It took patience and a lot of repeating exercises but she ended the day understanding that it is easier and less annoying to simply comply with a given command instead of making a whole argument out of it.
However, even though she was a bit of a pistol today she did 3 workouts with no-leash (except for 3 minutes where we used the leash again to remind her that if she stays close she gets affection and if she darts around she gets corrections) and these were longer workouts than she is used to. So she worked harder and longer than ever today and we still ended on a really nice note so I'm calling today an easy home run.
I did realize that she is much happier with her collar pack on her sighted side. If the collar pack (where she feels corrections from the remote) is on her blind side it startles her more and can be distracting because she looks for the source of the correction since it feels like a buzz or a mild tickle. So if I keep the collar pack on her sighted side she isn't as spooked if she gets an unexpected correction.
