Its more the guarding of the ball, her body language is saying its mine! once I have her facing the right way she will drop if I ask. I think a treat will sort this.
How would you recommend proceeding with the alert? what are we looking for? I have been avoiding the clicker in this situation as when I used it before I struggled as she is so quick! I was miss timing the clicks and stressing her out- she wasn’t sure what I was asking from her.
I’m not too concerned at what the finished alert will look like as long as she can point out where the truffle is I’m going to be happy! Do I just carry on as I am or do I need to look for longer touches or something else………..?
