Nearing the end of this session there were a lot of "mistakes" made. As I tried to create long distance, Xena kept breaking her down. What did I do? Take a step back. Instead of continuing to cause confusion by trying to get the distance I was getting earlier, I took some short steps away from her and rewarded her for staying in command. With a few successful reps, I finished off with one last long distance recall. ~
TAKE A STEP BACK IF NECESSARY. SLOW IT DOWN. GIVE YOUR DOG CLARITY.
