|Fortune smiled upon me today, as the field where I have been taking Ridley to train presented 3 novel scenarios to me.
First, its been training, and the field is deep, so a chunk of it was underwater. Good environmental practice. Second, first Wednesday of the month, so tornado siren tests are today, and we got lucky enough to be out when they were going off- REALLY good recall proofing!
And last, there are a couple of recycling bins next to the field, and again as luck would have it, they were picking up while I was out there too. Decided to proof down/stays, and snapped a video:
Down/Stay with Distraction
He had already been put in the down/stay when the vid starts, and he only attempts to break once when a lady drives up and starts to drop things off- bonus points for respecting my affirmation of the "down" command and holding it through all that racket! Good boy Ridley!!
(crappy phone video quality undermines just how loud that truck really was!)
