I don't typically work the dogs together, unless we're doing stays. Buzz would always get shoved out of the way and stop working. We've been working on heeling a lot and last night I started working Buzz's heeling and recalls while Bailey was loose. He was SO GOOD! (And she was SO mad!) He was fighting for position and working really hard to stay where he knew he was supposed to. GOOD proofing exercise. Who would have thought the Buzz dog would be fighting to work? He's such a laid-back, go-with-the-flow kinda guy!
The kicker? Bailey's reward for being a pest was getting to heel. She was SO animated and with me it was crazy!
Now, if only I could get them fighting for position before we go into the ring.
