Just thought I'd share my successful morning walk with Millie.

We walked over a very foggy Verulam Park which was lifting as time went on. We came across the usual Sunday morning football teams and Millie went straight for a ball that hit the back of the net :eek:. OH Crikey! I thought, please don't make me have to go and collect you. So I called her and she came straight back :whoo:

We then headed towards the lake and decided to walk on the foot path that divides the lake from the stream. I decided not to put her back on the lead as she'd been responding so well to everything. She kept to Heel and occasionally wandered away but didn't terrorise the ducks or swans. Then she gamboled ahead with a chocolate lab, right near a couple with a wibbley-wobbley toddler :eek::baby::eek: OH NO!, please don't knock the wibbley-wobbley toddler over, it really wont go down well!!!. So I called to Millie to WAIT!. She stopped dead and looked at me. Millie SIT! and she sat. She didn't move until I caught up with her :whoo::star:

How chuffed was I, perfect obedience :D:cool::D:cool: And the walk continued in that vane, with Millie listening and doing as she was asked, immediately.

This has helped me to know that Millie does understand what is asked of her and understand difficult commands. But tomorrows walk will probably be a complete shambles :devil: and she'll probably have selective hearing! and burst my proud balloon ;):p;)

I'm sharing this with you, for anyone who is struggling with training. Just hang in there, it does pay off. 10 out of 10 to Millie :D

Ah Julie I'm in awe! Well done! I so hope I can get that way with Nacho eventually. He is mostly an obedient little fella normally and I am one to expect great things - however to get him to wait and SIT when he's locked sights with something - especially a toddler has not happened to date! HE LOVES TODDLERS. Their parents don't love me! :( He only wants to lick, shove and sit on their heads. Is that too much to ask? :eek:

Well done Julie - it actually takes a lot of eeffort to keep the training going when the results are not as quick as you would like...I still find it
quite frustrating... we are still having good days/bad days....
Well done lovely Millie- your mum is soooo proud of you - as well she might!!
