Please understand that I may send an information request so that I may gather what I need to better help you with your problem.
Do you just have her sit and wait or do you then do something else?
Does she know the command leave it?
What type of training do you do and is it in a class or are you doing it on your own?
Thanks for this help.
I'll follow your tip.
As I understand it, using the down command allows my dog to keep her mind on the passing dog. I need to help her get her mind on moving on.
I use food lures (pan drippings mixed with grated cheese and small, softened Evo kibbles) as a reward (this is the method I learned from The Good Dog Foundation Therapy 1 class that we just completed).
BAT training is new to me. I'd appreciate direction to some websites where I couikd learn more.
