Thanks. I'll cut back. Maybe I'm asking too much from her. I want it to be fun for her & stressing her out can't be fun. We are going to a match in our area this weekend. We aren't competing, but we want to check it out.

Thanks for all your suggestions & comments. We are using the clicker, praise, treats....every positive tool I can think of. Today I'm going to try adding distractions slowly, then maybe start practicing at the park, or in front of PetSmart, places away from home. We keep our sessions to 15 - 20 mins twice a day. Do you think that is enough?

Thanks! We are very new to Rally. Tess sits & downs great. I'm having a hard time keeping her attention to heel. At home, she's great, but at class she's so distracted she won't even heel for cooked chicken treats. I've tried picking up the pace to keep her interested & praising her, slapping my leg, etc... We've only been at it for a month but I did expect her to be more focused on me by now. She's 8 mos old but very socialized so she isn't afraid, she just can't focus. Do you have any tips or suggestions?

Hi! We are 4 Cresteds & love to share with other Crestie lovers. We have lots of issues, such as skin problems sometimes & food questions cause we are very picky eaters. We love to talk Cresteds.
