Progress. Not perfection.

by Steph Mahrle

Bollywood and I worked on our off leash down/stays, and heeling with a lil break of fetch. He broke his down from about 50 yards away and took three steps toward me. I was able to say "no" and "down", to get him to plop back into his down. Downing from a distance is a helpful training exercise. Dog training is about progress, not perfection. Today, we worked on progress. 😊
