Yes, first she goes up at the back and then the front follows. There is lots of speculation as to how big she is going to end up; she’s already taller than our 6 year old - at the back anyway. :?EvelynH said:she looks like, hardly anything fits...
and everything to long :wink:
That is interesting as one of my trainers gets very cross with people who walk their dog to heel and teach stop whistle at heel. She says it teaches the dog that the whistle means "come to heel and sit." You can then have problems sitting at a distance. She taught me to teach my dogs to sit a short distance away from me, and then increase the distance, but never to sit them at heel on the whistle. It has worked for me.Tobias said:Excellent photo John. I'm having trouble with the stop whistle. As a tracker I need it when Millie and I are working near roads or the dog is trailing an injured and dangerous deer. The problem with Mildred is that she thinks the stop whistle means stop turn around and commando crawl back to me. 8O It's very odd behavior indeed.
oh i do it... but in a certain way...barney2007 said:Two things I never do with the stop whistle now is:
1) stop the dog midway on a marked retrieve (very bad and creates a sticky dog)
