no i agree you can't baby em forever but, if you gotta build drive you can't do that and correct at the same time. smooch is not rosco and you could be makin mistakes expecting her to be like him. how old was rosco when he started this work?Lisa said:Thanks everyone who looked so far and commented.
Attitude: You may be correct. However, at this stage in the game (gonna be 2yrs old next month) if she can't handle working with a prong on then should she really be out there? How long do we baby them? Heck, a few times I have forgot my harness and flat collar at home when the helper wanted Rosco posted. All I had was a prong and he worked on that no differently than he would have on a flat collar or harness. Not that I am recommending that, but if she's worth a grain of salt she will work for me on a prong collar, if we need to go back to do some post work again (which I am sure we will) then on will go the harness. Like I said, I see where you are coming from and maybe she would benefit from a double line, but should I really need to complicate things like that with an amost 2 yr old dog who has been doing this since she was 10 weeks old? Time to remove the diapers... :binky: Can't baby them forever. JMO.
