We then started the sit and the down without luring for the first week. This was difficult for a lot of the dogs as food was no longer guiding their way, the brains had to be switched on and only when they had achieved the position did the food make it's way to them.
Heelwork was really good by all but a few stood out such as Henry and Liberty and Patricia and Betsy but everyone is achieving this. If you go to the facebook page I have posted a video of Patricia and Betsy.
We also started teaching handlers what to do when the dog get's distracted by someone and does not immediately come back. I don't think we had any problems with this in class but obviously the distraction will be increasing as the weeks go on!
I am so please that everyone is putting in the work at home as it really shows in class.
