Thats's exactly what she's doing. She seems to do better and do what I ask until I put the leash on her. Then she gives me a hard time. She will do the drills, but don't won't to. As soon as I take the leash off, she's ready to have fun again. I was told to make it fun for the dog, so that's what I'm doing. And I have been doing what Baydreams mentioned to. I have to go back several times and work with her on the sit, stay and here commands. I believe she's goin to be a pretty descent huntin buddy.
Most dogs don't do well on lead unless taught on lead. If I am correct in my reading here you really never used a check cord on your young lady? If that is the case thats the grounds for a refusal, Your fault not hers! It sounds like you are doing all the right things to correct the problems you are having and if it is working to YOUR SATISFACTION! I say stick with it! If she knows the command and is not obeying once again BACK UP AND REINFORCE YOU MEAN BUSINESS IT"S YOU THAT IS ALFA!! not her! Good luck and I am loving these updates and I am sure your hunting buddy is going to be all you want her to be!!! P.S. Congrats on your progress! you should be proud!
