing at a bird across the street). Penalty yards really don't work because she finds something new to look at very quickly (think ADHD hunting dog) I've tried making sure I have her attention before we leave the house and getting a solid "look" before we leave the front porch to no avail. As soon as we hit the grass she is overboard. Eventually, she gets really frustrated at not being able to go where she wants and starts becoming agitated/stressed and sheds with dander appearing (this is after about 15mn of LLW work). This leads to complete shut down. Any ideas???
