|Nice house, nice garden.|
If you have been training
I am also training my first GSD on formal OB by myself and there are some things which I struggle. It is brilliant when the training goes well.
Look forward seeing the more recent

That was really nice. You are doing a really good job with Prince. He sure has come a long way. Remember, he is a GSD, so stop correcting him like he is a chihuahua.
Keep up the great work with your dog. Way to go.

Poseidon...I love gardening and landscape design...When we built our home I was able to start with a clean slate ..Planting and designing was a lot of hard work, but very enjoyable...:) I do love working with Prince and will make a new video as soon as the snow thaws....What does loose in the heel work mean? I would assume you mean that he is not staying close enough?...Thanks for your input...
Jim.....Ya think....lol.. : ) Chihuahua...: ) ....lol....All joking aside you are not kidding...He is a handful...

|Very nice Deanna, and what a pretty dog.|

|Stop rewarding the down from the sit. That is what is causing the problem with the down. Never work distractions if you are not set up to block the dog from self rewarding.|
I couldn't think of anything snarky to say as it is too early. HA HA

desert dog...Yes, Prince is a pretty boy..Thanks...: )
Jeff...Would you explain what you mean ...Thanks...: ) "Stop rewarding the down from the sit. That is what is causing the problem with the down. "

I really enjoyed watching you training Prince.
I do similar videos' of my students'.We then watch it togather.
I find my students are able to see their shortcomings/errors
and effects of proper corrections.
He is very nice and I like his forcus/watch (looking at you)
and the way Prince tucks himself into position.
The position of Prince during heelwork,the about turn,
the different pace,(fast pace)the turns and the halt/stop& sit
correct.(he could be a little bit more animated.)
As mentioned by Poseidon, The reluctance/slow to go down,
could be due to not rewarding Prince for just the down position.
Try to teach only one exercise,the down from different positions.
i e,while walking ,running,from a stand ,etc.
And ensure the elbows are down before rewarding.
Try to get the dog,to get to the correct position,you do not adjust to the dog.
I'm sure you'll work it out. All the best in training.

|You're making the down a very negative place to be for your dog. Its little wonder he doesn't want to down.|
