If everything works out the way we want we are going to go for the first couple of certifications by the end of the month. She’s ranging pretty good, despite some people saying that a dog with “too much obedience” can’t range because they are too handler dependent. I still beg to differ 🙂
Also, the day before yesterday and yesterday itself, there were deer out in the field. Indra saw them, the hackles went up but she did not make any attempt to go after them. When the deer noticed that we were there they looked at us and went into the meadows and brush to the left. I immediately took her off the leash and sent her out on the search. She could have went after them. She saw where they went but she went to work instead.
You can’t have better training than and reassurance than that, can you?
