He also had a bit of a puppy moment when we were in a Heel and he darted into the woods after a turkey. He came right back after a minute but he did not turn right around and come back but instead trotted down a short path and out of the trees via the path of least resistance (instead of breaking through the underbrush). I can't decide if this was defiance or intelligence so I am giving him credit for both. But he did show us that he will take a correction when there is a big distraction but a "continuous" correction will turn him around when a normal tap won't. I will go over these collar modes with his owner but it simply means that in a very distracting setting he does better with a correction that lasts longer (a few seconds) instead of one that is extremely high.
All in all he had a good day. Tomorrow we are having some guides over for dinner and so we will take that time to practice his Down/Stay and Placemat. More heelwork is also in order.
