Thanks for your support.. But please read my post in Me and My Dog.
Yeah, I guess she was never trained to walk. I got her at 5 months old. Oh, so thats what they teach there. I taught her that myself. I stay in DJ area. She heels me naturally at home. Outside, she takes the chance to walk in front of me. I keep her more focus by running but it increases the danger. She looks at me when I run and easy to slow down but walking pull like a wild tiger.
Hehe, I throw the Kong. It took a while to train her that. In the beginning, I just throw and she'll chase it and lie down to chew it. I call her and she'll come with it. I show her the food and she'll drop it. I say 'Drop'. It's a fun game and I train her how to drop stuff she picks up on the roadside. Sometimes I throw it without command. Thats means she doesn't need to bring it back to me. Now I throw and say Fetch, she'll fetch and bring it to me without recieving food. Quite good now . If I leave an item on the ground and say the command, she pick it up and bring it to me . I'm so proud of that trick.
Oh yah Toy, Hazel is 7 months old. Yeah, Teenager soon. Gonna die. I talk to her but she just pull. I stop when she pulls but it gets annoying when she winds herself around me. I try to walk happily, and not like a block of wood but she look at me once and take it into her head to pull. Oh, she can't resist chasing cats. I mean, can any dog? But dogs I've seen ignore anything except the road ahead and their owners.
Sorry for the long post. I've been trained not to double post in various forums. I hope you can help me. Before my dad gives Hazel up and gets another dog. The circle of problems arises once more then.
