Day 1 is about how dogs have to use different techniques to ”down” depending on which position they are already in.
I have used luring in this way for my dogs, but it was years ago, so I can see that they’re not very good at it now. They have better technique without luring.
I can also see that I have very loosely planned criteria, and it has been showing in the result of the positions, especially for Karma. With Rusa I was more strict in what I wanted, and it gave a better result.
With Karma I chose to start with having ”locked” front paws. However, I noticed that this did not come natural to her and it was very difficult to get it right. So then we restarted with ”locking” the back legs. I have a long way to go when it comes to the positions with Karma, and I just have to work through it.
