Teaching maintaining a focused heel with decoys running by.
His focus is amazing. You two look good together. I like how trim and fit he is,
Thanks. Because of the level of control the sport requires, a lot of the training is boring. But yesterday we worked on him holding a down in the back of a U-Haul while a decoy was hollering, moving and firing shotgun blanks. Then he was sent from the U-Haul, over a jump and into a guard of the decoy.
That didn’t sound boring. Repetition of anything would be monotonous if you practice long enough, but it needs to be done.
Here he is after being sent from a down in the back of the U-Haul, over the jump and into a guard of the decoy who was yelling and firing off shot gun blasts.
Those are very good pictures. The jump one is perfect. You caught him at exactly the best spot.
